Coffeneuring 2017 – Ride 7

Today we could have gone cross-country skiing (more snow up at Mount Spokane!), but instead we decided to take our seventh “coffeeneuring” ride for this season (see the post on our first ride for more information), which means we completed the coffeeneuring challenge! It was another cold November day, and threatening to rain. So, we…

Coffeeneuring 2017 – Ride 6

Today we took our sixth “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information). Our previous ride was almost two weeks ago: Zach went to his third board gaming convention of the year, and we also got our first good snow, so we’ve been cross-country skiing instead of cycling. But it got…

Coffeeneuring 2017 – Ride 5

Yesterday we took our fifth “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information — also, the inventor of coffeeneuring just posted again on the subject). We decided to ride to the ScrumDiddilyUmptious Donuts, at 1201 Barker Road in Spokane Valley. That’s the donut shop that we attempted to visit in coffeeneuring…

Coffeeneuring 2017 – Ride 4

Today we took our fourth “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information). We tried to go to a donut shop, but arrived about 10 minutes after it closed (didn’t check the hours, doh!). So, we circled around to a few doors down from where we went on our third ride…

Coffeeneuring 2017 – Ride 3

Today we took our third “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information). We left after lunch. The temperature was in the low 50s, with partly cloudy skies. We got a few short sprinkles of rain, but it was quite pleasant riding. We took the long way to Liberty Lake, via…

Coffeeneuring 2017 – Ride 2

Today we took our second “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information). It was kind of a blustery day, and we had some things to do this afternoon, so it was a short ride: 6.2 miles round trip to the Far Cry Cafe at E 24921 Trent Avenue near Newman…

Coffeeneuring 2017 – Ride 1

A week or two ago, I came across a blog post with a “Coffeeneuring” challenge. Zach and I thought it would be fun, so yesterday we did our first coffeeneuring ride. What, you may ask, is coffeeneuring? To understand that, you need to know about “randonneuring”, which is the formalized sport of self-supported long-distance endurance…

Cycling the Natchez Trace Part 2

When we wrote our last post, we had reached Kosciusko, Mississippi on our 3-week Nashville to New Orleans bike trip via the Natchez Trace Parkway. So… let’s see. From there, we continued riding south, and took two days to reach the area of Jackson, Mississippi. When we got to Ridgeland MS (a suburb of Jackson),…

Cycling the Natchez Trace Part 1

The past few years, Zach and Jennifer have taken a bike trip in the fall, and this year, Jennifer suggested that we bicycle the Natchez Trace Parkway. Part of the reason she suggested it was because it goes through Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee, which would get her down to missing just Alaska in her quest…

Summer 2016

We had a pretty busy summer. Nothing really seemed to qualify for its own “adventures” post, but we had a lot of fun and went to some beautiful places, so I thought I would post a photo gallery of some of our summer activities, which included: June – Adventure Cycling’s National Bicycle Travel Weekend –…

Minnesota cycling part 2: Cycling across the state

After our road trip to Minneapolis (see previous post), we set off on Tuesday, September 15 on our bicycles. The Adventure Cycling route we were following started in Stillwater, Minnesota, which is about 30 miles west of Minneapolis. The map we had provided a “spur” route from the Minneapolis airport to Stillwater, but we weren’t…
