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!

Heat Returns

It's early morning or late evening riding for the foreseeable week, the mercury is rising right along with the humidity.  I got to Kensington at 9:36 and made the 9.1 mile loop in 58 min.  Total time on the bike was 1 hr and 11 min so I had some rest periods in there.  An hour earlier would have been ideal and had me back before it started heating up but it was still early enough to beat the real heat of the day.  At places where the path takes you into open meadows with no cover is where the heat will get you, at that time of day the wooded areas provided cooler shade still and it was georgous along the lake.  Beautiful park to ride in.

Here is a link to the route Kensington ride for some reason the mapping site missed the last section of my ride so there is some mileage variation.
