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 61

September 23, 2010 6 mile ride today but it was a rigorous one, hilly. I believe that I can catagorize the rides and routes into three broad catagories. Today would qualify as a Challenging ride.
  • Happy is an easy ride with flat terrain
  • A Good ride is one with rolling terrain, a few flat stretches and a couple of climbs that are significant
  • A Challenge ride is one with all rolling terrain and multiple steep climbs and almost no flats

Week 9 ends with a grand total of 38 miles. Not too bad with a couple of light ride days from the busy weekend of volunteering for special events.
