Always be #coffeeneuring

Always be #coffeeneuring!

Our fifth coffeeneuring adventure was riding to meet a friend at Seattle Center. Coffee was tiny for a hefty price but I hear that the “shop” rotates monthly so they may have better options another time.

  • Where: KEXP
  • When: 10/27/17
  • What you drank: cafe au lait
  • Observation: it was an amazingly beautiful fall day! Our way home was through South Lake Union at rush hour so we ended up on the sidewalk because people driving had taken it upon themselves to block the bike lane in places (“if I have to wait in traffic so do you”).
  • Theme: (SUPER) skeptical baby
  • Total mileage: 12 miles

 

Coffeeneuring number six was on a train! We drank coffee on our way to Portland!

  • Where: Amtrak Coast Starlight
  • When: 11/2/17
  • What you drank: home brewed coffee with milk
  • Observation: this train is so fun! We spent our whole trip in the observation car because windows are like baby tv. Plus there’s no wifi so watching the scenery kept me entertained as well.
  • Theme: skeptical baby
  • Total mileage: 1.1 miles of riding to the link station and then we took the bike on the light rail to the Amtrak station in Chinatown

 

For our last official event of the challenge we had coffee with a friend who just moved to Portland. What could be better?

  • Where: Spielman Bagels (SE Division)
  • When: 11/4/17
  • What you drank: cafe au lait
  • Observation: babe was conked out when we arrived so we wheeled the bikes onto the back patio. It was pretty chilly so we were the only ones outside. The owner (?) brought out chairs for us but in his desire to inspect the baby (he’ll be a first time grandpa in January) he woke him up. Oh well. No bike racks out front but there’s a nice deck in addition to the patio space.
  • Theme: skeptical baby
  • Total mileage: 9.5 miles or so total since this was a stop on our way to the train station

 

Because I totally lost count (and not because I have a coffee addiction) we continued on our coffeeneuring challenge for number 8!

  • Where: Roxy’s Diner
  • When: 11/10/17
  • What you drank: coffee with cream
  • Observation: the latke sandwich is amazing. Why don’t I put sour cream on my eggs normally?!
  • Theme: skeptical ( dragon) baby
  • Total mileage: 6.5 miles

 

On a very cold and wet and genuinely dreary day babe and I rode to Montlake to meet up with friends for a walk around the arboretum. But first, coffeeneuring number 9!

  • Where: Fuel – Montlake
  • When: 11/16/17
  • What you drank: chai tea latte
  • Observation: I forgot how much I loved chai tea lattes! Babe fell asleep on our ride over and despite making a detour wherein we rode downhill only to find our way blocked off for construction and had to ride back uphill (being passed by 2 women jogging), we were still quite early to meet our friends. So I rode many loops around and around and around until babe woke up and I determined it was time to get inside to warm up.
  • Theme: skeptical baby (not so skeptical anymore)
  • Total mileage: 4.2 miles not including our many laps near the arboretum


And for a super spontaneous extra coffeeneuring we stopped to grab a coffee on our way home from an errand!

  • Where: Seven Cafe
  • When: 11/19/17
  • What you drank: chai tea latte
  • Observation: a sleeping baby should not be woken! I left babe in the trailer to snooze while I ordered. It was easy to keep an eye on the trailer & then we sat outside (he was still sleeping🙌) on the cute chairs on the sidewalk.

  • Total mileage: 3 miles
