Following along with people’s coffeeneuring has really lifted my spirits after a crazy week. Thanks to all who are embracing the challenge and taking time to tweet and post their outings. Today’s is the first of many update posts, and this one exclusively features a roundup of tweets from the […]
Today is the day! After another year of waiting, the Coffeeneuring Challenge begins again. Where will you ride? How will you plan your weekends to complete all seven coffeeneuring trips?
Coffeeneuring is based on an idea from Joe Platzner, member of the Seattle Randonneurs. As he discussed life after the 2011 edition of Paris-Brest-Paris, he noted: A bunch of us have trained pretty hard for PBP. After PBP, I’m probably going to lobby RUSA for an official “Coffee Shop Run” […]
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.
Chasing Mailboxes readers, if you follow me on Twitter please kindly change your follow to @coffeeneur. I still consider myself a gypsybug at heart (my former Twitter handle), but for now I’m making that account inactive to be @coffeeneur. We’ll still use the #coffeeneuring hashtag for the upcoming Coffeeneuring Challenge. […]

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 […]
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 […]
A surprise entry from Charlie T. is today’s guest post. Charlie is a D.C. Randonneur who I had no idea was coffeeneuring until I read a Velo Orange blog post by VO staff member and randonneur Scott G. that featured one of their coffeeneuring outings. When I received Charlie’s “Coffeeneuring […]
Today’s Coffeeneuring Challenge edition is brought to us by Julie up in Silver Spring, Maryland. Julie and her husband visited various Maryland coffee destinations during the weeks of the challenge, and perfected the cyclist with bike in front of the coffee shop photo along the way. Julie completed all seven […]
While the beginning of this guest post may sound more like a medical diary than a coffeeneur tale, I assure you it is not. Joe Platzer, the Seattle randonneur behind the concept of coffeeneuring, provided me a convincing doctor’s note about why he was starting the challenge late, and I […]
As I continue to homologate results, I learn more about the appeal of the Coffeeneuring Challenge. Liz, today’s guest contributor, is a #BikeDC commuter who rides extensively during the week– 28 miles every day. She used the Coffeeneuring Challenge as an opportunity to work in more casual weekend riding. As a […]

Sara and her husband, Gary, are North Carolina randonneurs turned Maine residents (and coffeeneurs). Without further ado, here is their story, along with an extensive excuse well worthy of a Coffeeneuring Challenge Honorable […]
It’s a thrill to announce that we had our first Coffeeneuring Challenge participants from Delaware this year. Patti, a runner as well as cyclist, embarked on at least two of her coffeeneuring outings on the heels (ha ha!) of a trail run. Does that count as a brick workout? She […]
