The article Tanya posted is good but misses one important factor: until you know exactly how your body reacts to exercise, it's prudent to carry fast acting glucose tablets with you.
Even though I know how I react to exercise (I don't eat prior to exercise, because as a type 1 on a pump, I'm able to compensate with a lower basal rate of insulin prior to exercising, and I'm trying to lose weight), I ALWAYS carry my glucose meter and testing supplies, my cell phone, and glucose tablets. Better safe than sorry!
