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!

Mother's Day Celebration

Short ride today just to stretch the legs and because it was just so beautiful out I couldn't help myself. 3 miles of pedaling around town.

Most of the day was devoted to preperations for a family cook out. I have two sisters who were 16 and 15 respectively when I was born and they have always been like a pair of extra mothers to me. I had a family dinner today to honor them. Full house today with sisters and brother in law, nieces and nephews and their kids too. I am basking in the contented glow of being in the bosom of my family, having fun with them and enjoying each others company.

This is contentment.
