When I first started getting in to cycling I had so many questions, I was very lucky that I had amazing friends in the diabetes community that helped me every step of the way. When I had a question they did the best that they could to answer it. Even with the help of so many I still had questions that were not answered , I've had a lot of lows and highs while on the bike. To this day I still have questions.
I know how difficult it was for me to ask questions, I was scared people wouldn't understand or thought I was weird because the question I asked was answered so easily. I want to help others living with diabetes to have a smooth transition to becoming a diabetes athlete, that is why tonight I'm starting the ask The Diabetic Cyclist weekly blog post. The questions can be about anything, this is not just a thing for athletes, the questions can range from "how do you tell people about diabetes?", "When you eat pasta how do you cover it with insulin?", and "I'm about to ride my first century, what should I know as a diabetic?"
Any questions that you have please send to firstname.lastname@example.org I will read each email and pick one question every Friday to answer. I will not use anyones name or email address when I answer the question, I will only post the question and my response. I'm looking forward to all of the questions and can't wait to answer them. If your email is not picked to be on the blog don't worry, I will be sure to email you and answer your question to the best of my ability.
