http://chasingmailboxes.com/2012/10/01/2nd-annual-coffeeneuring-challenge-7-shops-6-weekends/. For the official record, my regular “weekend” days are Sunday and Monday.
Due to both fitness and time constraints, I knew I had to keep this ride on the short side, so all told, I clocked a very modest 12.65 rather hilly miles. The route I chose should have yielded some pretty decent landscape photos; unfortunately, the rather dull day did not produce the spectacular shots that I had hoped for. Besides, in my opinion, the fall foliage around here is already past its peak. Even so, it was a beautiful day to be out! I chose “Dave’s Diner” to be my coffeeneuring rendezvous. It is not the first time I’ve stopped at this diner on a bike ride and I’m sure it won’t be my last. I ordered a small cup of pumpkin spice coffee and a homemade blueberry scone. The day was mild enough for me to sit outside and enjoy both. The coffee was the perfect drinkable temperature right out of the carafe (I don’t like my coffee so hot that I have to wait ten minutes for it to cool down so that I can drink it). And the scone – it was just sweet enough, with excellent blueberry flavor and a tender, slightly moist texture. Perfect. I can’t wait for next week!
