Mr. and Mrs. Bike Snick Go Coffeeneuring

We can’t go into the weekend (THE FIRST WEEKEND OF OFFICIAL COFFEENEURING SEASON) without another example of how coffeeneuring happens.

And, of course, it’s always nice to give the locals of #BikeDC and #BikeArlington a shout-out, especially ones who’ve taken such care with capturing their coffeeneuring images. With that, I present you with the coffeeneuring rides of Mr. and Mrs. Bike Snick from this past year.

#4, 10/14/2013
Where: Peregrine Espresso, Eastern Market ()
What: soy latte
Which bike: CaBi.

Rode with Mrs. Bike Snick. This was our first time using CaBi. We had two free 24 hour passes from Bike To Work Day. The passes worked great and the bikes were easy to use.

It was fun planning multiple hops that were less than 30 minutes. We saw Georgetown, L Street cycle track, the White House, Pennsylvania Ave cycle track, the Capitol, 11St Local Bridge overlook, Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, Nationals Park, and more.

How far: 13.3 miles

#5, 10/19/2013
Where: Chesapeake Bagel Bakery
What: small bold coffee, half of a cinnamon roll
Which bike: Fixed gear bicycle.

Rode with Mrs. Bike Snick on her road bike. She has completed 4 coffeeneuring rides now and is enjoying it.

It was cloudy and we felt a few sprinkles. On the way to coffee we stopped at CVS to get a picture printed. This was the topsy-turvy cake my wife made for a friend’s wedding. After coffee we picked up the prints.

How far: 3.2 miles

#6, 10/20/2013
Where: Caribou Coffee, Falls Church

#8 (Mrs. Bike Snick’s #7), 11/11/2013

Mrs. Bike Snick joined me on her road bike; this ride completes her 7th coffeeneuring ride.

It was cloudy and windy, but we sat outside reading under Greenberry’s heat lamps – nice!

The manager came outside to tell us two new bicycle racks have been installed across the street. These are among several recently added in downtown McLean. The racks will be dedicated later this week by Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust.

How far: 3.7 miles

Congratulations on completing the challenge, Team Bike Snick! I hope you are up for another round of coffeeneuring. It all starts again October 4!
