Hello friends, it’s been a little while. I’m still here, though, and I hope to return to a more regular schedule of blogging soon. Tooday features a guest post from fellow coffeeneur, blogger, and six-time Coffeeneuring Challenge finisher, Vannevar, who has put together some intriguing facts and figures about the latest edition of the challenge. Patches for this year’s challenge have been sent. If you did not … Continue reading Coffeeneuring Challenge Recap and Guest Post!
Before we close the book on another year, though, I’d like to share a few coffeeneuring facts with you in the off-chance that someone decides to develop his or her own coffeeneuring trivia game. Continue reading “Coffeeneuring Challenge 2015: That’s a Wrap!”
‘Twas the night before Coffeeneurmas, and all through the house… As we all know, coffeeneuring is a season, not a day, and what a great season it’s been. This year, 247 people rode their bikes to the finishers circle, and 8 achieved Honorable Mention.
Finally, the time to announce the Finishers and Honorable Mentions for the 2015 Coffeeneuring Challenge has arrived. Thanks to everyone for their patience as I organized the submissions. Continue reading “Coffeeneuring Challenge 2015: Finishers and Honorable Mentions”
The 2014 edition of the Coffeeneuring Challenge shows that people’s dedication to riding bikes and drinking coffee (or similar beverage substitutes) while also following a general set of rules remains strong.
After the homologation of results, the season ends with 175 Finishers and 4 people securing an Honorable Mention spot. Continue reading “2014 Coffeeneuring Challenge Finishers and Honorable Mentions”
It’s a great day here at Chasing Mailboxes as I am announcing the official finishers of the 2013 Coffeeneuring Challenge!
The 2013 edition of the Coffeeneuring Challenge is the largest yet, with
121 122 123 125 coffeeneurs following most all the rules and completing 7 rides to 7 different coffee shops over a period of 7 weeks.
I have more to share about this year’s Coffeeneuring Challenge participants, including more fabulous guest posts, but for now I want to recognize each individual who finished the challenge and tell you what they’ve won.
It’s taken a while, but the time is now right to begin announcing the Coffeeneuring Challenge Results for 2013. Ta Dahhhhh!
First up are the “I Was Going to Complete the Coffeeneuring Challenge, but…” Honorable Mention category. These
nine 10 12 13 15 coffeeneurs were unable to complete the full seven trips, but each person you see below completed four or more outings. Pretty good, I’d say.
After almost one year of waiting, the Coffeeneuring Challenge starts late next week.
A look back at the 2012 participants reminded me of the coffeeneur-centric cities.
As I looked through the coffeeneuring submissions, I thought it might be fun to share a few more facts about the 2012 coffeeneuring community. So hang onto your helmets and be prepared to be wowed by my data mining skills.
The first topic I thought I’d cover is the participation of women versus men in the challenge.
While I still have a couple of Coffeeneuring Rewinds up my sleeve, it’s time to announce the winners.
I couldn’t be more thrilled with the growth of coffeeneuring. In its inaugural year, 12 participants successfully completed the Coffeeneuring Challenge. In only its second edition, that number has grown to 51 coffeeneurs, each of whom visited 7 different coffee shops over a period of 6 weekends.
Of the original 12 coffeeneur champions, six returned to earn their coffeeneuring award a second year. Well done! They are noted with an asterisk (*) in the list below.
This post is for those who entered the Coffeeneuring Challenge with great ambitions, but for some reason or another, fell short in their quests to complete the Coffeeneuring Challenge. Don’t fret. You may still submit the coffeeneuring rides you accomplished and perhaps be eligible for the “I was Going to Complete the Coffeeneuring Challenge, but… Honorable Mention” category. Simply email me the rides you completed, … Continue reading I was Going to Complete the Coffeeneuring Challenge, but… Honorable Mention Category!
The intrepid coffeeneurs began their journey on September 24. Many started, but the weeks passed quickly and unfortunately, not everyone who started made it to the finish.
For some, pressing life events intervened, preventing coffeeneuring challenge completion: “I have no excuse except that I got distracted by Halloween stuff.”
Others fell ill: “I had a cold, so can I claim coughy-nuering points?”
The last weekend of October arrived and the time for official coffeeneuring was at an end. Who remained?
