Coffeeneuring 2023
« on: 12 October, 2023, 12:18:00 pm »
Anyone doing the 2023 coffeeneuring challenge?

https://chasingmailboxes.com/2023/09/24/coffeeneuring-challenge-2023-lucky-13/

I know most folks on here are all about the longer rides, but this is just an excuse for CAEK, I reckon.

Yep, got my first one in earlier this week when the weather was good.  :thumbsup:

Was hoping to tick another off this weekend, whilst the weather looks like it's improving - I've got a bit of illness which is likely to get in the way!
Regards,

Joergen

Trying to. As with most years, I expect circumstances to get in the way and to fail to complete the full set.

I managed my first one yesterday, stopping for a coffee I had brought with me on my way home from dropping off Mr Bait's car for repair. I have been somewhat delayed by the apocalyptic flooding.

Just done my first ride for this year's challenge. A simple 3km to get some breakfast.

Failed miserably. I'm blaming a poorly timed bout of coronavirus but apathy might have been the main problem.

As with every year, I failed to complete the coffeeneuring challenge but only by one or two days this time. Such is life, in the words of that great Aussie philosopher.

I finished it in the first 4 weeks, probably could've added more than 7 if I'd've cared enough

Used it as motivation to get me out on the bike after failing to complete TPRno3 which worked nicely

Completely failed, as the 2/week limit plus the fact nearly all the roads I would normally ride on were shut due to storm damage from Babet meant there wasn't time to make up the number.

Next year!

got it done again, I think my 9th or 10th. A mixture of very short rides (a couple sub 10km) and some OK rides. Mostly on rental bikes as I was travelling quite a bit for work (including weekends). It acted as motivation to get me out!
