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 58

September 20, 2010 Road to work today and took a ride to Independance Lake after work, great autumn day for a ride, mild temps, blue skies - sweet!

Saw this rafter of turkeys along the way. I spotted them on the way there and noted where they were and decided that if I saw them again on the way back I'd stop and take pictures. They were still hanging around so you see them here. Some were on one side of the road and hurried across when they saw us coming. We stopped and a few were brave enough to scoot fast across the road, it was funny to watch them poke their necks out and make a run for it.

A friend of mine posted some photos of turkeys on their front lawn and they live right near where I saw these.

Wonder if it's legal to carry a bow and arrows on a bike? Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I bet that would make quite a photo.

Including my commute ride it rounds out to about 13 miles today.
