Days are flying by faster than necessary, and so is the 2012 Coffeeneuring Challenge. I have three more entries to post, and that means only 1 more to go (and 2 more weekends – awesome!)
Without further ado, my second three controls:
Control #4: Peregrine Espresso
When: October 21, 2012
Miles: 6.09 miles
Factoid: Peregrine is the first coffee shop that I explored in DC, before I moved here. Therefore it has a place in my heart (and stomach). It helps that there is great coffee. Kate and I rode here, then tried to get Eastern Market produce (it was closed), then rode to another grocery purveyor to get what we needed for a delicious dinner. It was a nice early evening ride, I did some reading for class and Kate read about travel adventures. I was jealous.
Control #5: Red Truck Bakery
When: October 27, 2012
What: Drip Coffee, Sunflower Wheat Bread
Miles: 2.06 miles
Factoid: People like Red Truck. I had never heard of Red Truck! But I got there just at closing, poured myself a coffee, grabbed some bread for later eating and had a nice conversation with the proprietor. What an enjoyable place. It took me only 0.3 miles to get there, so I drank my coffee then explored Warrenton downtown (three times) to rack up enough miles. I will be back to sample more baked products! It was a sad day, but coffee made it happier.
Control #6: Pound
When: October 28, 2012
Where: 621 Pennsylvania Ave SE
What: Double Espresso, Breakfast Sandwich
Miles: 2.26 miles
Factoid: Crystal was there, and I was there, and I saw her new bike – but I didn’t see her. She didn’t see me. I guess we were doing a pretty good job of incognit-ing ourselves. The food was good, coffee acceptable as well. Then I went to Eastern Market and procured many vegetables for later consumption. Pound!
