Q&A


REASON YOU RIDE:

I ride for fun, exercise and comradery. I also ride because it connects me with different communities of people. As a Type 1 diabetic I have had the opportunity to meet and ride with professional riders who also have Type 1 Diabetes. They are an inspiration and I hope to also be an inspiration to people, especially riders who have just found out they have this disease. I’ve never been an “athlete” but I sure do love the sense of accomplishment when I get some miles in. Even on a bad day, it’s a great day if you get to ride.

FAVORITE SEASON TO RIDE:

SPRING AND FALL. Summers are rough here but with my Spruzza attached to my bike I can ride in the heat! Giving me more a more flexible window to get out and ride after work, when it is the hottest part of the day.

FAVORITE TIME OF DAY TO RIDE:  

Whenever I can get on my bike!

BEST THING ABOUT RIDING:

Feeling like a kid again

WORST THING ABOUT RIDING:

The worst thing about riding turns into a great thing once it’s over…hills!! I hate hills but when you get to the top you feel so great.

BIGGEST CHALLENGE:

Did I mention hills??
