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 79

October 11, 2010 probably one of the last real warm days of the fall season. Too nice to pass up without getting a ride in, daylight fading fast so I took the bike in the car to Independance Lake and did the loop three times for a total ride of 5.2 miles for the day. After the big ride yesterday and a longish one on Saturday I was amazed at how chipper my ride felt, into the second lap I was feeling like I was one with the wind, the path and all of outdoors and really felt strong and invincible.

The path has slightly rolling terrain with some minor inclines, today they didn't feel like anything.
