Getting closer. About 700 miles to go and over 2,000 miles rode. Events at schools, universities, with the American Diabetes Association chapters, with the Tigua Native American Community and with cycling groups. The moments that always get me is the excitement that young kids with T1 show. They get so excited for an autograph, a handshake or a smile. There are lots of reasons to be riding but this is always a reminder and inspiration to keep pedaling.
