  • 14. Win for you, win for us, lose for them

    After a short hiatus the Bicycle Bean Boys (nickname pending approval) are back as they ramp up the anticipation, the tension of Mission to Milan: The Greatest Ever Coffee Ride. Routefinding, sartorial choices, languages, and of course the bid to become World, European or Village Sign Champion. It's a quick funny one this week. Should be alright. Watch our YouTube channel it's banging: ANTI COFFEE YOUTUBE CHANNELEnjoy!
  • 13. Ramblings From the Road - NC500 Bonus Content

    A collage of bonus recordings we made on our journey around the NC500. Recorded in multiple segments starting at Inverness Castle we take you to our first village sign sprint before we record our tired tones of the first night in a B&B and on to the beginning of Day 2. We then catch up in Ullapool before a monologue of Tony fixing his broken bike in Scourie. We go over our thoughts upon reaching John O'Groats and then a final word from DS Nelson back at the castle upon finishing.Listen back to Part 1 & 2 of our North Coast 500 drama to get some context to these ramblings!
  • 12. MORE DRAMA on the NC500 (part 2 of 2)

    Here comes the conclusion to this immense trip around Scotland's North coast. What happened to Tony's bike? Did they finish in one piece? Will we ever find out what 'pillock' means? All these questions will be answered in the next instalment of Anti Coffee. Subscribe if you like this content. And tell your friends.

  • 10. Two Pints Deep

    A largely unedited recording from the night before our NC500 training adventure. Alcohol was consumed. Was that the appropriate preparation for three days of back-to-back 200km riding? Only one way to find out. Follow us this week on instagram @anticoffee.anticoffee for real LIVE updates and visual content (yes you will get to see our faces) as we take on what some are calling 'a poorly thought out and reckless mission'.

  • 9. NC500? Can't wait to see it

    The last proper one before we abandon civilisation for the great wild north. But let's not get too ahead of ourselves - there will still be moules frites at the Applecross Inn. In this episode we discuss some of the most important advice from our guests, we'll hear from the boss who we're hoping is VERY happy with our training (eating) progress and probably do ourselves out of any future tasty sponsorship deals. With a week to go before our first big training milestone, how are we shaping up to complete the Greatest Ever Coffee Ride. The only way to find out is by listening to Anti Coffee.

An idol of ours, a literal Local Legend, a man famous for his West Highland Way FKT movie and someone who probably spends more time on his bike than off it.
