I tried 12 ways of carrying coffee while riding a bike. Here’s the best way to sip on your commute.
The 12 ways of carrying coffee while riding a bike
While riding my bike one recent chilly morning, disaster struck in the form of a dropped coffee.
Which got me wondering if there was a better way of enjoying my morning jolt while riding my bike.
So, after a robust conversation with some of you, I decided to test a dozen different methods of drinking coffee while riding.
Watch the video for complete details:
- 1:15 – Ride with one coffee in one hand.
- 1:36 – Ride with one coffee in hand, with no lid.
- 2:33 – Handlebar mount (in this case, I used a Handlestash: https://handlestash.com/)
- 3:42 – Handlebar mount with travel mug (in this case, I used a Contigo Travel Mug: https://www.amazon.ca)
- 4:49 – Travel mug in bottle cage.
- 6:33 – Travel much in panniers (in this case, I was using Vincita panniers: https://www.amazon.com)
- 7:11 – Travel mug in rear basket.
- 8:03 – Travel mug in front basket.
- 8:54 – Travel mug in backpack.
- 10:10 – Using a Yeti Rambler (amazing for keeping hot drinks hot: https://www.yeti.com)
- 11:35 – Using a hydration pack (you know, like a Camelbak. Like this one: https://www.amazon.ca)
- 13:51 – Using a beer helmet (seriously, don’t try this. But here it is: https://www.amazon.ca)
- 14:08 – My favorite.
