Midweek Ride, Coffeeneuring #4

By the Ipswich River

Since I got a "late" start to this year's Coffeeneuring Challange, I knew I'd need to double up one week in order to get in an extra coffee ride during the six week stretch. (Official rules allow (no more than) two rides per week counting towards the 7 ride goal. 

On Wednesday I headed out to Danvers for a mid-week ride and rode the multi-named rail trail to Boxford. At the end of the trail in Boxford (10ish miles), I turned around and headed back through Topsfield for a coffee stop at Zumi's Cafe on Main Street. What a great place! I sat outside at a cute table in the sun and enjoyed an iced latte and chewy chocolate chip cookie. Perfect!

Heading back to Danvers, I took a side cutoff over to the Wenham Canal, but saw an oddly placed "No Trespassing" sign near the corner. I'm not sure what that's all about. There were a few people walking by the canal, so the sign, and the odd placement of it, was a little confusing. 

The foliage is well past peak here in Massachusetts, but the colors are still gorgeous. Fall is fading fast.
