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 Twelve

Day of rest yesterday from biking - working the election polls for a friend, Wednesday 8-4-10 took a 4.5 mile ride up down and all around Main St., East Shore and then some. What a humid night! The air was just thick with it. Had another little crash again and fell from the bike. This time on my right side. Oh well, comes with the territory.

Endurance is building up nicely and I am still icing after longer rides, flexibility is much improved and knee pain and stiffness after riding is lessening considerably. So long as I ice it down even for 10 minutes it really makes a difference.
