Coffeeneuring Challenge Update: Government Shutdown Rule
Today is the day! After another year of waiting, the Coffeeneuring Challenge begins again. Where will you ride? How will you plan your weekends to complete all seven coffeeneuring trips?
Because the Coffeeneuring Challenge is a global phenomenon, but a Washington, D.C., operation (accept no substitute!) and many who coffeeneur are federal workers I am expanding Rule 3 as follows:
Rule 3: Only Saturday and Sunday rides qualify. Weekday rides are ineligible, unless one of the following applies to you:
a. You have a job that does not have a Monday through Friday tour of duty. In that case, your days off are considered your weekend;
b. You are retired, in which case you may choose the two days that you consider to be your weekend days for the sake of the challenge and stick to them for the duration; or
c. You are furloughed, in which case you may use weekdays to complete your coffeeneuring trips for a maximum of two trips per week until the furlough ends.
No other exceptions, unless you can make a convincing case for one.
Coffeeneuring is an essential activity; riding bikes and drinking coffee (or other hot beverage of your choice) is a simple pleasure well worth our time to do.
