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!

Flooding at Horseshoe Lake

The rain has caused me the minor inconvenience of not being able to bike ride for several day, this pales in comparison to persons who live in the Horseshoe Lake area and are flooded.  The rain that came down at the rate of 4" in a single day of a multiday storm has left the ground and our storm water system unable to handle the deluge.  News video of flooding.  My heart goes out to the people that are affected by this.  People in those neighborhoods are hanging together an looking out for one another and generally rising to the occasion and keeping their spirits up.
