Why call our website Category Cafe?
Category was chosen as it is related to cycling.
For any climb to be rated it must be at least 500 meters in length with an average grade of 3% or more. All climb scores are based on distance, grade/elevation change, and maximum elevation. The combination of these factors drives all final climb categories and there is no subjective analysis used in the final scoring of any climb score. All other climbs that do not meet the criteria for HC to Cat 4. HC climb – “Hors Categorie” – (a French term for above category) climbs are the hardest rating/score given to any climb!
We plan to provide cycling news, advocacy and reviews from time to time as well.
Cafe was chosen as we believe Coffee and cycling go well together.
We will strive to post compelling coffee content including new an notable cafe’s, coffee and of course health benefits of coffee.
