Team Type 1 is one of my favorite professional cycling team. What an inspiration for those with diabetes. Thanks for posting this information.

While I imagine cycling with diabetes can be a little tricky initially, I'll bet with a little experience the cycling can be well factored in and ultimately be quite the ally to stabilizing blood sugar.

Thx for the resource, will save this for anyone who might benefit from the info!

Interesting read for anyone with diabetes

Did an experiment using some information in the document this morning, I checked my Glucose before I started and found it to be 98, a little below the recommended value. So I ate a little and let it digest while I peeled some Mandarin Cuties. I then went for my ride and checked my blood sugar every half hour and had a snack each time. My glucose fluctuated in a fairly tight range between a low of 74 and a high of 99.

It made a huge difference in my riding experience this morning. I did my first 30 mile ride and came back with energy to spare, simply ran out of time.
