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 44

September 6, 2010 Hudson Mills Metropark ride today. That is one beautiful park. Nice paved trails, there is an interior loop of 3 miles (did that one twice) and a 4 mile exterior loop. Got in a little exploring too at the end of the trail on the north side of the river and made it an even 12 mile ride. Both of the loops have a significant portion of the trail that is riverside with bridges, picnic areas and varied wooded terrain. Photos are of kayakers and fly-fishermen enjoying the Huron River which winds through the park and one of me hiding under some big pines during a rain shower.
