Hello Fellow Riders!

As many as three million Americans have Type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is a hereditary, incurable disease that people usually get diagnosed with in their childhood. My partner Lindsay has been diagnosed with diabetes since she was nine. It affects her daily life to moments where instead of being able to just walk home, she needs to sit down and wait for sugar to absorb into her system. I just picked up cycling this summer, and I'm training for a 50 mile ride to help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation help make living with Type 1 diabetes easier, and one day, curable.

Live strong!
