Questions to be answered:
3) What bike are you using for as your coffeeneuring bike?
My Surly Cross Check commuter, equipped with a Co-Pilot child seat. We are outgrowing this seat. The big guy no longer fits in it while the little guy will be out of it next year.
BTW Rob Vandermark, president of Seven and Honey and co-owner of Ride Studio Cafe needed to grab something out of those drawers behind where my bike turned out to be inconveniently located and graciously moved it to get what he needed and put it back into place. It's always nice to see Rob here.
4) Where did you choose to coffeeneur on this trip?
Ride Studio Cafe in Lexington. If you don't know it already, it's a great shop with very nice people both on the coffee side and bike side. The make great espresso and pour overs and sell very beautiful bikes. It's my favorite coffee shop and I'd be there a lot more if it were closer to home.
It's obviously bike friendly, being part bike shop. They have indoor bike parking and have worked with the town the have a two parking stall mini parklet and bike parking outside their shop.

7) Anything else to share?
I did get in trouble for getting home too late. Fortunately we all survived.
Some things I saw on the bike trail ...
A high school boy insisting on passing an older couple on a bridge, forcing me to the side so he didn't hit us head on. But he is immortal so no problem.
A man with a young girl on a child seat, pushing his son on his own bike, with training wheels. I saw him on the way out of town and back in and either he was in a hurry or this was how he was training his son to ride. I still remember a crash I witnessed a decade ago, a couple of hundred feet from where I last saw this family. In that case, dad pushed his daughter to the ground while pushing her on her own bike with training wheels. He went down as well. This can never end well so don't try it at home.
An older child getting pushed by her mom, with mom screaming, "PEDAL, PEDAL!"
Overall, there were a lot of sane cyclists on the path today.
