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!

Yesterday I ushered in the fall season with a peaceful ride to Kensington Metro Park, pictured above was a resting stop lakeside at Maple Beach to enjoy the stillness of the lake.

Today I was back and this photo is from a brief stop trailside, enjoying the scents and sounds of the woodlands, trailside in the park. Autumn has such unique smells, it's like the culmination of the fullness of summer.
A bit further up the trail I spotted a foursome of sandhill cranes, by the time I stopped and got my camera out of my gear bag, only one was left.
