Interested in the Coffeeneuring Challenge? Here’s what you have to do to play.
- Ride your bike to 7 different local coffee shops from now through October.
- Only Saturday and Sunday rides qualify. Weekday rides are ineligible.
- Only 1 coffee shop per day counts. If you visit 7 coffee shops in one day, you may choose only one as a qualifying ride.
- You must do a short write-up of your experience that includes: where you went (address and website, if possible), the date you went there, what you drank, who was with you (or state whether you were solo), total mileage, and a few details about your coffeeneuring ride.
- You must take at least one photo during your ride, caption it, and submit it as verification that you actually went to the coffee shop and drank a beverage there.
- Hot chocolate qualifies, as do tea beverages.
- You may not combine your coffeeneuring ride with any other ride such as a populaire or brevet. You may, however, combine your coffeeneuring ride with a grocery run, ride to the gym, or other transportation/utility-oriented ride.
- Your ride must be at least two miles total, but there is no maximum so yes, you could ride 100 miles for a cup of coffee.
- There are no geographic limitations to the Coffeeneuring Challenge.
- You have to go to 7 different coffee shops, although you may ride to multiple locations of a chain (though that is not preferred).
- Deadline for submission for the Coffeeneuring 7 is November 2, 2011.
- Submissions must be sent to me at gersemalina “at” gmail.com.
- All qualifying rides must be submitted at the same time. That is, send me all 7 together, NOT ride 1, ride 2, etc.
- Premium unknown, BUT you will be featured as a guest post on this blog. So fame is part of your premium. Beyond that, I cannot say.
- During Columbus Day weekend (October 8-10), you have three days to accomplish two qualifying coffeeneuring rides.

|I ended up having to lock Betty way on the other side of the lot to this barrier. I don't like locking my bikes to anything that is not permanently embedded in the ground.|
|The room itself is carefully designed to reflect the evolution of human understanding.|
|They went on forever..they still use this as a back-up system just in case.|
|A crazy homeless man decided to demonstrate some push-ups for me as I was locking up Betty. I did not take a photo of that.|
