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 100 and 101

November 3, 2010 cold, drizzly and cloudy with temps in the low 40's. No bike riding

November 4, 2010 for all intents and purposes biking season is over for 2010 in Michigan, at least for me it is. I imagine one or maybe two days warm enough to hop on for a ride before the snow sets in but it's time to turn to another form of exercise to help out my knee and arthritis in general.

I'm researching swimming options at our local school and also a therapy complex nearby that has an underwater treadmill, both options will be no to low impact physical activity that will blend quite nicely with limiting stress on the joints.

There''ll be an occasional post now and again but not much till spring time again when I can get back on my wheels!

Week #15 35.5 miles. Good daily average
