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!

Wednesday April 13, 2011

Yesterday was a long work day and short bike ride 3.18 miles, didn't even break a sweat with the cooler weather. Short but sweet and since I was short on time I made the most of it by increasing the intensity level. Increased average MPH for the ride today by 15%. It's a fine line between pushing and overextending the stress on the knees. By focusing on making the most out of shifting gears at the right time keeps knees out of the danger zone.
