Coffeeneuring patch

What Did I Win For Finishing?

This year’s premium is a custom patch in the shape of a coffee cup with the title “coffeeneur” embroidered in black letters along the bottom of the cup. I will be mailing one to each finisher and you may expect to receive yours around the new year. I will let you know when I send them out so you may know when to expect them.

Hey, I Should Be On This List!

Did I miss you? Was your submission lost in the ether? Let me know via the “Contact” tab and I will adjust the results accordingly.

In addition, if there is any change you would like to make to how your name is displayed, please inform me of that as well.

Congratulations to everyone who finished!


  1. So many coffeeneur finishers! Even 2 others from Maine! So awesome. We were really happy to be able to get all 7 in this year, it was super fun (aside from the back injury…). One little correction, Gary H. is actually Gary S., we have different last names. 🙂


  2. Thank you, MG for a wonderful event. I went through the list twice, and if I counted correctly, I am the only Vermont finisher. Come on Vermonters, for a state that is voted second healthiest, there ought to more than one on this list!? Next year, I’ll be broadcasting this event to challenge regional riders.


  3. Yay, I’m on the internets! Thanks again, MG, for organizing such a fun fall adventure. Hope you get a bit of rest around the New Year before starting up again. Hey, wait, the Rapha Festive 500 starts in just nIne days!


  4. OK. I have a confession which I failed to mention while compiling my coffeeneuring adventures. On the way back from my final trip to City Brew, a wonderful Montana-based chain of coffee shops, I stopped by my favorite local brew pub, Carter’s, and had a pint. It’s just that the wind was in my face and I had worked up a powerful thirst, and besides, the sun was over the yardarm. Perhaps next year there could be a special category for pilsneering. porterneering?
    Just a thought.


  5. Thanks for organizing this! I had a lot of fun getting back on my bike after a break this summer initially due to a minor injury and then extended due to major inertia. This was a great way to get back riding, and to do some more local rides than I usually due. Lots of fun! I am going to try to make it at least a monthly thing from her on.


    • That should be; more local rides than I usually *do*, and trying to make it a monthly thing from *here* on. Although riding from her on might be interesting too. (I can spell fine; it is my typing that’s the pits.)
