@ Adrian Tritschler

In a week of riding along the Otago Central Rail Trail for our first “overseas family bike touring holiday” we drank at least one decent coffee a day that would qualify, for clarity, here’s the one I chose to be number seven of this year’s challenge. There was a coffee on day one, but I was too busy enjoying it to take a coffeeneuring photo. Day two of our mini bike tour was from Omakau to Wedderburn, with the morning tea stop coming early at Lauder.

A long one, and it would have been “an event” and disqualified according to the rules, but the event was cancelled so I rode the route anyway. In 2012 I first rode “The Slog”, a 160km fund-raising ride around Gippsland, starting and finishing at the Chairo Christian School just out of Pakenham. I’ve entered it and ridden every year since, except for 2013 where I entered but stayed home due to illness & bad weather.

Two rides in a row, two days apart, acceptably within the bounds of the rules. Unlike two days ago, today I left Lorne on the Great Ocean Road to the north-east, off towards Aireys Inlet and the Split Point Lighthouse. Out of town, a few kilometres of flat coast road then up Big Hill and into the steeper forest sections, winding and twisting. Up and over Cinema point and down to Eastern view and back to flat coastal road and eventually, to pass under the arch that marks the official start of the Great Ocean Road.

A long weekend down at Lorne, an afternoon out along the Great Ocean Road. I’m over half way through the coffeeneuring challenge for 2019. Road riding options from Lorne are somewhat limited; its either along the coast one way, towards Wye River, along the coast the other way to Aireys Inlet, or inland to Deans Marsh. Today it was fifty kilometres or so, south-west along the Great Ocean Road through Wye River and on to Kennet River, stop for a coffee at the Kafe Koala, then retrace my route back to Lorne.

My seventh – and last – ride of the eighth coffeeneuring challenge. The challenge ends on Sunday and there are things I must do on both days of the weekend, so I’d been wondering how I’d fit in the last ride. Earlier this week I’d been intending to go for a lunch ride on Thursday or Friday, similar to the shorter rides I did last year. Well it didn’t happen yesterday, so that left today.

My sixth ride of the eighth coffeeneuring challenge; tomorrow I’m off on “an event” which rules out my Saturday ride being counted as part of the challenge, so I snuck in a coffeeneuring coffee as my late lunch, going home early to work from home, and to do some secret chores. Circumstances dictated that I had to collect kid from school, so an early ride home and then work from home was called for.

My fifth ride of the eighth coffeeneuring challenge; each one different so far; back in Melbourne after last weekend away and a bit of exploration – urban and riverside – then a coffee on the way home. I’d had a hankering to go west and explore the Maribyrnong for a few weeks – partly after going over it on our Around the Bay ride, and partly after hearing a relation talk of his work on an engineering project out that way – it reminded me I rarely go out there and hadn’t seen much of that side of Melbourne for years.

My fourth ride of the eighth coffeeneuring challenge; each one different so far; equally good scenery to last week, but much better coffee. We were going away for a four day weekend due to the Melbourne festival of horse whipping, drunkenness and gambling … err, the Melbourne Cup … and taking the bikes with us. It takes up too much of the day if I try and ride the whole 200 km from Melbourne to Lorne so I’d decided to wait until somewhere around Freshwater Creek or Moriac – depending on the route we took – and ride the rest of the way from there.

My third ride of the eighth coffeeneuring challenge; far better weather than a week ago, but much worse coffee. A six thirty start, first time back on the AWOL after it spent the week at the LBS having the bottom bracket replaced. Last Saturday’s gritty rain ride was the last straw, although it had seemed OK on Sunday when we went out exploring, on Monday morning it was dead – the occasional noise under load was now a constant grinding.

My second ride of the eighth coffeeneuring challenge; a very different ride to a week ago and a lot fewer people about. I’d woken up around 4 am to the sound of heavy rain on the roof, not a good sign, but by the time I woke a second time at around 6:30 am the rain seemed to have stopped, although everything was very wet. I left under dull grey skies, temperature of 10.

Last year I stumbled on the semi-humorous “coffeeneuring” cycling challenge via the Chasing Mailboxes blog and had lots of fun as a result. The months have rolled around and here it is again, their eighth coffeeneuring challenge, my second time through. Seven rides to seven coffees in seven weeks… how hard can it be? A quick perusal of the rules… hmm, I think rule 9 would have tripped me up last year – one of my coffees was taken during The Slog and wouldn’t qualify this year, I’d better be more careful!

A final ride for the 2017 coffeeneuring challenge and I almost thought I wasn’t going to make it over the weekend and would have to bend the rules. I’d thought I’d be going out for a longer ride alone, as it was we had a shorter one with the family. So over the three weeks, the rides were short short long, short long, short short. Which in Morse code is “U-A-I”.

My efforts for the 2017 coffeeneuring challenge have been split into four small rides during my lunchbreak from work, and three longer rides. The first two little rides in were, almost coincidentally, to the south and then the east, so I made a conscious effort to go north for the third with the intention of then heading west for the fourth1. Today in the morning I’d attended a lab walk-through for SensiLab at Monash Univeristy Caulfield campus, so although today’s coffee destination is west of my normal workplace, I was heading east when I got there.

Fourteen years ago a church group – the 4Cs – decided to hold a fund-raising bike ride from where they were, in Pakenham on the eastern outskirts of Melbourne, to Sale, on the Gippsland coast. Thus the Slog to Sale was created. For fourteen years the ride has been held, I’m not sure when the name changed to The Slog and the route changed to a loop around the West Gippsland area, but that was what it was when I did my first one in 2012.

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

…The Site

I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.

Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
