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 84

October 17, 2010 13.5 miles today on another new trail. Rode from South Lyon to Milford on the Huron Valley Rail Trail. Flat and had some cool intersection crossings that talked to you.

Made it a bit over half way as the trail goes from SL to Wixom. Temps had dropped from when I left home until I started the ride and I was not dressed for a longer ride, started off at 4 pm and as the sun got lower it got chillier so I opted out of the last 3 miles and turned around at just under 7 out of 10. Also found a leg off the trail that takes you to Kensington. That's going to make one nice ride to build up to if you combine both loops.
