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 Five Monday March 21, 2011

4.3 mi. today for another first week riding jaunt, different route but similar distance and time. It feels great to be outside again and it is so invigorating compared to indoor riding, plus you have all the other elements to deal with like variable terrain, wind and so forth. Spring is a grand time!

The indoor riding helped alot with flexibility and there has been a wee bit of pain in outdoor riding from dealing with small hills and their demands are different on your knees than indoor stationary flat riding but it'll all come into place with more riding and when those muscles gain their strength back.
