Tmana, If you enjoy the hills of the Skylands tour, you may also want to look at the MS Hops to Hops in Lambertville. Enjoyable, hilly 40mi route with beer at the end for those that enjoy that sort of thing.
@Robert: Add in nerves and stress to that equation. Plus the aerobic (improved insulin to BG ratio) vs anaerobic (worsened insulin to BG ratio) effect. Easy Peasy. Haha.
Mike: I got a similar impression at the Skylands TdC committee meeting on Tuesday (I heard "shorts", but did not hear "bibshorts"). Team Red apparel must be purchased; Red Rider jerseys are given to Red Riders free of charge.
Hello Megan J yep on long rides, I am plug in with a Bg Monitor. I fuel every 10 miles with 2 Hammer Perpetuem solids tablets or 1/4 Powerbar or a gel you just have to figure out what works for you by testing alot then stick with it. Also figure in exertion level, hills, wind, pace.
FYI: It appears that ADA has two cycling jerseys this year, one for Team Red, and one for Red Riders. Team Red is black and red, and is the same jersey for the country, but also includes shorts and bibshorts as options. Red Rider jerseys sound like they will be the same as last year with the locale on the side.
CGM. I think I did try once, it was tricky and took longer having to ride slowly to focus, than had I just stopped to check.
Question: Do any of you test while riding? If so how do you juggle everything without crashing? Or do you like a sane person stop and check?
Hello everyone start planning to come to Montana for a wonderful Vacation in the Flathead valley, this summer, ride the going to the Sun road in glacier Park, over the divide, I have open the Montana Bike hostel or find us on facebook, I have some ride from my Garmin listed there, MontanaBikeHostel.com Diabetic Cycling Fun.
