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 77

October 9, 2010 Going for the distance today did the familiar section of the B2B trail and beyond... from Brandemere Park to St. Joseph's Hospital. No photos, I was on a mission, not one of speed but of endurance and distance. Had some big hills and rode up all but one and it was not the steepest. I stopped and took breathers and rests up the inclines but got back on and rode em out. It's a great feeling of accomplishment to reach the top of them and an even bigger thrill on the way back to ride down 'em!

Ride mileage for the day 18

Tomorrow's the big day of the Tour de Livingston, riding for the Howell Rotary to benefit the United Way.
