    I'm back in the USSA, we all know how unlucky we are boy, back in the US, back in the US, back in the USSA (with apologies to Paul Mccarthy and everyone else)!

    On my ride loop today I stopped at Hopscotch Coffee, not the one in Winchester who supplies Bikes & Coffee in Pucellville, but the one on the B-Line Trail in Bloomington, IN. Ejoyed a great cup of their Honduras Royal Reserve and a maple bacon doughnut.

    Two rides today, both involved coffee, but I'll call the first, Crumble, 50.a. This evening I went back out to join a friend and her friends at The Runcible Spoon just off campus in Bloomington, IN. That was 50.b. The coffee shop opened when I was an undergraduate at IU. The others were heading to the IU-OSU basketball game, but I stayed behind to have my qualifying beverage.

    But if Great Eskape Café(TM) is a real brick and mortar place that serves coffee, then it counts for the challenge.
    I was just rereading this. Does it have to be "brick and mortar" or do mobile coffee purveyors count? There are coffee food trucks (all over the place in Kyiv) a couple coffee buses (old London double deckers), and the Coffee-Bike in Frankfurt (which I have yet to see).

    Second clarification question, do places that serve Starbuck$, but are not Starbuck$ (ie Best Buns) count?

    It just keeps raining and raining and raining. I went out for this morning's ride during the noon hour and stopped at The Inkwell on the Square for coffee. I was too wet and they were too busy for me to sit inside so I stood by my bike under their overhang to enjoy my hot beverage.

    A "coffee truck" counts. Places like Best Buns that serve Starbucks are OK since they are not, by definition, Starbucks.

    Coffeeride #52 Sunday morning three stop ride, two coffees, two doughnuts, and a Krustada. The first stop was at the [URL="http://www.iheartsoma.com/"]Crosstown Soma[/URL for a coffee an raspberry crostada (basically a tart so not qualifying for this category of pointless prize). Second stop was Cresent Donuts on Adams next to Rosehill Cemetery for a chocolate frosted cake doughnut, but no coffee. Third stop was at Rainbow Bakery on W 4th St where I had coffee and a grapefruit-poppyseed vegan doughnut. Had the Phi Delt Little 500 team come up behind me on Covenanter as I was finishing my ride.

    Today's coffeeride had four stops where coffee flavored beverages were consumed. The first stop was at The Pourhouse Cafe on E Kirkwood where I got a larger than needed drip and drank it outside with my BBQ stromboli from Cafe Pizzeria across the street.

    Today's second coffeeride stop was at Bloomington Brewing Co on E 10th St in Crosstown where I had Java Porter as one of my six flight tastings (second from the right in the flight photo below left). I don't know if this would have qualified as a standalone coffeeride, but it was made with Brown County (IN) coffee.

    The third stop on today's coffeeride was at Needmore Coffee Roasters on Pete Ellis Dr. The name is a nice play on words because of course we always need more coffee, but there are two Needmore hamlets near Bloomington. One is east on SR45 near the Monroe-Brown County line. The other is south on Old SR37 just inside over the Monroe-Lawrence Co line where there is also a brewery, Salt Creek Brewery. I had their Cowles Bog blend as a drip.

    Today's fourth coffeeride stop was at the Village Pantry (the 7-11 of Indiana) at E 3rd St and Jordan Ave since I was getting desperate to find a doughnut. They had espresso sized cups for a free sample of their Perfect Harvest Coffee Co drip.
