For the past couple weeks I’ve been playing around with combining early mountain bike rides and making coffee.
I first saw the combination through The Path Less Pedaled‘s Instagram feed. A group of cyclists in Portland (of course) would get up early and make coffee as the sun rose.
It seemed like a fun idea, so as the weather turned hot and the rides got early, I thought I would give making trail-side coffee a shot.
Turns out it’s really a lot of fun. I’ve been bringing a GSI collapsible pour over coffee cone, a Primus backpacking stove and it’s fuel, a kettle and a mug.
It doesn’t add much to the weight of the pack and makes for a very nice mid-ride break.
