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 36

August 28, 2010 Ok, I've worked up to longer rides. Took an adventure ride with my niece today to Independance Lake, roughly an 11.5 mile ride round trip. There is a rough gravel road for about 1 mile of the ride and a much smoother packed down gravel road for another mile then it's back to paved trails in the park. The park has several ameneties in it and it looks to be a nice place to spend an afternoon. We looped the trails, visited the sites and home again. Loaded up on some fruit from the Farmer's Market for a nice snack at the lake.
