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 52

September 14, 2010 Short ride up the East shore of the Lake and a quick jaunt into downtown for an afterwork 4 mile ride tonight. Having made a slight seat adjustment I really need to learn how to raise the handlebars to compensate. The new angle of the saddle, while being very comfortable for my bottom, is putting additional stress on the elbows and shoulders. Funny how such a minor thing can cause so many other things to be affected.
