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 40

September 1, 2010 Beautiful morning, got out for a 4 mile ride before the heat sets in. Nice way to start off a work day.

A slight stiffness when I first start off a ride is being persistent. I believe it is related to fluid retention in this humidity and will avoid salty foods and see if this alleviates it.

After work ride with Lisa up and down the lake for another 8 miles gives me an even 12 for the day. Icing is in store for me!
