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!

A Nod To Our Summer

In much of Michigan we have had an atypical summer.  Cool by most standards and a bit wet.  Color me HAPPY with a BIG GRIN.  We haven't had good beach weather and weekends have been hit or miss, we had one hot spell that lasted for about 10 days or so and enough rain to keep lake levels up and rivers running swift even in August.  We totally missed that long drought hot and dry spell that turns lawns into brown fields and has canoes scrapping bottom around the outside corners of rivers.  For a lot of working folks the pickings have been slim, because the good days have been hit and miss.  For a person who has had the pleasure of a leisure summer and has had the chance to bicycle at will, it couldn't be better.  We've had days on end of that weather that we live to die for.  Cool, low humidity days are usually a very tiny window in spring and fall, but we have had a plethora of them this summer and I couldn't be happier with our weather this summer.

Next five days sunny, mild, temps in the 70's with light winds and low humidity - ahhhhhhhhhhhh!

I better shush now before friends and family who like it hot and sunny come after me with tar and feathers...
