The Portland ADA does training rides every Saturday from now until Tour de Cure on July 30th. It's a mix of type 1 and 2 and non-diabetics. "Tour de Cure Oregon" on Facebook gives info on each ride :) Do you live in Portland or Seattle? I'm a type 1 gal in Portland and know some type 1 cyclists in the Portland area.
I'm familiar with the TDC Oregon page and training rides, and next weekend I'm hoping to start joining them. I do live in PDX, and am looking for a little more than a 17 mile spin. I'm pretty comfortable doing 40-60 at this point, but haven't had the support or opportunity to try anything between 60-100 miles. I have really limited experience on my bike since being diagnosed, and am a little scared to do anything over 40 miles solo. I would LOVE to get in touch with some Type 1 cyclists in the area! I don't know of ANY!
