    Default CR's #FS Coffeeride #73

    Another double dipping coffee ride. I was hoping for a little more snow to go with the return of winter overnight, but just got a dusting. On the way out I stopped at the Back & Snack on Deuil la Barre Straße in Nieder-Eschbach. It might have been a small town McDonalds in the US with all the seniors stopping in for coffee and socializing. Then I rode up through bad Homburg hoping to stop at Espressobar Ernesto. The sign in the window said thry were open, but when I got to the door there was a note saying they wouldn't open until 14:00 on 3/17. I looped around to Gotisches Haus, of course its coffee shop wasn't open (museum opens at 14:00). I settled for a second coffee at the Franz Ruppel Bäckerei & Konditorei in the Oberursel pedestrian zone.

    Default CR's #FS Coffeeride #74

    We had a surprise accumulation of snow overnight, only a dusting had been forecast and we ended up with three to four inches. I was happy for a chance to ride in the snow and pulled the Pugsley out and headed to the Saalbau Bornheim for the ADFC RadReiseMesse and picked up a backpack load of touring brochures and radweg maps. Afterwards I wandered around the Bornheim neighborhood (having forgotten to restart my GPS), stopped for lunch and coffee at the Café Wacker in Nordend West, and looped around Grüneburg and Nidda Parks. Eventually I stopped at the Hinnerbäcker in Dornbusch just before they closed at 3 pm (the one up the street in Eschersheim was already closed) and got a second coffee, but I have already used this chain.

    I made my final #FS2018coffeeride to the Kröger's Brötchen on Grüneburgweg. Coffee and a Schokocroissant before heading to the Grüneburg and Nidda Parks for some packed snow/ice/slush/muddy trails for my dirtybiker miles.

    And the winner is ...

    consularrider aka Chris Randall with 77 coffee rides but more than that many coffee shops visited. That plus 1,909 miles. Chapeau!

    A close second was David J with 74 coffee rides (not sure how many of those included multiple coffee stops) done with an impressive 626 miles. Maybe I need to do a coffee shops per mile pointless prize next year!

    Since the HH has been re-scheduled for April 9th, I will award the prize then. I know Chris is out of the country, so if he's not back then I'll get him his prize whenever he's here next.

    Thanks for create the game chuxtr. It goes well with doughneuring as well as beerneuring since sometimes you need some fuel to get home.

    Congrats to consularrider! He is a coffee riding machine.

    It was a fun challenge trying to visit as many coffee places in the DC area and keeping up with consularrider. There are an amazing no of coffee places in the area. I tried to hit them in the morning on the way to work and although I started running out of places near me there were many other places in other neighborhoods waiting to be visited.

    Yes it would be fun to do a coffee ride per mile pointless prize next year. I am on the spectrum of staying well hydrated or caffeinated but it would be interesting to see the other spectrum as to who can go the furthest before having to refuel.
