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!

Walsh Road


Elevation data taken from MapMyRide
This is a photo of Walsh Road from the book "Dirt Road Washtenaw" by Rob Pulpicher, I have been exploring the wonderful world out of my backdoor on dirt roads throughtout my township and surrounding communities.  Last night I rode this section of Walsh Road and yes it is that steep.  The ride back was challenging, however there are dozens of rolling hills like this along the route I took.  Last night I rode west on Barker to Merrill, south to Walsh and west to Mast and returned.  It was 10 miles of roller coaster hills and beautiful countryside. The ride took me through portions of Northfield and Webster Townships.
