Today we had another weekly installment of our LA River coffee gang. Wait, we’re a gang now? YEP! Our numbers doubled since last week! It was pretty rad to see all the people show up today. Woody brought his son out in his trailer and Steven walked over! Bikes are fun, but not necessary.
I brought two stoves out this time to help speed things up, but we only had one grinder so that kept things slow. These are the growing pains I suppose of a growing group. I’m really looking forward to what next week will bring. Thanks to everyone for coming out again. Let’s keep it going!

I’ve been really trying to participate in Mary’s #Coffeeneuring challenge that started a couple weeks ago. Plans that were set in motion months ago have conspired to keep me off the bike on the weekend’s though, so I’ve had to make do with weekday outings.
For a few months a small group of us have been meeting along the LA River before work to enjoy a cup, talk about bikes and then pedal off on our own directions to work. It’s become something that I look forward to every week. I haven’t done the best job at taking pics, but here are a few from our meeting last week. We started out as just a couple people showing up with their coffee in a thermos and now we the group is growing and we are brewing coffee outside. This would count as #Coffeeneuring #2. Kjeld posted more photos here. Check them out!
Randonneuring is fun, but riding to coffee shops is fun to. In a couple weeks the next installment of Coffeneuring will begin. The idea is simple, ride somewhere and drink coffee. One on Saturday and one on Sunday. Get all the details here at ChasingMailboxes.com.
