Coffeeneuring 2013 - 2

I spent the weekend riding a 600K brevet out of Lumberton, NC.  More on that in another post soon.  When I returned from Lumberton after 384 miles and a long drive home I needed to stretch my legs.  It was a beautiful fall day.  Coffeeneuring seemed like exactly the answer.  So I headed out to the Big Bean on my fixie.  OOOPPPPPSSS!!  Can't coffeeneur to the same place twice, and I already hit the Big Bean for Coffeeneuring 2013-1.  (See coffeeneuring rule 11).  No matter, Sophis Crepes is right next door and they serve a mean hot chocolate with their crepes.  Phew... the ride has been saved.

My legs were stiff after the big miles over the weekend followed by many hours driving home.  5 miles to enjoy a crepe and a cup of hot chocolate was the perfect wind down after a great and exciting weekend.

Coffeeneuring 2013 - #1

Wow, beautiful, sunny, unseasonably warm Sunday morning to kick off Coffeeneuring 2013.

I rode to the Big Bean with my youngest son Erik.  I had a coffee and a muffin, Erik opted for OJ and muffin, we fetched this fall's order of 5 lbs of Pumpkin Spice Whole Bean coffee.  It's a fall favorite that my wife and I look forward to every year.  5lbs should last us until mid winter.  Then we'll pine away waiting for fall 2014 and getting by on merely good coffee.

After a zippy Seagull Century yesterday, this was the perfect recovery ride.
