A big CONGRATULATIONS to all the people who completed the Coffeeneuring Challenge this weekend. Remember, you must e-mail me your submissions to gersemalina “at” gmail.com. Yes, even if I have been twitterspying on your adventures, you need to e-mail me your final submissions. Due date to send in your coffeeneuring […]
October, 2011 Pre-Ride Many people who start randonneuring already know about Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP), but when I joined RUSA in 2004, I only knew what a fleche was. I had no […]
Have you ever wondered why men take up cycling? I used to think it was because they wanted to stay fit, be sporty, or maybe use a mode of transportation that was better for the environment. But recently I’ve concluded that it’s really about leg shaving and the pursuit of […]
I can’t believe the Coffeeneuring Challenge has gone by so quickly! Only one weekend remains to bag those final two coffeeneuring rides to complete your seven trips to coffee. So who’s been out coffeeneuring? Glad you asked!
Sometimes I do a little Five Things Friday over on my flickr page. There have been a lot of pedestrians walking in the 15th Street Bike Lane lately. Lately, I’ve been thinking about ownership; for example, we are proprietary about our roads here in the U.S. Sidewalks are for pedestrians […]
Two full weekends remain in the Coffeeneuring Challenge, leaving participants with four possible days to complete their remaining seven coffeeneuring rides. If you haven’t completed at least three rides by now, then you will have to wait until next time to make it to the Coffeeneuring Challenge podium. Coffeeneurs, how […]
When people first started talking about this new thing called “Twitter,” (which I know is not new anymore) I didn’t get it. I understood Twitter was supposed to work as a social networking tool, but social networking about what? What you ate for breakfast? Who cares about that? Twitter struck […]
Hi, all. I’ve been doing a little work on that “other” blog, The Daily Randonneur. It’s Rando Q&A time again. About time, right? This week we feature Rob Hawks, the RBA of the San Francisco Randonneurs. Read all about it here and enjoy!
I know that few hours remain in our Tuesday, but I want to apprise you of something that is currently under way in the Twittosphere. It’s #CyclingCapTuesday, the brainchild of Twitter users @travcaldwell and @SognRider. As the name suggests, #CyclingCapTuesday is the practice of wearing a cycling cap on Tuesday […]
How was the weekend, everybody? Did you get out for a cup or two? I did, and I know I wasn’t the only one. A quick search through the tweets shows that several tweeps went coffeeneuring over the weekend. And what a lovely weekend it was. Here are just a […]
One of Washington, D.C.’s premier running events took place today, the Army 10 Miler. Felkerino, Lane, and I were leaving town on our bikes just as the race was getting going, and converged with some of the participants as they crossed the Memorial Bridge. It was a beautiful morning to […]
Coffeeneurs, look up from your Kindles and cappuccinos! I bring you a special update about the Coffeeneuring Challenge! Tara, a Chasing Mailboxes reader and coffeeneur (or technically, a coffeeneuse), noticed a potential loophole in the Coffeeneuring Challenge, and asked: Does Columbus Day Monday count as a “weekend” day if I […]
Coffeeneuring Ride: Peregrine Espresso. 10-mile ride. Because our favorite coffee spot, Swings, is not open on the weekends, Felkerino and I have had to venture out into the coffee wilderness. Our coffeeneuring of late has taken us to a few new places, one of them being Peregrine in Eastern Market. It’s […]
More cyclists than I realized have been out coffeeneuring in hopes of successful completion of the Coffeeneuring Challenge and some fine cups of coffee along the way. Who are these coffeeneurs of note? I mentioned a few of them yesterday, and I just found out about three more.
The Coffeeneuring Challenge is in full swing, and coffeeneurs everywhere are rising to the occasion. If you haven’t started yet, stop fretting. You’re not too late! You still have four full weekends to complete the challenge of riding your bike to 7 coffee shops. Some of the coffeeneurs are blogging […]
