“Rule #56 // Espresso or macchiato only.
When wearing cycling kit and enjoying a pre or post ride coffee, it is only appropriate to drink espresso or macchiato. If the word soy/skim latte is heard to be used by a member wearing cycling apparel, then that person must be ceremonially beaten with Co2 canisters or mini pumps by others within the community.”
A picture and a comment to celebrate the close association that exists between road cycling and drinking coffee. Also, the completion of another successful year’s partnership between albaRosa Cycling Club and La Bottega Milanese, an independent coffee establishment of the highest order in West Yorkshire. AlbaRosa club ‘caffeine rides’ are hosted from this espresso bar in the heart of Leeds, where lycra-clad roadies and their machines are made welcome and rub shoulders with pinstriped city-types. Alex, the bar’s founder, might glide in on his white steel city bike, greeting customers and quietly overseeing service, product and the unique vibe of the place:
The Italian Espresso Bar is a social affair, the embodiment of continental cafe culture through lifestyle & the daily dynamics of its urban folk ‘ The Milanese ‘
…so promises the slogan on La Bottega’s website.
Molto bene! Grazie
