Basically, the idea is you ride your bike to coffee shops on the weekends. You make a record of it and submit your reports to the Caffeine Queen (that would be Gypsybug).
Today, I did my first coffeeneuring ride. I intended to ride 15 miles to Georgetown's Bread and Circus coffee shop but an approaching cold front had me feeling like a quiche eater by mile 7 so I ducked into Perks in Old Town and knocked down an Americano and a massive chocolate chip cookie.
Perks is a bit of a zoo on Saturdays, but the coffee and cookie were tasty. So, mission accomplished. One down, six to go.
I rode another couple of miles up to the airport on the Mount Vernon Trail, then took the Anderson Trail over to Route 1 and made my way home through the streets of Old Town.
