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!

Tour de Livingston!

It's that time of year again for the TdL and I've been training all week for my upcoming ride!  Last year there were over 550 riders.  This year they have expanded the venue to include mountain biking with several mountain bike routes to choose from from beginner to expert plus they added an intermediate road bike mileage route that is more off the main roads with lesser traffic volumes for beginners who are intimidated by cars whizzing by at high speeds on narrow roads.  I am betting that there will be upwards of 800 riders this year. 

The forecast is for gorgeous weather.  Yipee!  Last year I raised funds for the Howell Rotary who puts on the event and over $25,000 was raised for the United Way.  I've been raising funds this year too and have surpassed my goal of $300.00.

Ready.  Set.  Go!
