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!

February 4th Outdoor Riding

I had a lovely and invigorating ride today, up one side of the lake and down the other.  It was great to be out in the sunshine and mild temps.  We are having the most interesting and unusual winter, not much snow, very warm and mild temperatures and a lake that can't make up it's mind about freezing over. 

A few weeks ago it formed a skin from shore to shore but each time there appears to be some thickening of the ice we get rain or sunshine and warm temps.  It's frozen over, but I wouldn't walk out on it, what little ice we have is rotten and unsafe.

Our family celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of my Sister Elaine and her Husband Bob.  After the special service at church this morning we enjoyed a nice family dinner together.  Families are great!
The Happy Couple!
