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!

March Winds

Yipee for an outdoor ride today!  We had temps over 66F and there was no chance I would miss this opportunity, we had great weather yesterday and I couldn't get out so this afternoon was reserved for the Lakelands Trail with my niece Lisa.  Strong winds gusting to 45 MPH made our choice of trails a good one as this trail is mostly protected by woods and hills.  There were a few open areas to traverse and I could feel the wind push me around a bit but the trail goes east/west and the winds were from the south so we had neither headwinds or tailwinds in either direction.  We stopped for photos in an open area along side of Zukey Lake and it was frothed up with whitecaps.
