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 41

September 3, 2010 Weather took a turn to the cool and very windy side and the humidity is g-o-n-e. Nice little 5 mile ride west on Barker to the Elementary and up to the Public Safety Building a warm up for a longer ride this weekend. Seed pods, blooms and grapes in the photos. Big seed pods!

Stubborn stiffness, on my last long ride I ended up getting caught up in errands instead of icing after the ride, not good. So I continue to find that initial pedaling is stiff. It goes away quickly however.
