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!

The day started off with a 5 am wake up and hustle out the door to the Balloon Fest bike ride with my little nephew Andrew, first stop on the 10 mile loop was a fly in at the balloon fest.  On the Howell High School grounds there is a giant tartget on the ground and ballonists vie to see who can drop a bean bag closest to the bulls-eye.  We watched this balloon land one smack on center!  After the ride and breakfast we headed over my friend Lisa's and Andrew and her son Max had some fun on the water with water skiing and tubing.  Later the boys spent and hour hunting baby frogs and landed about 40-50 of them.  Capped the day off with a pool party at my sister's house.  Summertime fun with a capital "F"!
