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 46

September 8, 2010 Short 5 mile ride tonight, seemed like a ride to get the kinks out from the previous longer rides. Stamina and endurance have improved by leaps and bounds as this length of ride feels like a warm up ride and there is no feeling of being taxed by it whatsoever. I also seldom get winded from walks like I had been experiencing. My shortness of breath is waning during everyday tasks. It takes much more to get me winded now.
