Friday Coffee Club Turns Three

Today we celebrated three years since that first tweet from Felkerino introducing Friday Coffee Club, a weekly D.C. meetup of commuting cyclists around the area.

Three full years, and we’re still meeting and enjoying morning beverages together. I don’t want to overanalyze the reasons why people continue to come to Friday Coffee Club, but I’ll throw a few thoughts onto the page.

No confusion. Friday Coffee Club is every week, same time, same place.

People invite their friends to go on a bike ride that ends at Friday Coffee Club.

You can exchange notes with other commuters without a 140-character limit.

An opportunity to stop and see friends you might only otherwise cross in passing.

Friday Coffee Club boasts the shortest group ride ever– the weekly rollout through the White House Plaza.

There’s coffee, and latte art if you’re lucky. Swing’s has been good to us.

Oh, and of course, many photo ops.

Here’s to another great year of a.m. fellowship at Friday Coffee Club. Thank you, BikeDC.


  1. I’m so grateful to you and Ed for introducing me to Friday Coffee Club– I’ve met so many awesome people these past three years. Here’s to many more– cheers!


  2. When I work in DC, I must pass this place on my commute, but never really noticed. Maybe I’ll try to meet up with you the next time I’m in on a Friday. I usually need to be at my destination by 8:25, though, so I’m not sure if that’s too early.
