Scholars have acknowledged bicycles’ deep connection to coffee since discovering that Juan Valdez's prized mule was actually a bike with a Snuggie draped over it. Push the pedals with an extra buzz with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a punch card valid for five coffee drinks, pastries, or beers under $4 at Zone 5 Coffee & Bikes (up to a $20 value).
The experienced staff at Zone 5 tweaks two-wheeled transporters and supplies the caffeinated catalysts needed to kick-start an active lifestyle. Customers sip cups of steaming coffee ($2 for 12 oz.) made with organic Jittery Joe’s or locally roasted Lucky Goat Coffee beans or wake up whiskers with a foam beard from a frothy latte ($3–$4.80). Biking baristas also whip up cold, creamy frappes ($3.75 each) and get coffee mugs in the holiday spirit with a spiced gingerbread latte ($3.50 for 12 oz.), and hungry mouths can munch specialty muffins ($2.75 each) and assorted breakfast pastries ($2 each). Decorative tap heads deliver libations faster than Donkey Kong chucking wine casks, filling flagons with a rotating selection of six craft brews such as Sweetwater 420, Highlands oatmeal stout, and Bell’s amber ale ($4 each).
As mouths sip, eyeballs drink in broadcasts from the café's HDTV and check the weather for upcoming rides on a free WiFi connection. In addition to craft coffees and brews, Zone 5 also proffers a stable of well-tuned pedal transports and gooey cinnamon rolls big enough to replace a flat tire.
