Bicycle Crazy!

Well, as I mentioned in my last blog, I splurged a couple of months ago and purchased a bicycle.  BEST purchase I’ve made in a while!  I discovered a new portion of the Mountains to Sea trail not far from where I live and have been taking the bike there every week for a good long ride.  I’m not exactly sure of the total mileage, but I THINK to the end and back is maybe around 15 – 17 miles.  Again, I’m not 100% on that.  The main thing is that this is not only a fun way to exorcise, but it’s also a GREAT way to relieve stress, which I’ve had a lot of the past several months.  I wanted to share some pictures with you that I’ve taken the past couple of months of the bike and the trail, so here goes….

Loaded up and ready to go!


The branch that connects to the Mountains to Sea Trail….


The Mountains to Sea Trail – bridge that crosses the Neuse River.  This trail is awesome – paved the whole way with several bridges along the way.


As you can see – the views are great alongside the river.  Views like this the whole way down the Mountains to Sea portion of the trail.  Relaxing and peaceful.


So there ya have it!  Where I’ve been spending most of my free time over the weekends…part of the reason why it has taken me so long to get a new post up here.

The next post will be an update on how things are going for me in the minimalism world.  I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

Thanks for reading!
