Coffeeneuring Starts the Day off Right: Ride 3

With yet another busy weekend day ahead, I decided to get out early for a quick ride along the Hudson River to Kingston for a fresh cup of coffee at the Dulce Cafe located in the city's fashionable Rondout district. With two of my friends riding one of our area permanents today and the weather simply ideal, it is all I can do to keep my focus on work, which is where it is needed as I begin hosting a four-day reaccreditation visit at my school this afternoon. Thankfully, the Coffeeneuring Challenge gave me the push I needed to ride despite the busy schedule.

The foliage is in peak form today along this section of the river.

Tugs pushing barges upriver are a common sight.

Signs of fall are everywhere.

Ride 3 by the numbers: 18 miles, 1.25 hours, 1 cup of coffee.


  1. I ran across the Walkway over the Hudson (and back---2.5 miles) today and the foliage was absoltely gorgeous.

  2. @Martha - Isn't it a wonder? No matter how many years I spend in the Hudson Valley in autumn, I am somewhat surprised by the beauty. I finally have some time to commute by bike to work this week and can't wait to see the views from the Walkway.
