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 26

August 18, 2010

Another ride with Lisa my niece, it's nice to ride with a pal and feels safer too. We cruised to Horseshoe Lake and down to 6 mile, back and up to the Marina for a smooth 6.5 mile ride. We would've done more exploring at Horseshoe if it wasn't getting near dark.

Feeling strong enough to go on longer rides and have not iced after a ride all week with no ill effects. It seems to grow even more enjoyable every day and I really look forward to the ride and the energy boost it gives me.
