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 25

August 17, 2010 Nice cool morning for a ride to work, took an evening ride with my niece who just bought a bike. We toured the Adler and Eagle Garden subdivision then back north on Main to Dee's Place and home. We had about a 7 mile ride and add 2 in for my work commute and I have 9 in for the day! Feeling pretty strong and my confidence level is really growing along with endurance. Starts and stops are getting much smoother. If I've grown this confident in 3 weeks I imagine that another couple of weeks will have me feeling like a real rider.

My flexibility has increased greatly, my balance in general has a lot of improvement and my energy level is kicked up several notches. Biking is not just good - it's fun!
