Coffeeneuring Challenge: the patch

My 2015 Coffeeneuring patch arrived in today's mail.

For more about Coffeeneuring, check out Mary G's blog.

And  although the Coffeeneuring Challenge is over until next fall, there's no reason to stop riding and enjoying coffee. Grab some friends and make a morning of it! Stop at a coffee shop, or bring a little stove and make your own on the trail. Go somewhere pretty, take pictures and write up a ride report.
Since my riding is less ambitious for now, I've made it a point to go out for a ride -- even a very short one -- whenever the weather and my energy permit.
Today was a COLD but gorgeous day to ride around the neighborhood. An east wind kept things brisk, and hot coffee in my thermal cup made it nicer.

(Below: my Klean Kanteen coffee cup. Fits in a water bottle cage, keeps coffee hot for quite awhile (usually 2-3 hours) and keeps paper cups outta the landfill. I found this one on the Broadway Bridge several years ago, banged up but still functional. It's lost some more paint since then but works great.
If you're short on cash, eBay sometimes has these used for less than half of new. They basically last kind of forever and are worth every penny.)

A very happy 2016 to you all. Go ride your bike!
