Integrating fitness [in the absence of personal transportation] and photography…

I am to take seasonal pictures of my home church–Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church, Murchison Road, Fayetteville, North Carolina.

I took pictures in December. Now, we want pictures with green. I want the dogwood trees in bloom and leaves on the other trees. Flowers, if any, with blossoms as well.

Anyway, without a vehicle, I needed to get there. For the distance and purpose, I chose to ride. I’ll likely make a few more to see when I plan to shoot. I think in 2-3 weeks.

This was a special trip on my single speed bike [Faye] to survey an upcoming photo shoot. This route was about traffic avoidance. It worked well getting there and less well riding home.

Yes, there are hills. I rode them on a single speed bike.

Fortunately, I’m able to keep leg strength and meet the challenge slight elevation gives. The route home has more hills–met those with a vengeance.

Regrettably, my phone locked up and I missed capturing the entire ride. Oh well…

…and I thought it was the one with the bunch on the left.

Not a lot of views, but the leader [@ 9] nonetheless.
