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!

This may explain my absence and time lapse with blog posts...what can I say, at times I'm a nut for stats.

156.26 miles pedaled campaigning via bicycle. Now that's not a big number for bicycling in general however this all took place within 36 square miles. Our township is 6 miles by 6 miles.

2100 homes visited and campaign literature dropped off.

1150 pieces of campaign lit mailed out.

750 pieces of campaign lit passed out at the parade.

It's winding down and we have but a week left till the primary election.  I can't wait to go for a ride where I can pedal more than 20 yards without stopping.  It'll be nice to let the wheels go round and round and ride just for the sheer joy of riding.  I do have to say that this has really been fun.
