Instagram Post: First ride of July was completed a little while ago. It was HOT! 100 degrees with humidity making it felt like 113. Now I love riding my bike, but let’s be honest, this was stupid and not fun at all. Bring on the thunder storm! It needs to cool off a bit. #biking #youvsyou #fightforit #fitdontquit #cycling

The Ride: Hot Uncomfortable

Instagram Post: It was hot today but not as bad as yesterday. I love my #biking on holidays collages so I had to get out and ride. Just went through the adjacent neighborhoods. Slow and steady today. Plenty of fluids. #hydration #cycling #youvsyou #fightforit #4thofjuly

Instagram Post: It’s been a long day. Hit the trail for a little ride then spent a couple hours cleaning the house. Tired! At least we had a break in the heat which actually made it enjoyable on the bike today. #youvsyou #fightforit #cycling #biking

Instagram Post: ?? And for a while I believed that I was Superman but I misunderstood ??( for those that know, know). The lawn needed a much needed mowing and after that a quick 12 mile ride on the trail. It was hot but bearable. Smooth ride, one of the better rides since vacation. Looking forward to to Sunday. #biking #cycling #fightforit #youvsyou #superman

Instagram Post: Today was a good day. Send some positivity please, big things may happen soon. Thanks. I rode the trail to the literal end of the line. For a change, I took pictures at every cross street in the trail from the return trip point of view. I also added a few familiar pictures you all know. I did the trail 2x plus a little extra. I am feeling better mentally today than I have in a long time. Beautiful Day! #youvsyou #fightforit #cycling #biking

The Ride: Good ride, took time documenting the trail. Felt good.

Instagram Post: Happy #fridaythe13th everybody! I love a holiday #biking collage! I rode the trail and a lot of Hilltop today. Last ride before the #flyerscharityclassic on Sunday (picked up my rider pack today) After some positive comments the other today, I’m giving you the opposite perspective of the cross streets on the trail. This time from the point of view of heading away from my house. Enjoy!! #cycling #biking #fightforit #youvsyou

Instagram Post: It was a great and fun day today. Ever since I biked through #camdenyards in Baltimore two years ago, I’ve wanted to bike through the #PhiladelphiaSportsComplex Today I was able to do just that as I #biked in the #flyerscharityclassic The actual route took us through the #navyyard #tastykake #fdrpark and more. I also went around the stadiums for some extra fun. I tried to capture as much as I could as far as stadiums, statues and atmosphere. The #superbowl52 banner at the Linc is a nice touch. It was a great experience and I look forward to doing it again next year. #wellsfargocenter #Flyers #Sixers #lincolnfinancialfield #Eagles #citizensbankpark #Phillies #xfinitylive #biking #fightforit #youvsyou #flyerscharityclassic

The Ride: A really good experience and fun event. It allowed my to bike places that I always wanted to but never had access to. Very pleased with my performance

Instagram Post: Well here’s something I Haven’t done in a while (and it felt like I hadn’t done this in a while.) The heat & humidity today along with doing the @kidztri3 with my nephew @44griffman in about a month, made me realize I should hit the pool for some laps. It was good to go #swimming again. Until next time #youvsyou #fightforit #ymca

Instagram Post: A couple trips around Grenloch and the lake this afternoon. Needed a good head clearing kinda ride. Rough day, good ride. #biking #cycling #fightforit #youvsyou

 

 

July 19, 2018

Instagram Post: It was a little over a year ago I biked out to my friends house and today I did it again. The mileage isn’t an issue but anyone familiar with the area will tell you the elevation change on Center/Brakeneck Rd is no joke. Consistent hills with elevation changing about 400 feet is quite a workout. I was took a lap around #thompsonfamilypark for old times sake. In addition, I did the old lawn care routine today as well. A rich full workout kinda day #cycling #biking #youvsyou #fightforit

The Ride: Always a challenging ride. A good ride though and a chance to get back to the Thompson Family Park

July 21, 2018

Instagram Post: There was this magnificent sky earlier this morning. Unfortunately though it also means the rain is coming. Today was a fun #biking day. I went out with my nephew @44griffman and we rode a new trail for us the #SchuylkillCanalTowpath It was mostly a gravel road but nice scenery with the canal on one side and the river on the other. This ended at the #PennsylvaniaWaterTrail but that’s for another day. We did ride part of the #SchuylkillRiverTrail before the rain started. We have the @kidztri3 marathon in a few weeks so this was “training” In addition to this, I went around a couple neighborhoods prior to picking my nephew up for a little warm up. Still in awe of that sky this morning. It’s already been a quality Saturday #youvsyou #fightforit #cycling #biking

The Ride: Fun day with the nephew exploring new trails.

Instagram Post: I have to be honest, I’m a little tired of this weather recently. We have been having crazy sun showers that last a few minutes followed by beautiful weather followed by crazy wind gusts followed by high humidity. Repeat the process continuously for three days now. I went for a ride just to get out and ride. Yes I got wet, blown around and dehydrated from the humidity. It was not fun but as I always say, any day I can physically ride a bike is a good day. I don’t take this for granted. #biking #cycling #fightforit #youvsyou #rain

The Ride: Crazy wind, rain, humidity ... sums it up

Instagram Post: The weather actually cooperated today so #biking we go! Two trips on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail It was humid and honestly I didn’t feel great but at least I was able to bike today. Oh and the one minor inconvenience was this down tree over by the baseball fields. Hey @glotwp just FYI if you didn’t already know. #cycling #fightforit #youvsyou

The Ride: A down tree, humid & I felt miserable. Bad ride

Instagram Post: A quick loop around the lake and then had to mow the yard. The dark skies were all around me and luckily it just started to rain as I finished mowing the grass. #SummerTimeFun #ThunderStorms #biking #cycling #LawnCare #fighting #youvsyou

Instagram Post: It was a gorgeous day today. I haven’t felt this good on a ride in a long time (tired now though). I just kept telling myself, one more neighborhood, one more neighborhood. Next thing I realized, I biked through a lot of Suburbia South Jersey and then out of know where, corn ?? fields as far as the I could see. I had a very Field of Dreams moment right there. Great ride, fun day. Get out there and do something! #biking #cycling #fightforit #youvsyou

The Ride: I felt great, biked a lot of neighborhoods and felt like I had more to offer. It was a very good feeling. The road bike is a good piece of equipment.

Instagram Post: (1) Starting the day with a #biking adventure on the #atlanticcityboardwalk Trying to live my best life. #youvsyou #cycling (2) See what happens when you get up before 5am? You get in 54 miles of #biking before noon! 25 miles on the #atlanticcityboardwalk (a lot more on this later). I was only a few miles away from the #atlanticcountybikeway and figured I could beat the rain I biked that 15 miles. I then met a guy who told me about the #pleasantvilletosommerspointbikepath which was only a few miles from where I was so I said what the hell, let’s bang out that trails 13 miles while I’m here. The rain held up. I’m tired, sweaty, dirty and hungry (I guess it’s the 2300 calories I burned (I definitely could afford it)) hahaha. I was only going to bike the boardwalk but it turned into a great day and bonus thing .... I still have all day left! #ineededthis #youvsyou #fightforit #igotupwiththeroosters #cycling #hashtag #istillhavetodrivehome

The Ride: What a rewarding day. 2 new trails. Riding the boardwalk was a blast. Really fun. Did an old trail and a new trail. This was exactly what I needed.
