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!

Commuting And Cool Down

Not cool down from exercise but our temps in Michigan have cooled down from the hot summer heat wave that affected most of the mid-west and nation.  It sure makes commuting enjoyable and I have commuted every day this week, luckily all meetings I've had this week have been right in town and I can bike to them too. 

This morning was the lovliest of mornings in a long while.  No humidity, mile high blue skies, no wind and cool temps.  There was the hint of fall in the air, it made me just a little sad even though I love the fall season it was just the reminder that time is flying past.  Also the middle school sign that I pass daily changed from saying "have a great summer vacation" to "school starts September 6th."  Thud.  There goes summer.  Well, not really but the signs are in the air.
