Bike mount for glucometer NIPRO TRUERESULT TWIST and TRUE2GO. Really interesting for bikers.

Mike: those are triathlon transitions, I take it? And the skill is in changing clothing and gear quickly?

That made me laugh miketosh enjoy the practicing :)regardless.

Woops, context. I mean T1 practice as Swim to Bike, not T1 practice as in injecting insulin. haha! Just in case anyone wondered why a 20year T1D would need a specific "practice" :-)

600k, that's craziness! Enjoy. Red Riders too. I've got Open Water Swim, T1 practice, and a short 12 mile bike on the schedule this weekend.

Today was a 20 mile bike, containing 9x 1 mile sprints, T2 practice, then a short 3 mile run.

I've got a 600km ride this weekend near Portland, OR. Looks like I'll finally get a long ride with good weather after so many rainy brevets this season.

Congrats Mike and tmana! Way to go you Red Riders. I've just been released back on the bike as of last Friday. CT scan is fantastic -- back fusion has taken completely and it's all bone back there now (L5/S1). First thing I did was go out on the MTB for 10 miles (which exhausted me, but in a good way). Been missing it SO much. Have a great ride tomorrow, Mike. /\/\

Please think about me tomorrow as I ride 63 as a Red Rider in the Tour de Cure - Kentucky.

Comment by tmana on June 2, 2014 at 8:38pm

Congrats, Mike! Yesterday was my local Tour de Cure -- my fifth one (and my third on the Committee). If you count my having volunteered to Road Marshal the NYC Tour, it was my sixth ride.

Yeah, and now that I have this RoadID, we can't move for awhile.
