Coffeeneuring 2018: Ride 7

Between my current head cold and our region’s first wave of chilly November weather blowing in, today seemed like a pretty good day to not do anything fun, adventurous, or that involved leaving the couch. But you know what? I don’t believe in putting life on hold just because it’s not comfortable at the moment.…

Coffeeneuring 2018: Ride 6

Today’s coffeeneuring adventure was more low-key than the rest. I had some routine work to do, so why not go for a quick bike ride and get the work done with some coffee at Midtown? That’s one of my favorite kinds of adventures, one that integrates neatly into your regular life. Too often, we slog…

Coffeeneuring 2018: Ride 5

The Hallowtide triduum continues, and so does coffeeneuring. I stopped downtown this morning to visit a place I hadn’t been for this challenge yet, Fountain City Coffee.

Coffeeneuring 2018: Ride 2

I was almost going to just take a quick ride down the street to get my coffee, but the day was too beautiful for that. Instead, I pedaled my way out of the neighborhood for a trip down Columbus’ Dragonfly Trail. Even though this city is still overstuffed with car traffic, it was heartening to…

Coffeeneuring 2018: Ride 1

It’s that time of year! For my first entry into the Coffeeneuring Challenge, I took a leisurely bike ride around Columbus, GA’s historic Park District. This neighborhood always looks beautiful, but the change of seasons and Halloween decorations really bring out its character. I stopped by the St. Elmo house and shot some quick photos of…
