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 Eight April 2, 2011

The cold weather continues for the foreseable next several days. Sigh. However shopping for bikes, bike accessories, bike toys and trinkets remains a pastime to be enjoyed. From one of the bike forums I follow I wanted to share another story of inspiraton of older adults bike riding well into their later years. The link below carries a story of Octavio Orduño who at 103 continues to ride. What an amazing accomplishment! The link also has a video.
