Suggestions for cycling cafes on the roads of Quebec!
As bike sales have skyrocketed in the last few months and many of us are spending our summers and vacations in Quebec, we would like to share with you, in collaboration with l’Érable du Quebec, our favourite places to drink a good coffee, enjoy goods made with maple syrup, and rest during your next bike ride!
And while you’re waiting to recharge your batteries at these addresses, we recommend maple syrup, a natural source of energy, to accompany you on your next bike ride. That’s right! Maple syrup provides simple carbohydrates that are easily converted into glucose, a necessary fuel when you exercise. The easiest way to consume it is certainly to add it to your water bottle, with a little orange juice, lime juice and salt; a 100% natural home-made energy drink! For the past three years, l’Érable du Quebec has been the official source of energy for the Quebec Cycling Federation.
Here are our suggestions for cycling cafes where you can take a well-deserved break!
We hope you’ll have the chance to explore Quebec on two wheels, it’s beautiful, with so much to discover, and it’s so important to be active. We thank Érable du Québec for helping us discover these cycling addresses that may be on our summer road trip! Remember that incorporating maple syrup in your snacks and drinks on the road is a great way to get your strength back while paying attention to your diet. A natural source of energy with nutritious vitamins and minerals that has won over both amateurs and professionals. If it’s good for your body and tastes good, why deprive yourself?
Founded by four friends who are passionate about cycling, Le Club Espresso Bar is a cycling cafe located in the heart of the Plateau that offers excellent third-wave coffee, as well as a selection of healthy small dishes. Here, you’ll find a grilled cheese with maple ham as well as a granola with maple syrup. Yummy!
