    Default #FS2018coffeeride Pointless Prize

    This is different than Coffeecatting, but could overlap with it to some degree. Here are the rules:

    1. The object is to visit as many DIFFERENT coffee places as possible (on your bike, of course!). But once you visit one place, that's it. A second visit doesn't count.

    2. Starbucks is verboten. But other chains, e.g., Peet's, Cosi, etc., are fair game. However once you visit one chain outlet, that's it. A visit to the same outlet but at a different location doesn't count.

    3. "Swamp" coffee, e.g., 7-Eleven, Wawa, etc., is OK but subject to the same conditions as in #2 above. If accordioneur does his Swamp Coffee pointless prize http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...809#post168809, there could be some overlap here.

    4. Bakeries, restaurants, and even fast food joints that serve coffee are also OK but subject to the same conditions as in #2 above.

    5. For your ride to count, use #FS2018coffeeride in your Strava ride title and include the name of the place you visited, e.g., #FS2018coffeeride Java Shack. Not required, but encouraged, is to also post pics on your Strava. And if you want to post your Strava ride link and pics on this thread for all to see, that would be fun too (but not required).

    6. The winner will be whoever has visited the most DIFFERENT coffee places.

    7. The tiebreaker will be whoever has visited the most coffee places on this venerated list:

    https://dc.eater.com/maps/best-coffee-shops-in-dc

    8. If needed, the second tie breaker will be whoever has visited the most "swamp coffee" places.

    Please let me know if you have any questions. Get your caffeine game on!

    Bumping this for all those who might start Freezing Saddles tomorrow with a #FS2018coffeeride. Remember that the hashtag in your Strava ride title is case sensitive for the ride to count. And please include the name of the coffee establishment in your ride title. Remember, only one visit to any particular coffee shop (or chain location) counts. So you Coffee Clubbers and Coffee Catters can count one of your meet-ups, but just one. Ride on and caffeinate!

    That is worth a tiebreaker point, if it comes to that.

    REMINDER ... Everyone is encouraged (but not required) to post pics of their coffee rides on this thread.

    Another suggestion (but not a requirement) ...

    If you have your Strava privacy set to "Request to Follow" it's not possible for me (or anyone else) to see your coffee ride on Strava. This is being done under an honor system so I have to assume that if you're hashtagging your ride that it's a legit ride per all the rules. And it's being counted on the #FS2018coffeeride leaderboard. But it would be kinda nice to know all the different coffee places that everyone is visiting. So, if you have time, please also post here about your ride (mostly where you went for coffee) and any pics. Thanx!

    #FS2018coffeeride #1 - Café Latte Macchiato, In der Römerstadt, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Stopped for a early afternoon cappuccino and their version of a butter croissant (more like a US crescent roll). The owner was from near Napoli, but had been in Germany for 15 years and was happy to practice his limited English with me.
