Coffeeneuring is a autumn event that encourages randonneurs to relax and take short rides. It was created by Mary Gersemalina in 2011 in response to Seattle Randonneur Joe Platzner's comment.
A bunch of us have trained pretty hard for PBP. After PBP, I’m probably going to lobby RUSA for an official “Coffee Shop Run” medal. To earn it, you need to ride your bike slowly to a nearby coffee shop and enjoy a fine beverage.
Mary took up the challenge and created Coffeeneuring. Although I am not an active randonneur I am not barred from participating in the event.
