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!

Around the lake - the short way? (Post edited)

Thursday pm I reversed my ride and rode clockwise around the lake taking a route I did last year but in reverse.  I had thought that I might be able to find even yet another way through without going through the "jungle" portion of the trail.  I could not find that passage last night, if it even exists.  The jungle portion consists of a mosquito infested and thick brush segement that you need to walk a bike through including lifting the bike then myself over some pretty tall deadfall more than chest high.  I made it and was very glad to get out into the sunshine and away from the buzzing bugs.

All in all with my commute, a couple of trips to the Farmer's Market and to a friends house to visit I had in a tad bit over 10 miles yesterday.

Post edited to add weekly total.
Today ended week #13 of 2011 outdoor riding season and I made 44.79 miles in 5 days of riding.
