Do you love to drink coffee and ride bikes? Join us in the coffeeneuring challenge! Coffeeneuring is a nationwide fun and non competitive way to explore your community by bike while enjoying delicious hot drinks! Ride your bike 7 times to 7 coffee shops in 7 weeks in October and November, that’s it! A few more details are described in the link above. Coffeeneuring Seattle has lots of possibilities with our large number of coffee shops as a decent amount of bike trails.
Here’s a starting point for some ideas of places to Coffeeneuring around the Seattle area that we have enjoyed!
Explore your Neighborhood
Coffeeneuring only requires a two mile round trip ride, so try out that favorite neighborhood spot but bike there instead!
Bring your own hot drink to your favorite city park
To coffeeeneur you can bring your favorite hot drink along and enjoy it in one of Seattle’s extremely scenic city parks. Some with lots of biking opportunity include Seward Park, Alki Beach and Golden Gardens.
Ride Around Lake Union
You can ride around Lake Union in either direction on the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop. Lots of opportunity for hot drinks around Fremont and South Lake Union in particular. I recommend starting from the UW light rail station for a car free outing!
Ride from Downtown to Ballard and UW
Starting downtown, you can do a beautiful ride along the waterfront through Myrtle Edwards Park and then along the trail through Magnolia and down across the locks and get your coffee somewhere in Ballard or Fremont, then ride over to the UW light rail station. To get to the waterfront, you can take the light rail to Westlake and then either ride down to the waterfront or take the elevator down through the market (depending on your comfort level with riding downtown).
