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!

Feburary 4, 2011

Amazing story about a gentleman who will be 90 tomorrow and has logged over 120,000 miles on his bike. What an inspiration! You can read his story in the link below. More amazing yet is that I have the opprotunity to meet this person. Turns out that he lives in a senior residence nearby and my friend is the executive director there and she invited me to lunch with them.

This is going to be great.
