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 64

September 26, 2010 8.5 miles today and it was a challenging ride. Did my best to climb that killer hill but only got 3/4 of the way up it. First attempt. Going to ride it until I conquer it! It's very different out riding on the road instead of around town or on bike paths. The roads from Whitmore Lake to Ann Arbor are pretty high speed and the one freeway overpass that gets you to the correct side of the expressway has no bike lane at all. It forces a person to bike it during low volume times or days. It would be suicide to try that during rush hour.

Watch out hill - here I come.
