Coffee + Biking = Happiness
A topic that is as near and dear to my heart as biking, coffee. When I was living in my apartment, and the commute to work was 1 mile, I used to just put the travel mug in the water bottle cage. My commute to work now is 13 miles one way, and I was able to do it in just over an hour when I did a trial run a while back. I am really trying to get myself pumped up to try commuting to work as part of my LIVESTRONG training. I will definitely need coffee, and lots of it. My ride will start at 0500, that means I must be on the road at this time. As far as coffee goes, I’ve tried a lot of different beans. I used to order Gevalia’s, but decided the coffee really did not taste all that much better for the price I was paying. Dunkin Donuts coffee is good, but it must be ice coffee (yes, year round like the shorts). My new favorite is Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Hazelnut to be specific. The day does not officially start until I have coffee in hand. If it did, it would be ugly. Very ugly.
