  • I’ve never understood this. Do people grab the coffee and bike with it? Or do they wait around and drink it? both seem odd to me.

    • biking on 14th (not 15th) seems odd to me.

      • You don’t hit nearly as many lights on 14th street as you do on 15th street, and 15th street southbound doesn’t even start until V street, so those of us coming from further North than V are already on one of the other streets.

      The one time I stopped by, I drank it there. And talked to them about a coffee mug cup holder that they sell that mounts on the handlebars. I need both of my hands to bike.

  • I used to ride with a full coffee mug in my backpack every single day, but it exploded in my backpack a while back. I sent the mug back to the manufacturer and they sent me a replacement, and a few months later, the replacement exploded in my backpack. Since then I haven’t been drinking coffee. So I plan on stopping by there tomorrow morning in hopes that these people have the inside knowledge on what coffee mug is best for bike commuters.

    • clean kanteen makes an insulated mug that has a regular screw top (non-cafe/sipping lid) that i use to commute with. i keep the sippy/cafe lid at my office, and switch it out when i get to work. keeps my tea nice and hot, and i’ve never had a blowout. as a bonus, it also fits in my water bottle holder so if it did leak, it wouldn’t get all over my stuff.

      • Just googled it…the first site that came up actually had a picture of their 20 oz mug in a bottle cage just as you described. Thanks for the share.

  • best commute ever. worth being late to work
