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!

Week #22

Mileage for week #22 of this outdoor riding season was 39.56 miles.  I've read up a bit on training and each 6-8 weeks a person needs to take an off week or a light week.  Except for my Monday ride on Walsh Road, this would qualify as a week of low intensity riding.  No double digit mileage this week, all but one day was under ten miles.  Four days of riding and 4.25 hours on the bike.  Good timing for this as the heat has returned with a big spike in temps and unbelievable humidity.  I've been under the weather for a few days now and looking forward to lower temps at the beginning of next week.
