Unfortunately my foot/heel is still painful so I had to come up with a backup plan QUICK to continue with 30 days of biking. I didn’t want to do the same thing as the last video and just have other people riding around in place of me – so inspired by the fact that my mom dresses as the Easter Bunny every year and this picture I took of my of my nephew:
30 days of biking starts TOMORROW!! Since I am not supposed to be cycling right now due to my heel/foot injury a few family and friends have volunteered to take some days for me. I will be doing the bicycle exercise and also posting once of my favorite cycling videos everyday over on my facebook and twitter pages so feel free to check them out! Hopefully my doctor says I can get back to cycling at my follow up appointment next friday so JoJo and I can check out some cool bike trails!
Have you ever wanted to try to bike commute to work, but didn’t know what to bring with you? Here’s a list of everything I bring with me when I ride my bike to work! ( I did forget to mention my wallet- LOL!) Give it a try sometime!
I’m sure I am not the first person to think this up, but I needed a cue sheet holder for my bike and 1) didn’t feel like paying $10 when I figured I could make one and 2) didn’t feel like waiting for it to be mailed to me. I decided to see if I could make my own with things I have around the house.
On Oct 23, 2016 I had the privilege of riding in the Bike MS: NYC which was a 30 mile route around Manhattan. NYC is another area I haven’t been to in YEARS and I was disappointed I didn’t get to do as much sight seeing as I wanted, but that just means another trip back – preferably when it’s a bit warmer!
I forgot to post this! OOPS!!
My final day in DC! Kevin drove down the night before and I asked him to bring his bike so we could cycle around DC before he took me home. After going out to eat at Panera (by the way, the staff at the Panera near the Rosslyn Metro station were so friendly!) we grabbed our bikes, hopped on the Mt Vernon Trail and cycled to DC. I showed Kevin all the sights I saw a few days before since he hadn’t been to DC in a while – we really lucked out because there happened to be some sort of walk going on and a TON of streets were closed so we didn’t have to worry about cars at all. Then we got on the Rock Creek Park Trail and headed up to the zoo. The trail was lovely although it was very crowded along most of it – it was a Saturday after all.
Friday I had plans to meet with Jill from the Summit Chicks (Raina was out of town) – we had plans to meet for lunch to catch up and walk over to the highest point of Washington DC, which is in Fort Reno Park. I decided to keep my bike in my hotel room and take the metro. I haven’t ridden the metro since I was little on vacation in DC with my parents so I was a bit worried about making it on time, but it turns out that google maps makes it really easy. You just type in where you are and where you want to go and there are options for drive, bike, walk and public transportation – it was awesome. I typed in the time I wanted to be there and it gave me the time I should leave, the metro line I wanted to hop on, how many stops until my connecting stop, the connecting stop line – everything was really spelled out – piece of cake. I would HIGHLY recommend using that if you are somewhere and need directions!
