I took the bike and managed a couple of rides while we were there as well. Saturday morning I got up at O Dark Thirty to get in a quick ride before we met Taylor for a full day. I had also hoped to hit the local coffee shop right off campus and score my first of 7 Coffeeneuring Challenge rides. But the coffee shop doesn't open until 9 am on Saturday's!! So the coffeeneuring was a big "fail", but the ride was fun, though a little foggy and of course, dark. I was glad to stretch my legs after the long car ride the night before.
Sunday I opted out of the receiving line at the University President's house and went for a longer ride through the central NC country side. It was great. At that hour on Sunday there was NO traffic. The fog was burning off slowly and the heavy dew was shining on the fields, the grass, even the spider webs. When I got back to Elon, The Acorn coffee shop (116 North Williamson Avenue, Elon, North Carolina) was open for business and bustling. I enjoyed a Pumpkin Latte and a chicken salad sandwich. Coffeeneuring 1 / 7 complete. Then caught up with Tivy and Taylor for another great day on campus.
