INEOS Grenadier X Best Coffee: An adventurous partnership
Cycling and coffee have gone hand in hand for a long time. At Best Coffee, we’re proud to be continuing the rich tradition of cyclists seeking out a coffee stop. We’re teaming up with fellow coffee lovers, INEOS Grenadier to highlight cycling friendly cafés, giveaway unmissable prizes and keep energising the adventurous!
Back in the 60s coffee machine manufacturer, FAEMA sponsored a Tour De France team, probably most famous for their rider Eddie Merckx, who is still arguably one of the most famous tour riders of all time.
In 1987 the National Federation of Coffee Growers in Colombia sponsored team was responsible for producing the first ever South American rider to win a grand tour, Luis Herrera.
Aside from sponsorship deals, coffee and café stops have long been at the centre of cycling culture. There are some obvious benefits to a caffeine hit mid-ride. Caffeine is a stimulant; capable of improving alertness, concentration and energy levels.
A great addition to any workout; it’s particularly useful for distance cyclists who need to maintain focus for long road rides. A coffee stop mid-ride can reduce feelings of pain & fatigue and for this reason (and maybe something to do with cake…) most cycling clubs will plan their routes around cycle-friendly café stops. This summer, with the help of Best Coffee and INEOS Grenadier you’ll never miss an opportunity to refuel at the very best cycling-friendly cafés.
