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 96

October 30, 2010 9.7 miles at Kensington. Entered in through Island Lake State Park and explored the Huron Valley Rail Trail a wee bit.

Degunked and degreased the gears and chain today, relubed it and shifting was smooth and quiet and chain didn't hop off once. Knock on wood. New saddle is working out very well and much quieter than the other one. All in all it was a very silent ride except for the wind and that is a welcome sound in your ears. It was a beautiful sunny day for a ride with temps near 60.
