I’ve been really trying to get some Coffeeneuring rides in this year. It looks like I’m starting to run out of time so I needed to get started.
This weekend I was camping down in Julian, which has some pretty good riding, so I packed a bike. Since I was camping I made some Trystero coffee in the morning.
Paul came up from San Diego to pedal with me. He’s a beast of a rider (see that Silver State 508 jersey) and to be honest I was pretty nervous. Thankfully he’s not training so he took it easy on me. Our plan was to do a loop and get some coffee along the way. We started be heading into town but it was packed. So we decided to do our ride and get coffee on the back end. Well, I’m out of shape and a slow climber these days so I blew our window. By the time we got back close to camp we ran out of time for a coffee stop. So I’m gonna count this one as a big fat #0, the intention was there, but we didn’t make it. It was still worth it.
This was one of the best days on the bike I’ve had in a really long time. We pedaled 25 miles and climbed just about 2300 feet. It would’ve been good to have some coffee at some point along the route, but it worked out just fine. Thanks for the great day Paul!
