December 03, 2017

Instagram Post: It's been a good but long weekend already. Today I got back at it for a quick spin on the trail. It's December, not many days left in the year to hit that 4000 mile goal. Looking forward to the traditional MNM Christmas light adventure in a couple weeks as well. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Standard, no frills

Instagram Post: Back to reality this Monday. Work was not great at all today but before that, I did get some #biking in. Took out the #mountainbike for 15 miles around the lake with a little off reading adventure mixed in. Good ride, great weather. Until the next adventure #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #PushTo4000Miles

The Ride: Early morning rides are the best rides

Instagram Post: The #PushTo4000Miles continued before work this morning as I did 25 miles around the hometown. A good ride, I felt decent but not great. It was a good ride for mental health as there is a lot going on at work right now. #Biking relaxes me. I enjoy it very much. Trying to get these miles in. Day off tomorrow, weather permitting, it'll be an epic ride day. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: A familiar but challenging ride. Wasn't feeling my best

December 06, 2017

Instagram Post: It was cold and windy this morning. I still went #biking Probably would have done more but the wind definitely effected me today. No new neighborhoods but neighborhoods I haven't gone through in a while so it was fun. #YouVsYou #FitDontQuit #FightForIt #PushTo4000Miles

The Ride: Cold, Windy, Miserable. Not ideal conditions. It took a few milles just to get going. In the end a good ride but the wind was brutal.

Instagram Post: It was a #swimming night. It was a #10000steps kinda day. It was a good doctor visit day. This Swimming/Biking thing is paying off! #YouVsYou #FitDontQuit #FightForIt

 

 

 

 

December 10, 2017

Instagram Post: Early bird gets the worm, or in this case frost bite. It was cold out there today. I got my #snowmagedon #biking adventure in. It was difficult at times. The trail was not in good shape. I also did not notice a patch of black ice (in the third picture) until after I was on the ground and slid about 15 feet away from the bike. Besides that, it wasn't a bad ride. The streets were better than the trail so I rode past the lake and hit the neighborhood. Fresh snow would have been better to ride in but I'll take what I can get. The #PushTo4000Miles continued and we are getting close. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Black ice is a bitch. Never hurt myself this bad before. Bruised hip and elbow. Not a good day on the bike

Instagram Post: It's been about a week since the black ice incident. I'm just about healed. Between that, the accident, starting in a new store and mostly the unbearable wind this past week I've really not been inspired to go #biking at all. Today (prior to the next batch of snow coming later today) I did get up and went out. This picture doesn't do the "S" hill justice. It's steep, it was so problematic for me when I began this biking journey over 2 years ago. Today I used it to re motivate me to finish this goal I set for myself. About 15 miles today (maybe more after it snows) and it was cold and windy. I need only 77 miles to hit 4000 for the year and I have 2 weeks to do it. I need to take advantage of days off. It was hard going out today, but I did go. That's the first step. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #PushTo4000Miles

The Ride: Besides the above, I was sore and miserable but I was out there.

December 16, 2017

Instagram Post: I got in some mileage this morning before work. Knocked off about a third of the mileage left in the #PushTo4000Miles Cold, windy and slick at times but I stayed to main roads and that seemed to work out just fine. Saw some Christmas decorations today, I still need to get in my Midnight madness Christmas light ride. I'm thinking Wednesday. Until then my friends #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #biking

The Ride: More of the same, decorations, wind, peddling. Good ride.

Instagram Post: #MNM #Biking adventure! Well not Midnight but it was dark. It is also my annual "Xmas house decoration extravaganza light show biking spectacular!" (Yep that's what I'm calling it) Great houses out there but more importantly another huge chunk done on this final push. I should hit my goal by Saturday. It was cold out there but not windy. I felt great. Maybe it's the spirit of Christmas ??or maybe I was just thrilled to ride again. Either way it was a hell of a lot of fun. Until tomorrow #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #safety1st

The Ride: I look forward to this ride. Its casual, fun and nostalgic. Really enjoy the night biking thing and of course Christmas so this whole event is great.

Instagram Post: A big ride today on my day off. 27 miles and I went all over. Saw some different Christmas lawn inflatable decorations today. I was slow and steady, also stopping for a few errands. I haven't calculated the total mileage on the year yet today, but I know I'm close to 4000 miles. One more ride will get me there. Hopefully tomorrow morning before work. Until then .... #biking #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #PushTo4000Miles

The Ride: More of the same, decorations, wind, peddling. Good ride.

December 21, 2017

Instagram Post: I DID IT!! I have now officially rode my bike 4000 miles in 2017! I realized after my last post I was only 3 miles short so I went back out. This year I biked 7 organized events, competed in my 1st mountain bike race, completed my 2nd #SeaGullCentury, Biked in 5 states, shattered my original goal of 3000 miles, had plenty of triumphs and a few tragedies along the way. Most importantly, I still love #biking. Equally as important is all the support from everyone of you that has liked, commented, private messaged etc. You don't realize the power of your support. I thank you. I'm going to enjoy this accomplishment for a while, then think about 2018 and what I can accomplish on a bike. Again, thanks everyone.

The Ride: Quick lap through the first section of Blackwood Estates. I needed just under 3 miles to reach 4000 for the year. That was the goal. I did it. Such a feeling of accomplishment.
