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 Is About The Shortest Journey Ever Expected

It's two weeks and 5 days post surgery and all is very good.  I had expected a much longer recuperation and down time.  At two weeks post surgery I was back at my desk at work for a few hours anyway.  This week I've been at work daily but short days they are.  There is a lot to do to get ready to transition out of the Supervisors office.  Light packing, files to work on and work continues but at a slower pace. 

We are having a bout of Indian Summer with temps soaring into the high 70's today and perhaps 80's tomorrow.  Oh my goodness how I want to hop on my bike!  Sigh.  I am fearful because of the handle bars and my incision.  If not for that and the breastbone that is still healing I'd go out for a ride for sure.  There is always the possibility of a tumble and I don't think I could take that.  I want to go so bad I can taste it!  The spirit is willing but the flesh is not.

The brightest spot at the moment is that work has commenced on Phase II of the non-motorized path project.  The Board of Trustees did it's utmost to stall, delay and obstruct the beginnings of this but lo and behold ground broke on Monday and as I drove over to the job site and took more photos today the contractors are taking full advantage of the weather and going lickety split on the project. 

If you are a facebook user you can find more photos at this link: Northfield Township FB page.  Here are a few I snapped today. .
