coffeeneuring #7

Planet Smoothie kept popping up on my list when I looked for smoothie places. I kept ignoring it because the route there is not great. There are bike lanes but it is on a busy and fast highway.
I decided to get it done in case something else pops up later in the week.
The weather was good, cool and overcast. The traffic was heavy but didn’t bother me.
There wasn’t much to see as far as the scenery is concerned. This is a commercial zone, I only stopped for traffic lights.

Planet smoothie is in a shopping center but along a side road. I saw no bike rack near by and no where to lock my bike. There were no others around and took a chance and didn’t lock my bike. 
I have never been to a Planet Smoothie. I saw a poster for a Orange Push-Up Smoothie and it sounded good. I ordered a small. It was really good and did taste like an orange push-up.
I sat outside and finished my smoothie.

The ride home was fine. I chose a different route which lacks a bike lane and at times, a shoulder. The view is a bit better but mostly houses and empty fields.

I enjoyed coffeeneuring this year. I might enjoy it more if I had someone to ride with me. I am not sure why the cost of smoothies surprised me. I paid cash for most of them instead of using my debit card so I really paid attention when the dollars leave my hand. I didn’t have any extra costs like last year so overall, this year was much cheaper.
