One of beautiful parts of the “coffee ride” is its brevity.
Or somewhere in between.
Pick your distance, pick your brew…..and enjoy the ride!
- A ride around the quiet residential streets of Kingsville, with a stop at Red Lantern Coffee Co. on Main Street West for an Americano and a mini quiche is a perfect getaway, without leaving town.
- ***12 km tour of the town.
- A ride north along the paved shoulder of Division Street North, then a couple turns on quieter roads brings you to Cottam. A coffee (and something sweet or savory) at Auntie Aldoo’s Kitchen makes for a wonderful mid-day ride.
- ***25-32 km ride.
- Heading west of the Town of Essex, if you ride a bit of Greenway rail trail, then some paved township roads, you will find the 14th Coffee Co (on the 14th Concession, of course). Hopefully you have room in a pocket or bike bag for some freshly roasted coffee beans!
- ***Just under 70 km as a loop.
- A more ambitious ride on paved roads brings you to historic downtown Amherstburg, home of Caffeine and Company. This is a longer undertaking, but the lunch items, decadent baked good and of course, the coffee, makes it worthwhile.
- ****Almost 100 km loop.
Henry Rollins said ,”What goes best with a cup of coffee? Another cup.” But what I think the answer he was looking for was “A bike ride.”
Enjoy the ride!
