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 49

September 11, 2010 A day of rememberance for our Nation, our lost citizens and those who serve in public safety, we've mourned and grieved but one thing for sure, we will never forget!

Made a seat adjustment last night and I love the new feel. It's amazing a small thing can make such a big improvement in comfort. My saddle had a slight upwards angle to it and it was very uncomfortable but I didn't realize it until I made it evenly horizonal. What an amazing difference a slight modification made. Why didn't I do this sooner?

Back to Hudson Mills today with a friend, 8 miles on the trails there and 3 miles to and fro from her home and a jaunt to the Farmers Market gives a nice total today of 11 miles. Off to the Smoking Jazz fest in downtown Brighton.
