How to Take a Coffeeneuring Photo

While there is no shortage of rules for the Coffeeneuring Challenge, there is nothing specific in the rules about what constitutes an acceptable coffeeneuring photo entry, only that your ride must be documented in some way.  Even so, people regularly ask me what sort of photo will pass muster.

Does your coffee mug have to be in the photo? What about your bike? The simple answer to both of these questions is no. However, this post may give you some ideas for your future coffeeneuring photos. Below are some coffeeneuring photos from years gone by to fan the flames of coffeeneuring creativity.

Surely I’ve missed a few variations so if you have a signature coffeeneuring shot, please link me to it. Carry on, coffeeneurs. And if you have not yet begun the  Coffeeneuring Challenge, there’s still time to dip your wheels into this fall festivity. Four weeks to go. You won’t regret it!

And if you don’t want to commit to the formal challenge, but are interested in being part of the Always Be Coffeeneuring Club (no rules, no limits), you can still do that, too. Details here.

  1. I have been told by people that putting a dirty helmet on an eating table, is revolting. Just passing on comments I have heard when I placed my dirty helmet and gloves on said table.

    1. One of the coffee shops I visit has a rack for helmets & gloves to dry out – summer sweat or winter rain !
      Must get a photo of it in use, they love cyclists and no problem if you want your helmet with you to place on the table

  2. Out-take photo documentation of the smallest amount of coffee ever consumed during coffeeneuring…

    I think I was able to save about 5 drops before it spilled out of my toppled mug, ran across the picnic table, and dripped onto the leaves below.
