Southern Lights 10K
The Meteor was founded by business partners Doug Zell, the founder of Intelligentsia Coffee, and Chris St. Peter, a former attorney. Both are avid cyclists and close friends, largely through their shared love of the sport. Their vision began with a desire to create a beautiful environment that combines all the things they love under one roof: great coffee, wonderful wine, delicious food, and, of course, bicycles. Thus our motto was born:
Espresso | Champagne | Chain Lube.
Through The Meteor they hope to offer a unique, all-encompassing experience that strives to be better as each day passes.
