It's a new year and time once again to give a new look to this blog. New graphics and colors. Same bike writer!

This blog is created not only to track my own progress on my biking journey but it is intended to also assist others who have either osteo or rheumatoid arthritis or both like I do. I hope as you read about the progress I have made that it gives you inspiration and hope that you can overcome the dibilitating effects of these conditions.

If your doctor agrees that you should be capable of expanding your limits read on and don't be afraid, just listen to your body and give it challenges. Biking is a great non-impact form of exercise and greatly enhances flexibility and range of motion.

It's not a substitute for Doctor visits, taking your meds or otherwise getting off your health plan but it auguments what your Doctor does for you and can give you a better quality of life. Go for it!

Day Three

Day 3 7-25-10 Rode 1.1 mile to Post office an back, this is just to get the kinks out with no stress. My knee’s been aching with walking. First spin of the wheel and I didn’t think it would bend enough to go on, first half of the ride was painful and then it just loosened right up. Strength training in action. I want to keep the activity up but not overdo it, just listen to your body. *note, a speedometer would sure by handy instead of mapping out every ride. Will be repeating the route for the Concert by the Lake tonight. That'll get me 2.2 for the day.
