Today I just wanted to ride to get coffee or breakfast. I don’t ask for much! I just wanted to go on a short bike ride and get coffee!
Wayne isn’t a coffee person so I convinced him by throwing in the word breakfast! It worked! We decided on Le Pain Quotidien that opened recently in Culver City. I had already done a hill repeat workout early in the morning and so a short ride was perfect. I got to practice riding on the streets again in morning traffic!
It was a good ride for me–just 3.2 miles total but I just want to keep practicing as much as I can, when I can. Most importantly, it got me thinking! What if I just ride to different coffee shops around town? Bikes and coffee–it’s a thing. Cyclists love coffee. I love coffee. I can make cycling more fun for me, not that it isn’t already but visiting a coffee shop would be a reward! We all like rewards! So the idea was brewing in my mind (pun intended!) and I thought this would be the perfect way to combine cross training and something I’m passionate about–coffee!
“There are pastries at coffee shops!” Wayne was hooked on the idea, too! Well, not really but he would ride for pastries! It’s going to be a great summer filled with cycling adventures, coffee and other yummy treats!
Your path, your pace, Tam
