    One more to go! Let me know which was your favorite after you've visited them all.

    Default And then there were none

    #FS2019coffeeride side bet #15, Philz Coffee on Adams Mill Rd, NW. I was a little disappointed they only did pour overs so I could not stay consistent with a cortado. Coffee was still good.

    Out of the 15, I liked The Royal on Florida Ave, NW in Ladroit Park the best. Interesting building, good coffee, good pastry, good staff. I enjoyed all of my coffees.

    Good to see you last night. I knew you would win the side bet. Just disappointed in you that you didn't do it all in one ride!

    I passed by all 15 coffee shops in one ride today. Was somewhat tempted to have more coffee but better judgement ruled the day and I ended up getting only one coffee at Commonwealth Joe which I've never been to before. Cute place. Couldn't help but notice their rocket fuel. Instead of sampling 15 coffee shops in one ride you could just get 4 of these for the equivalent amount of caffeine...

    Will do this again this year. This is different than Coffeecatting, but could overlap with it to some degree. I've tweaked the rules a little from last year:

    1. The object is to visit as many DIFFERENT LOCAL, i.e., DMV, 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. I know the Starbucks ban is arbitrary, but my prize so my rules.

    3. "Swamp" coffee, e.g., 7-Eleven, Wawa, etc., is OK but subject to the same conditions as in #2 above.

    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 #FS2019coffeeride in your Strava ride title and include the name of the place you visited, e.g., #FS2019coffeeride Java Shack. NOTE: Posting of coffee rides is totally honor system, i.e., I'm assuming you're following the rules. 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 the coffee shops per coffee ride miles ridden.

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

    9. FINALLY, both consularrider and bikedavid are welcome to play but aren't eligible to win this year. Sorry guys! But you won prizes last year and I'd like to give someone else a chance to win.

    Please let me know if you have any questions. Get your caffeine game on!
    Question about local coffee shops that have multiple locations: are they subject to Rule 2 or would Northside FC and Northside Arlington count as two separate places?

    Rule #2 applies. One location for a chain ... national, regional, or local.
