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!

Boats and Ballerinas

What a great weekend, the weather was summer like with high puffy clouds and warm temps and the lake was dotted with boats and brave early season swimmers. Yesterday was a volunteer day and no bike riding for me. But in the later afternoon I did go out with a friend for a spin in their brand new Master Craft ski boat. What a beaut! This boat was built for speed, I took the wheel and man did it feel good to open it up and tear up the lake. She's got all the bells and whistles, heated seats, boat heater, GPS, you name it and it's on it. The looks and appointments are gorgeous. Maybe I'm a wee bit partial but I believe that Master Crafts are the best ski boat ever built. Dawn's little Allison is one brave water baby, boy that water's stilly chilly!

Sunday afternoon was spent at a recital where my niece Lori and nephew Billy's little daughter made her opening debut as a ballerina. Gosh those little wee ones were so darn adorable on stage. It was a great show.

So after a busy and filled weekend I capped it off with a nice little bike ride 8.62 miles up one shore of the lake and down another. Hills that I struggled with before are getting easier.
