Coffeeneuring #1 - And, we're off!

Coffeeneuring 2014 began with a counter-clockwise Seattle Urban Loop, including riding past Green Lake, Golden Gardens, Magnolia, Seattle Center, Downtown, through the I-90 tunnel and return via Leschi.  37 miles, 2129 ft elevation gain.

Highlights of the bright fall day included a trip through Seattle Center, as well as my first use of the new 2nd Avenue bike infrastructure. SDOT has made 'improvements' to the Bike Lane of Death, still sort of gnarly and emotional, especially when passing the ghost bike memorializing where the cyclist lost her life.

The requisite coffee was obtained at the Leschi Starbucks, a frequent stop for many on their Sunday rides.  The double grande iced mocha hit the spot.
