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!

30 Days Of Biking Pledge

Beginning April 1st over 3,000 people around the world have taken a pledge to ride every day for 30 days.  I did too, I took the pledge to put  in writing this commitment.  Bicycling is a love and passion and doing so should not be something that I need to commit to in order to ensure that I get out and do it.  However on some days the additional motivation serves up a big boost.  Bundling up and prepping for a ride in the cold early spring is not the same as hopping on your bike in tee shirt and shorts in the summer.

I started this post in the first few days of the month and unusual busyness has kept me from completing it and posting.  Spring is here even if it is only in fits and starts and regular posting is back in order.  Thanks to the readers who continue to peruse the blog.  More reading coming up!
