Below, find the third and final Coffeeneuring report. (Links to Part 1 and Part 2.)
Ride #6: Nov. 3
The Coffee Bar, 1201 S St., N.W., Washington, D.C.
I’d biked past this place in Shaw several times and seen people sitting out in the sun, so wanted to make sure we made it over. And, frankly, after such an eventful Coffeeneuring ride on Saturday, something close and easy sounded really good.
coffeeneuring, part 2: the big chair ride

Yesterday, I wrote about my October Coffeeneuring rides. Today we get the
four first ride I did in November:
Ride #5: Nov. 2
H Street Coffee House & Café, 1359 H St., N.E., Washington, D.C.
This was my epic ride of the event. Following a stop at the Meet Market craft fair, I had decided I was going to head across the river to Anacostia’s sole coffeehouse, Big Chair Coffee. To get there, I rode down to the Tidal Basin,
past first the marina,
then the fishmarket, and then Fort McNair. I pedaled through Buzzard Point and over the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge. It’s worth noting that the center of the bridge is a drawbridge and it gives your stomach butterflies to pause there, even if the clouds and the view of Alexandria are magnificent.
The view of the east side of the Anacostia
is far superior to that of the west.
