Meet May’s Spruzza Athlete, Angie
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.
Did I mention hills??
