Adventures

Zach likes to travel and go on adventurous trips with Jennifer.   They've been to Europe twice and on several bicycle tours.   The blog Jennifer and Zach's Adventures tells all about these trips.

Today we could have gone cross-country skiing (more snow up at Mount Spokane!), but instead we decided to take our seventh “coffeeneuring” ride for this season (see the post on our first ride for more information), which means we completed the coffeeneuring challenge! It was another cold November day, and threatening to rain. So, we...

Today we took our sixth “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information). Our previous ride was almost two weeks ago: Zach went to his third board gaming convention of the year, and we also got our first good snow, so we’ve been cross-country skiing instead of cycling. But it got...

Yesterday we took our fifth “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information — also, the inventor of coffeeneuring just posted again on the subject). We decided to ride to the ScrumDiddilyUmptious Donuts, at 1201 Barker Road in Spokane Valley. That’s the donut shop that we attempted to visit in coffeeneuring...

Today we took our fourth “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information). We tried to go to a donut shop, but arrived about 10 minutes after it closed (didn’t check the hours, doh!). So, we circled around to a few doors down from where we went on our third ride...

Today we took our third “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information). We left after lunch. The temperature was in the low 50s, with partly cloudy skies. We got a few short sprinkles of rain, but it was quite pleasant riding. We took the long way to Liberty Lake, via...

Today we took our second “coffeeneuring” ride (see the post on our first ride for more information). It was kind of a blustery day, and we had some things to do this afternoon, so it was a short ride: 6.2 miles round trip to the Far Cry Cafe at E 24921 Trent Avenue near Newman...

A week or two ago, I came across a blog post with a “Coffeeneuring” challenge. Zach and I thought it would be fun, so yesterday we did our first coffeeneuring ride. What, you may ask, is coffeeneuring? To understand that, you need to know about “randonneuring”, which is the formalized sport of self-supported long-distance endurance...

We had a very busy summer this year — we didn’t go on any big trips, but we had quite a few small adventures. And we didn’t get around to blogging or posting any photos until now… Better late than never, I hope? Zach spent most of June on a road trip, which Jennifer didn’t...

We recently returned from the second of two spring trips. In April, we visited friends and relatives in Florida and Georgia, and in May, we visited friends in Costa Rica. It was great to see all the friends and relatives that we don’t see all that often (plus Zach’s new nephew Bo!). And we also...

After our Natchez Trace bicycling adventure, I decided I wanted to get a different bicycle. I’ve really enjoyed riding my bike (a Volae Century recumbent bike) for the past 5 years or so — it’s comfortable and rides well with or without a load on it. But it was difficult (to say the least!) to...
