Coffeeneuring 2019: have fun this fall riding to local coffee shops

This fall, the Costa Mesa Alliance for Better Streets invites you to take advantage of our lovely weather to join us in a casual challenge to explore Costa Mesa by bike with the Coffeeneuring 2019 challenge.

Coffeeneuring is the brainchild of Chasing Mailboxes, who has a full post with all the details, including the (very casual) rules. The basic idea is:

  • over the course of 7’ish weeks,

  • ride your bike 7 different places,

  • at least 2 miles round-trip each time,

  • drink 7 cups of coffee (or similar), and

  • take 7 pictures as proof of your coffeeneuring.

Many of us here at CMABS will be participating in the challenge, and we wanted to share this event with the community. After all, what better way to celebrate fall than with a short ride to one of our many great local coffee (or tea, or hot chocolate) shops with a friend? Or even better, seven rides to seven different coffee shops?

And since we're all about better streets for everyone, not just people on bikes, we'd encourage you to walk, skate, or scoot the challenge if you want.

The challenge runs from Friday, October 11 through Monday, November 25, 2019; share your adventures with us here at CMABS: Tag us on social media, comment on this post, or send us celebratory e-mails. Tell us if you come across any great shops!

Some suggested tags are:






p.s. While we're not going to discourage anyone from drinking 7 cups of coffee on each trip (maybe you really need your coffee!), the goal of the challenge is to drink one cup per trip, for a total of 7 cups over 7 trips.
