Week three of the Coffeeneuring Challenge.  CLICK HERE for the Garmin Connect route

I called for an 8:30 meeting for anyone who wanted to ride the Shining Sea Bike Trail a 10.5 mile rail to trail conversion from Falmouth to Wood’s Hole on Cape Cod, MA.  When any of us in our group put the word out for a ride we have no idea how many would show.  It could be a solo ride or a critical mass. Today was closer to the latter.

Steve had never done this ride, which as most rail to trail MUPs, are pretty secluded.  I took him off the path a couple of times to ride along the waterfront. The scenery is so much better, to say the least.

When we arrived at Wood’s Hole, I explained to many in the group about the coffeeneuring challenge. We’ll see how many new faces show from Quincy and other Massachusetts bike clubs. Many or should I say all but two riders, piled into the Pie In The Sky cafe.  Steve and I went to Coffee Obsession on Water St. Both have very good coffee with good Baristas.

For the return ride to Falmouth, many of us left the MUP to ride along the ocean and visit the Nobska Point Lighthouse.
