I was intrigued when I heard about the coffeeneuring challenge — a weekend cycling endeavor for those who like bicycling and coffee that is organized by Chasing Mailboxes, who set forth the rules here. It basically involves riding your bike to 7 coffee shops over the course of 7 weekends, October 3 – November 15, 2015. This is its fifth year, but for me, it is the first.
I knew I had to do it, and besides, how hard could it be? Plus, with the suggestion to throw in a theme within the theme, well, I just adore themes! I turned to the Google to start researching coffee shops worth trying in the Los Angeles area. A few lists came up, and I loved that I could explore a new artisanal coffee shop each weekend in a different part of the Los Angeles area.
Since one of the requirements is to report on each ride, and linking to a blog is an acceptable means of reporting, I also decided this would also help me finally get rolling with blogging. I sort of tried to start blogging a couple of times before, but never got past the first post. Perhaps with these “homework” assignments and a deadline, I could make myself take it beyond a single post. Of course, I’m starting the blog during the fourth week, so there will be some retroactive posting. Lame or not, here I go!
