Some would describe the streets of the Phoenix Metro Area as dangerous for bicyclists in a multitude of ways from the blistering heat to the infamous drivers. One man and his coffeeshop full of personable personnel is working to change that narrative. Erick Cedeño and the folks at Bicycle Nomad Café believe that the Valley of the sun is the place to be for cycling, you just need to know how to get from A to B. At a recent event Erick talked to the audience, his beat and pitch were passionate, reminiscent of a poetry reading or story telling. He described his travels from coast to coast and border to border, all powered by just his bike, which gives you insight into his ability to navigate and credibility to his opinions about our city streets. He provided easy access ways from Tempe to Downtown Phoenix, Downtown into Uptown and I am sure he has one from Apache Junction to Anthem. We are excited to see Erick, his coffee and his crew continue to mold the city into a cyclist haven. With every car emitting an average of 4.16 metric tons of CO2 annually, every bike trip counts, and the Nomad makes it that much easier.* If you want to hear about Erick’s adventures, get great info on routes or just chat with his incredible staff go over to Bicycle Nomad Café and grab some Press Coffee, some Maya tea or some yummies!
