Only YOU can make it better

Start UP your day with a bumping playlist of tunes or just simply one song on REPEAT

Today’s Eargasm has got me going all day ( granted it’s only 215PM) ! Pump up the volume for this Bumping Beat of The Day: Revolution by Diplo ! This remix will most def turn up your day.

Maybe the music to your ears isn’t enough to make your day better. If you happen to be in Ann Arbor walk on over to your nears Arbor Bike Stop – mine happens to be the Library Lane located on South 5th Street between East William & East Liberty.  You can slide in your credit card and for $6 you get to pop out a lovely blue bike to ride for the next 60 minutes. Ice Coffee & Arbor Bike I didn’t really have a plan of where I would go on my bike ride … just let the sunshine and day take me to where the road led.  On my journeys I got a bit thirsty and remembered the Jefferson Market & Cakery was near by.  The Jefferson Market was voted Best Local Cakery in Michigan more than 3 times. Today, April 15th happens to be their 8th birthday! To celebrate they were rolling out Free Slices of their famous cakes. Balloon Cake Although the pic of the cake is not featured you can find one hear on my @tR3NDEY instagram account.

Inside Jefferson MarketTo celebrate today was the official opening day of their re-model of the interior of the shop. The Jefferson Market is located on 609 West Jefferson Street in downtown Ann Arbor.

HOURS

Monday they are closed but are open : Tuesday – Thursday 8-2PM and Friday 8-5. The best time to go I think is for the weekend brunch : Saturday & Sunday 10-1 PM. Floors at Jefferson Market

I was totally feeling this authentic wood floor and had to take a snapshot.

Here is a photo of my lunch ” The Enlightenment ” on a Pretzel Roll & the Arbor Bike i Rode over. Lunch 4.15.15 It was totally fabulous and did provide me with some enlightenment that it is up to you to make your day better !

It was really fun to hop on a bike! I probably haven’t biked since my last bike share ride in Miami Beach. I love that I was able to get in a few miles walking this morning, a few miles biking this afternoon and later on will go to Yoga down the block.

Vibe On, Walk 10,000 steps, and eat things you love,

Bike Detroit

Image

Bikes have spiked my interest this week & I am hoping into my life permanently. I have stumbled upon Detroit Bikes – “We cut, cope, bend, weld, paint, assemble and package each bike in our 50,000 square-foot factory in west Detroit” 100% Detroit Made. I am obsessed with the Matte Black sleek look of the bike Detroit Bikes produces! Matte Black is such a hot trend right now all across the board whether its seen on a sports car, your nails or even sneakers !

A note from their website www.DetroitBikes.comOur mission is to encourage cycling by making an accessible, enjoyable bicycle while continuing Detroit’s legacy of quality manufacturing and design. Detroit Bikes are built in a city with manufacturing prowess and deep traditions of bicycle production, touring, recreational riding, commuting, and racing. We are located on Detroit’s west side at 13639 Elmira Street. In our 50,000 square-foot factory we have the capacity to produce 100 bicycles a day, marking the return of high-volume US frame manufacturing.

Honestly I am thinking about going downtown on Monday to make a purchase ! It is a mere $699 that is a good investment in not only Detroit but your HEALTH. Biking is one of the best lifestyle choices you can make for yourself.

  • burns mad amount of calories – A 135-pound woman pedaling 12 to 14 miles an hour blasts 488 calories in 60 minutes.
  • good for your muscles Riding a bike is great for toning and building your muscles, especially in the lower half of the body – your calves, your thighs, and your rear end. It’s also a great low-impact mode of exercise for those with joint conditions or injuries to the legs or hips, which might keep them from being active.
  • improved mental health – going for a lovely evening or afternoon ride will allow you to clear your mind and be mindful of the nature & world happening around you.
  • good for your coordination–  Moving both feet around in circles while steering with both your hands and your body’s own weight is good practice for your coordination skills.

There are many different groups who are striving for efforts for the future of Mobility –  Zagster is taking the bike share scene by storm with their innovative mentality of bikes as a luxury amenity. The bike share system is “free” as long as you are a team member or student of an organization that has chosen to select Zagster’s Bike Share System. They are creating a better way to bike! Of course Quicken Loans has jumped on board with giving their team members the opportunity to bike the town !

BIKING extends your lifespan

BIKING makes the world a better place

Twenty bicycles can be parked in the same space as one car. It takes around five percent of the materials and energy used to make a car to build a bike, and a bike produces zero pollution.
