Instagram Post: (1) This is starting to become an epidemic!! New game, how many different companies ice cream trucks will I see this summer. We are now at 3 and it’s not even Memorial Day Weekend yet #biking #cycling #anydayonabikeisagoodday #fightforit (2) Crazy good sky tonight. 30 miles of biking and I was never more than 1 mile from home. That’s a lot of my tax dollars going to roads so I may as well use them. For not being on a bike in a few days I felt pretty damn amazing! Maybe that’s the secret? Anyway, #anydayonabikeisagoodday #cycling #cyclinglife #biking #fightforit

The Ride: A long ride. I felt great. I had good energy, fresh legs and felt in shape enough to do this. Went on the epic tour de Blackwood and realized I had mileage left in the tank. In fact when I was done, I know I had more in me but I was fighting the light. Its was a great night on the bike.

The Ride: Tired legs. Slow moving but still a good ride. This was strictly trying to get mileage in kinda day.

Instagram Post: (1) Exploring legitimate new homes / neighborhoods on this biking adventure right now (2) A tough ride at times with the wind. A great leg workout as I forgot the one neighborhood I was need was on a complete incline. Multiple streets so to cover them all meant going around in squares with a lot of uphill work. I hadn’t biked through this area in a while so it was nice to change things up. The pictures show how drastically the weather changed on me as well. I beat the rain though! #cycling #cyclinglife #biking #fightforit

The Ride: I forgot how this one neighbourhood was a complete incline. That sucked. That said, it was a good leg workout as it forced me to go uphill a lot on this ride. Felt good at times but also felt spent of energy at other points. That's the struggle with hills.

Instagram Post: Tonight I took part in the #rideofsilence It’s a worldwide event honoring those who have lost their lives while doing a thing they love. It’s also to bring awareness about sharing the road. I always think of @robthomas_78 during this ride. A great friend, colleague and one of the best people I’ve ever known. I honor him every time I ride. Miss ya buddy! #biking #cycling #cyclinglife #fightforit

The Ride: Always emotional and always a good experience. This ride started at Malaga Lake Park and went for 10 miles in Franklin Township. It was mostly on Fries Mill Road and Delsea Drive. A positive experience to kick off bike season.

Instagram Post: #anydayonabikeisagoodday although this day was challenging. First I felt like crap. I actually have for a couple days. This ride didn’t make me feel any better. Second my brake (front) line frayed, the break pad rubbed the tire and the bike derailleur cable snapped. I always carry tools and for that 1% of the time I need them, I am so glad I have them. I fixed my bike. Then I had to race about two miles home because it started to rain. Did I mention I love riding my bike? I really do. Everyday is n adventure! At least I found a carnival (also know as the parking lot I did my bike repairs). I did bike through two new neighborhoods for me. And the one picture here that looks like a road to nowhere (is a road to nowhere) but back in the day was the site of the old skating rink in Gloucester Township #memories #biking #cycling #cyclinglife #fightforit

Instagram Post: It’s been a hell of a morning already. First best I’ve felt all week so that’s a plus. Second, up early and got in 10 miles on the bike (biked to the store to get weed whacker string). Third did the lawn maintenance which included edging and just for fun trimming some bushes. The lawn is usually about a mile of walking. Today it was two and a half. It may not quite be noon yet but you better believe “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere” time.

The Ride: straight aways, slow pace. blood pumping ride

Instagram Post: (1) Nice way to kick off the long holiday weekend! #cycling #anydayonabikeisagoodday #beach #youvsyou (2) We all have bad days, this is a reminder to me to work through them. Very grateful that I can have moments like this sprinkled throughout this thing called life. (3) Woke up at 5am. Drove to @longbeachislandnj and was on my bike by 7am. I biked the entire island and explored a bit. I was tired after 40 miles but pressed on to 50. Then stopped at @skipperdipper for a treat before returning home. Today was about breaking the normal routine. I was on a beach today so I guess I succeeded. It was a fun day #cycling #anydayonabikeisagoodday #lbi #youvsyou

The Ride: Fun day at LBI. Biked the island and explored. It was good to get out of my daily grind and do something different. Hardly any wind. A lot of people though. It was a great day. Looking forward to being back here in a couple of weeks.

Instagram Post: Today at work I joined a group called “walking for wellness”. So every Friday at lunchtime we walk around campus. Today was about 1.25 miles. Not only was it healthy but gave me a chance to interact with work people in a non work setting. Good times. I now just finished another walk. The one that goes along with mowing the lawn. Nobody to walk with this time although a few neighborhoods were out doing the same so maybe Friday nights can be “mowing for wellness” Now maybe a quick ride to end the month.
