  1. Bummer…you’re already halfway done by the time I’m back from sea. With my 3 weekends already booked…

  2. Is it possible that I can declare my home a coffee shop and let it be a destination for some friends (or strangers, for that matter, provided they participate in coffeeneuring) on one particular weekend?

    • Hmmm… I will think about it, but I’m learning toward no.

      • Well, you make the rules, but here’s my argument in favor: I will make my home available to anyone coffeeneuring in my area, whether or not I know them, make sure word gets out (which it already is, through a facebook post) and I will make their choice of espresso drink or pour-over with my home roast coffee, or tea or cocoa if they prefer. From their point of view it’s like a very informal coffee shop, with the advantage of being free. I see it as a great way to bring local cyclists together, and other than money changing hands part, I don’t see anything missing or against the coffeeneuring spirit.

  3. I am so pleased at the return of Coffeeneuring, even though it means six weeks of trying to spell n-e-u-r in the correct sequence and often getting it wrong. Thanks for doing this MG!

  4. Looking forward to participating from Penang, Malaysia this year.

  5. Ok this year I’m in! Where are the rules?

  6. Must you consume the coffee at the time of the visit? For example, can I count a ride to coffee-roaster to buy whole beans?

    • I say yes, provided it is in the spirit of the event (not to sound cheesy), but you know, if you are picking up beans it can’t be from a big box grocery. You can coffeeneur to a gas station for coffee, but you have to coffeeneur to a roasters (or a tea emporium or whatever) for beans.

  7. I’m going to give this a try. I’m going to have to get creative with the “coffee” shops as we only have a few. Just about everyone serves coffee right.

  8. New rules you say?
    Official Announcement?

  9. What if the coffee shop is within a mile of your house but you take the long way to make it a mile+, does that count?

  10. East Orange,Newark, Montclair, NJ is in :)
