September 01, 2018

Instagram Post: Starting the month with a morning ride up and down the trail and around the lake. Not to hot which was nice. Not a lot of people either. The work is done, now to enjoy the holiday weekend #biking #cycling #fightforit #youvsyou

The Ride: Beginning the last quarter of the year, on pace to hit 3000 miles on the bike. Considering how the year began to get to 3000 would be a nice accomplishment. Today was cool and relaxing. Morning rides are always differnt mentally than evening rides they are more relaxing. Trying to focus and end the year on a high note.

Instagram Post: Wanted to get in a quick ride today before the heat set in, didn’t make it. It is hot out there and getting hotter. A few laps on the trail this #LaborDay was a great way to start the holiday #cycling #biking #youvsyou #fightforit

The Ride: HOT HOT HOT

Instagram Post: (1) When pop culture and your biking adventure collide! Hello Georgie!! #pennywise #it #hopeisurvive (2) On Sunday it will be in the 60s. Today when I started my ride (with the humidity) it felt like 104! My dumb ass bikes 31 miles (a sweaty mess but it felt good). No wild life encounters today, only a single red balloon and that is freaky enough for me. I needed this ride tonight. Mentally I feel much better. #youvsyou #biking #cycling #pennywise #it #hot??

The Ride: Hot but not bad. Did the trail and then felt inspired to do more. I explored Hilltop a bit and a few neighborhoods. Also came across a single red balloon. All in all a good ride

Instagram Post: Good ride today. I did the College/Park/Outlets circuit for the first time in a while. Although the temperature was high, it felt pretty good out there. I’ve personally had the best day I’ve had in a long time. Good day!! #youvsyou #biking #cycling

The Ride: Great weather. I love this curcuit, lots of mileage through parking lots and then a few trips around the park. Felt good the whole time.

Instagram Post: (1) I fully expect to get rained on at some point during this ride. Breaking out the #mountainbike just in case #cycling #youvsyou (2) I beat the rain! WaHoo!! Go Me! 2x on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandwellnesstrail today and boy or boy the extra weight and tire surface definitely makes for a tougher ride than the hybrid or road bike. It’s a better workout though. Posted the trail ends and the trail head. This trail round trip from my door is now 7 miles and growing. Finally, although I enjoy utilizing holidays in my posts, today is not a holiday but rather a Remembrance Day. #cycling #biking #youvsyou #fightforit

The Ride: Overcast, windy, decided to use the mountain bike because of the threat of rain. It made for a rough with more tire friction and a harder ride. All good though, the extra weight was a good workout.

Instagram Post: 1st Happy #BatmanDay (a holiday I can totally support) 2nd I biked past/through a carnival (not open, nobody around ... kinda creepy actually) 3rd the #biking 3 rides. 1) hit the trail, same old trail. 2) testing the create your own route on the garmin. Worked fine. Just a couple miles close to home. 3) I tried letting the garmin create a route for me. I plugged in the distance and the direction I wanted to go and BAM it calculated it for me. Not bad although it wanted to stick with main roads and well some of those roads I just wouldn’t bike on normally so it was a bit sketchy at times. It’s a good tool to definitely do something different though. In the end it was about 32 miles biking on this beautiful day today. #cycling #gloucestertownshiphealthandwellnesstrail #youvsyou

The Ride: The garmin created course was interesting in that it wants to stay on main roads which in some cases is dangerous. Its a good tool if you need to get somewhere but the create youe own course feature is by far a better option. That ride however took me through a carnival. It was very strange being there with nobody around. It felt deserted and creepy. At any rate, I do love going to new places so this ride had a lot of that.

Instagram Post: I can’t believe I still have to cut the grass. Well at least it looks good. Then I went out for a quick spin. Ran into another carnival on the ride. Getting ready for #seagullcentury in a couple weeks. Until next time #youvsyou #biking #cycling #fightforit

The Ride: Quick ride through Grenloch, just trying to keep the blood moving. Ran into another carnival, not as creepy but still .... Also had to cut the grass. Thankfully that season is almost over.

Instagram Post: Family fun Saturday has begun. First up a 10.25 mile ride with the nephew on the #perkiomentrail The picture doesn’t do the hill justice. Still one of the hardest hills to climb. Going down it though is a hell of a lot of fun!! Onto the next activity..... #youvsyou #cycling #biking #seagullcentury #fightforit

The Ride: Always fun to bike with the nephew. Hit the Perkiomen Trail today. Went the opposite way towards Schwenksville and decicded we would go 5 miles out. That took us down the hill which means we had to go back up it. The hill has always defeated me. Better luck next time.

Instagram Post: 7 days until #tourdepines 10 days until #seagullcentury so I need to squeeze in #Biking whenever I can. The sky was scary cool, but the wild turkey was scary scary!!! Out running a turkey? Yep they’re mean! As far as the ride, the trail and its neighborhoods as a bookend. A good ride (minus the turkey) #cycling #youvsyou #fightforit

The Ride: Good ride except for the turkey. No frills today.

Instagram Post: A good ride today. Temperature was perfect. Starting to see #Halloween decorations out there. Definitely starting to look like fall. Saw some deer on my journey as well. Finally captured some really cool sky pics on my ride. 5 days until #tourdepines 8 days until #seagullcentury #cycling #biking #youvsyou #fightforit

The Ride: Good ride on the trail then hit Blenheim and Timber Cove. A familiar ride, but one I haven't done in a while. Change is good. It keeps things fresh.

Plenty of pictures from my journey attached. Getting ready for #tourdepines & #seagullcentury this week! #fightforit #youvsyou #biking #cycling
