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 33 and 34

August 25, 2010
No opportunity for a ride at all.

August 26, 2010
A couple of back and forth trips to work and a small errand during the work day gave me 5.5 miles for the day. Nice, especially with the really cool weather today, it was perfect for riding. On the last two riding days I was surprise to have a tiny bit of stiffness in my knee for the first few revolutions of the pedals. Humitidy? Salt intake? Will keep an eye on this.

Brings me to a grand total for Week Five of 22.5 Not what I was looking for but with two days of no riding that's not too bad.
