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 95

October 29, 2010 5 laps at Independance Lake for a 10 mile ride. Cool but not real cold. It felt good to be out again after a few days off for the weather. My knee was a bit stiff for the first 1/2 mile and I felt out of it and didn't catch a rhythm until the second lap, finished strong for 5 laps and never had to walk up a single hill. Nice. The woods are thining out quite a bit so the sceanery is changing from week to week. Running short on daylight too, it's pretty dark by 6:45

Glad the weekend is here and with it the opportunity for some longer rides, the weather looks to be cooperative too with temps around 60's. Hope it's not too windy.
