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 43

September 5, 2010 What a glorious day! Abundant sunshine, cool temps, warm sunshine and diminishing winds. Fine day for a first trip to the Lakelands Trail. Rode from Hamburg to Pinckney, got on the trail in downtown Hamburg on Hamburg Rd. and rode 5 miles of paved trail to Farley Road and a about a half mile of unpaved, on the return trip I checked out a bit of the unpaved section at the end of the trail also for an 11 mile trip with another cool down mile at home for an even 12 mile ride. Photos are of the trail, Zukey Lake, a bridge over the Huron River and a tunnel at Pettysville under M-36.
