Calling all chocolate fans: Hot Chocolate Rides are back for their third year running! We’re teaming up again with our friends at El Barrio Bikes to host three weekends of bike tours that will have you sipping some of the best hot drinks across Harlem.

Ride leaders will share tips for riding during winter weather, all while rolling to some of our favorite neighborhood coffee shops. You’ll brush up on how to gear up and be seen, keep the right tire pressure, and what to do if there’s muck or ice.

Our stops will be:

January 14:

Sojourner Coffee

787 Coffee

Plowshares Coffee & Roasters

January 21:


Sugar Hill Cafe

Lucille’s Coffee & Cocktails

February 4:

Ginjan Cafe

Janie’s Life-Changing Baked Goods

Dell’Aria Caffe

After several rain-outs in December, dates are now Sundays, January 14, January 21 and February 4, from 10 a.m.-noon.

No bike? No worry. Let us know in advance and we can provide both helmets and bikes thanks to support from Citi Bike.
