Café Cycliste at the Tour de France

Once again Velopresso was represented at the worlds biggest bike race, the Tour de France. As is long customary the race visits other countries along its route, and this year’s edition saw stage 16 finish in a bunch sprint in the beautiful city of Bern, Switzerland. Charles Mayor of Zurich-based Café Cycliste was there to serve pedal-powered coffee to all the cycling fans, as the racers flew by (it was World Champion Peter Sagan who took the win ahead of Kristoff and local hero Cancellara in 6th). Café Cycliste’s presence at the Tour made it three years in a row for Velopresso following on from us – Velopresso Ltd – in 2014, (stage 4, London) and roaster and café team Brandmeesters in 2015 (prologue time trial, Utrecht). We’ve been lucky with the route so far, but hopefully as we expand the opportunities to take part in ‘le grande boucle’ will continue… We wonder whose turn will it be to ‘fly the pedal-power flag’ in 2017?
