Instagram Post: It’s been a few days since I’ve posted. Today I had a plan, on the way to said plan I changed my mind and did completely different neighborhoods. I then went and did my original plan. It was humid today, a good sweat kinda day. There is also some pretty places around here if you just open your eyes and look. I also found a memorial that I never knew was there before. Overall this was a good ride. #youvsyou #cycling #biking #fightforit

The Ride: Started out rough. Thought about quitting but eventually found my groove. I was able to do my goal plus more and thats always a win.

Instagram Post: Today’s #biking adventure took me through #philadelphia. Met up with my buddy for this annual ride and it was fun, but very hot. Hit 100 degrees on our ride. Since we did the historic areas last time and I just did the sports complex, we explored a different part of the city. We started by #lovepark then headed down the #benjaminfranklinparkway towards the #philadelphiamuseumofart so of course obligatory #rockystatue and #artmuseumsteps picture. Then we headed out on #westriverdrive over to the #philadelpiazoo From here we went through #Drexel & #Penn I stopped by #FranklinField and of course the #Palestra. A great place to see a college basketball game. It was open so we went in and there was some type of volleyball tournament going on. We then went past #jeffersonuniversityhospital and made our way back into center city going past landmarks such as #readingterminalmarket and the #philadelphiaconventioncenter It was a fun ride. It’s very different riding down city streets, I really enjoy it. It’s good to mix it up sometimes. Nice catching up with my buddy as well. Until next time #fightforit #youvsyou #cycling

The Ride: A fun day exploring Philly. I was able to go to many new places on my bike and visit some iconic areas of the city. It was a great day on the bike.

Instagram Post: I don’t know if I’m sweating because it’s 100 degrees outside or if the combined bike ride / lawn care was a good workout? I’m going with a little bit of both. To hot on the bike, I only did a couple laps on the trail. Grass was overdue to be cut so that had to happen. Overall I actually feel pretty good though. I see a cold shower in my immediate future. #biking #fightforit #youvsyou #cycling #mowingthelawn

The Ride: Started with the lawn then jumped on the trail. Hot, Easy ride no real issues.

Instagram Post: This was one of those strange days where I wasn’t more than a mile from my house and any point but managed to get in 20 miles of #biking. I rode every piece of pavement (and dirt in some cases) I could find. Started by saying hi to some friends up at #mariospizza then decided to bike around my old elementary school. That led to the baseball fields, etc, etc. A good ride, a different ride but everyday day on a bike is a good day! #youvsyou #fightforit #cycling #gloucestertownship #blackwood #pizza

The Ride: The post says it all. I hate Railroad Crossings because it forces you to do multiple hills in order to bike through the neighborhoods. At least you get to go down them as well.

Instagram Post: I continued today where I left off yesterday. Now about 2 miles from home and still got in 20 miles. Mostly neighborhoods, nothing to exciting to see. For those that know the area, my ride pretty much covered Blenheim. Until tomorrow #youvsyou #fightforit #cycling #biking

The Ride: A good ride. This one consisted of the next mile up the road. Fun trip.

Instagram Post: After all that rain the past couple days, the lawn needed some maintenance. After all that rain the past couple days, I needed to bike. First work, then play. I took the mountain bike out for 1) something different & 2) experience has taught me, the trail generally has puddles and wetness for a day or two after heavy rains. I now need a nap. #biking #cycling #mountainbike #fightforit #youvsyou

The Ride: Up and down the trail a couple times on the mpountain bike is always a good ride. Nice to change things up now and then.

Instagram Post: Tomorrow I will be competing in the @kidztri3 family triathlon with my nephew. This should be hysterical. Today I did a small ride just to stay loose. Well it was 100 degrees outside so my 10 miles felt like 50! I also had the s*%t scared out of my by a deer and that wasn’t even the worst encounter with an animal I had today. All in a day’s adventure I suppose. Until tomorrow #biking #cycling #youvsyou #fightforit #hotishot #deer

The Ride: Very hot. A little tune up before the triathlon tomorrow. I wish I felt more confident. Today wasn't the best day.

Instagram Post: WE DID IT! Completed the @kidztri3 family triathlon! I survived the running. Nice sense of accomplishment, now let’s not do that again. Fun day hanging with the nephew doing something different. Still accomplishing “firsts” and it feels good. #youvsyou #biking #cycling #swimming #running #nephew

The Ride: It went exactly as I expected. Good swim (50m Olympic pool was different), Great bike. Terrible run. It was still rewarding as this is something I never thought i'd do. Here's to challenging yourself everyday. 50m swim, 1 mile bike, 1 mile run

Instagram Post: It’s been a few days since I posted. Honestly it’s been a rough stretch recently and I really haven’t felt motivated at all, depressed a lot and no desire to even go outside. Today I forced myself to ride my bike. I rode the trail 3x. I always feel better after a ride. Far from perfect but no longer feeling self pity. I guess the morale here is we all have ups and downs in life, but it’s important to get back up on the bike everyday. So let’s make a pack, try really try to make every tomorrow better than every today! Until tomorrow my friends #biking #cycling #youvsyou #baddaysbuildbetterdays

The Ride: Up and down the trail a couple times

Instagram Post: Deep thoughts yesterday but today I felt better both mentally and physically than I have in a week. I mixed it up and went over to the park for some #off-road #mountainbike activity and you know what? It was a nice change. Also cut the grass today so I spent quality time outside. #youvsyou #fightforit #biking #cycling

The Ride: Off Road is fun, haven't done it since the race in June. Harder workout with less mileage but very enjoyable

Instagram Post: Its like old times. I’ve been #biking 4 days in a row. While the summer is coming to an end, this is prime biking season. It’s still light later in the day, the temperature is perfect and this is the time when my long events take place. Did a few laps around the lake and even went up that dreaded “S” hill 3x just for fun. Now onto the rest of my lazy Sunday #youvsyou #fightforit #cycling

The Ride: Keeping it close, a few laps around the lake.

Instagram Post: I’ve seen a lot of things on my bike rides over the years. More encounters with deer than anything else. I’ve received that instant fear/shock many times. The only time I ever felt nervous was when I came upon three wild turkeys. Fun times ????. Today however was a first. Cows in a cornfield. Yep cows ?? in a cornfield! “HOLY COW”!! (Those who know, know). Anyway, first ride all week. It was hot, mid 90s, no wind but felt great being out there. Just trying to live me best life! #biking #cycling #baddaysbuildbetterdays #fightforit

The Ride: A Hot day but a good day. Went through a couple close neighborhoods. Nothing special excepts for the cows in the cornfields.
