    chuxtr, rule clarification please.

    I was at the garage races last night, and Zeke's was down there selling coffee. It was open to the public and I paid for it. I'm assuming that this is allowed (if of course I have not already visited Zeke's). Is my reasoning correct?

    Your reasoning is sound and logical.

    Didn't realize this until now, but the contest rules seem to be missing an important word:
    7. The tiebreaker will be whoever has the coffee shops per coffee ride miles ridden.
    Fingers crossed for "least", because we all know riding a ton of miles is a Good Thing.

    Actually, the missing word is "most." Sorry to disappoint you.

    Coffee is more important than miles.

    Ok, that's what I figured. I'd like to express my dislike of the coffeeride per mile metric though. Shortening the length of a coffee ride is pretty arbitrary.

    For those who couldn't make HH last night and are just dying to know ...

    There was a tie for first place (112 coffee rides) between Josh A and Robin B. But the tiebreaker was most coffee shops per miles ridden so ...

    1 - Robin B, Team X Snow Patrol, 112, 792 miles = 0.14 coffee shops per mile
    2 - Josh A, Team 18 IceCycles, 112, 1324 miles = .08 coffee shops per mile

    Josh was there to get his prize: a Conte's coffee mug (courtesy of Team X captain Brian Crowe, who is the manger of the Conte's Old Town store), a Coffeeneuring bandana donated by my friend Mary Gersemelina (who organizes the Coffeeneuring Challenge https://chasingmailboxes.com/2018/09...st-intentions/), and a pair of socks courtesy of Irwin Cycling (I'm one of their ambassadors https://irwincycling.com/athletes/)

    Robin will hopefully be able to get her prize from me this weekend: a Conte's coffee mug plus a Conte's gift certificate!

    Congrats to both Robin and Josh!
