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!

Phase I Non Motorized Path Barker Road Open!

A group of about 40 adults and a few dozen kids showed up for the ribbon cutting on the new pathway along with local officials, and those from the County and State.  I did a presentation thanking all of the groups, clubs, orginizations and agencies who had a hand in supporting the project.  This list is lengthy.

We had three year olds on their trikes, mother and son pulling wee ones on a trailer behind them, a couple on a tandem and several singles bikes and walkers anxious to take the first steps on the new walkway.  Yours truly had the lead bike but the kids were so exicted that I let them go first and they took off running and yelling their heads off.  Of course this all took place just as school was letting out so there was pent up exhuberance! Plus they had been plied with cookies and cider courtsey of a local bike shop Hometown Bicycles and our local coffee shop Peaberry Bean and Beats.

Afterwards, four of us ended up riding out to independence lake county park.
