LONG BEACH ISLAND, N.J. — Keeping with bicycling theme of earlier this week, here’s a post about how I clinched Long Beach Island.

38.1946 miles
5054.99 calories burned

I suppose if I could have been specific and only ridden on the Boulevard, but with dedicated bike lanes in Beach Haven proper and easy riding along Beach and Atlantic avenues in Long Beach Township, it would have been unnecessarily pedantic.

This is the second longest ride I’ve done and frankly, because it was done on a barrier island several miles out to see, it was pretty easy. I barely felt it in my legs; I’m skeptical of the calories burned really being over 5000. That’s okay though and it’s just a reminder of why I’ve largely given up on documenting bike rides — I used to do it over on the tumblr. The satisfaction of doing it is enough. In this case though, I felt like noting it and also mentioning a helpful bike store on Long Beach Island.

I recommend A.J.’s in Beach Haven for your bike repair or rental needs. I had great service there and will use them again if I’m on LBI.
