Coffeeneuring Week 1: It’s On!
We’re almost one week into the Coffeeneuring Challenge, and already I’m amazed by all the people riding their bikes to tasty beverages all over the land.
Some ride to four-walled establishments, and others enjoy beverages in the open air.
Much of the coffeeneuring activity is taking place on Twitter (search the #coffeeneuring hashtag), the Coffeeneurs Facebook group, and it’s also going strong on Instagram (also on the #coffeeneuring hashtag). If you’re on flickr, the Coffeeneuring group is here. Please join in as you like.
In this week’s update, I would like to draw your attention to the Coffeeneur Challenge bloggers. Here’s what I know:
