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!

Barker Road Bike Path - Update

Here are some photos of the completion of the second phase of the project.  It's not completed just yet, when I rode by today there were finishing touches being  put on the grading and some landscaping.  These photos were from last Saturday.  I love watching this project come together.

This is my favorite photo, it depicts exactly why the path was 
built, to help connect people from west of town to downtown.
Pictured here is father and son and it looks like they are returning
from a trip to the Polly's Market to home, you can see a grocery
bag swinging from the dad's handlebars. It just tickles me that it isn't
even complete yet and people are already using it.  


  1. You seem to have some nice paths there. I wish I had some paths like that here.

    1. Yes, there are a number of great paths close by here. Where are you and why doesn't your community have bike paths?

  2. I so love the way the article is presented. I am planning to follow the blog.
