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!

This just had to come home with me

From our local florist, it came without the polka dot planter which my sister bought and said I just had to have it.  I planted with English thyme.  Outdoor Adirondack chairs are whimsical, I couldn't make up my mind last year which was the prettiest color so I bought one of each. So I have a rainbow of yellow, liliac, green and hot pink with the appropriate color hanging floral baskets over each, of course!
