Sorry . . . this site is not allowed to mention Mike's friend John full name or a photo of his friend John on this site.
"Bike Mike World
(July 1, 2010) . . . Mike started a 2 page webpage back in July of 1995 on what use to be Prodigy Classic. Anyone remember Prodigy Classic? Then the webpage name changed. Was allowed to add stuff like photos, music and links as time gone on. The storage for members got bigger. Can add more photos and more pages to "Big Mike's Airwaves" webpages. Went from "Big Mike's Airwave" . . "Big Mike Jr's World" . . "Big Mike's World" . . then to the current website name and it stuck like glue ever since . . "Bike Mike World". The Website image also has changed.

"Bike Mike 21st Year Riding
2014 Coast the Coast"
March 24, 2014 . . . Words from Mike >> What a crazy winter we had? Wow! Frigid air and a lot of snow. Wish I had a bike trainer for my place. So I can train inside of my warm place.Will have to invest in one for the fall season. I did not train much. Because of the cold below 35 degrees and snow. Now I have to worry about getting flat tires. Because of the holes i nthe road and loose gravel and old salt on the side of the road.
Mike is worried about the shoulder of Route 35 south bound between Point Pleasant and Seaside Heights. A lot of riders is not using the shoulder. The riders mainly go to the left of the solid white line to avoid the bad bumpy, holey and loose gravel shoulder. Most cyclist stay on the smooth side of the white line for the reason.
Mike raised $4,200.00 for MS May of 2013.
For the first time ever. Mike recorded the bike tour with the Go Pro camera mounted to his vented helmet. It will include a interview with MaryBeth from the MS Society September 2012. This will need to be edited. Posted to youtube channel in the near future.
Mike also used the GoPro camera in the 2013 MS 170 Coast the Coast and the 2013 MS 100. All needs to be edited of course. He also plans to buy a body chest GoPro camera mount for the Coast the Coast.
It now May 8th... Getting down to the wire now. The MS Coast the Coast bike tour is next weekend. I am ready this time. No problem with my legs, body and bike. Should be a smooth ride all next weekend. All dependso n the weather like always.
The route has changed this year. Due to construction on Route 35 between Point Pleasant and Seaside Heights here in New Jersey. I am glad. Because I have been complaining about how bad the shoulder of Route 35 is in this area for years.
Mike is offically on Instagram. Can follow Mike's open public account at @mscyclekingnj . It mainly about MS bike tour he does with lots of photos.
You may now donate towards Bike Mike and help him raise a lot of money for Multiple Sclerosis. Which he been apart of sicne 1990. All donations goes directly to the New Jersey Multiple Sclerosis Society.
