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 110

Saturday November 13, 2010 Returned to the "scene of the crime" and went for a short 6.7 mile ride today. Wanted to accomplish a few things

1) wanted to look over the area where I fell
2) didn't want to end my riding season on a short bad note (weather is supposed to turn wintery next week and this is in all likelihood my last ride of the year)
3) wanted to do an easy ride due to the tenderness from yesterday and a respritory cold that is gaining a foothold and this path is dead flat with no bumps or hills.
4) did not want to let fear gain a foothill, sorta like getting thrown from a horse and climbing back on.

Took it very easy and didn't watch my speed, avg MPH or whatever, just wanted a little fresh air, stretch out the kinks from yesterday and go at a very moderate pace. Mission accomplished.
