Terrific! Good luck and have a wonderful time!Hi all
I am a T2 diagnosed in 1986, went on insulin in 2000.
I am riding my bicycle in the New England Classic to raise money for the American Diabetes Association.. The NEC is a bicycle ride from Woburn MA to Kennebunk ME. A distance of 150 miles in 2 days (Unless you follow me, then its 168, I got lost) July 11 - 12th.
Sounds like you have everything under control. Be careful and take some glucose tablets with you. I wish I was more steady on a regular bike, it is really good exercise! I end up on the ground alot when riding a regular bike so I ride a stationary bike.Today was suppose to be a rest day. I was at the grocery store and started to feel a little low, So grabbed some potato chips potato is a fast BG riser. Well I cant eat just 1, by the time I got home Id eaten about 1/3 of the bag and My BG was 69 I knew it would be going up shortly, for I had eaten about 45 carbs. With a BG of 69 I would need 8 IU of Novalog for that many carbs. So I went for a bike ride instead I rode 5.5 miles in about 20 minutes. After the ride My BG was only 93. 1 1/2 hours later it was 96 No added insulin
As I continue to ride I have to reduce my morning Basal or I'd be running low all the time. In the last 5 days I've had to reduce my Lantis by 6 units and I'm going down 2 more units tomorrow morning.
tomorrow is 23 mile ride.
