For the past two years or so I have been contemplating riding one of the Haute Route courses, for a while I have questioned if I could even complete a Haute Route course. I believe with the proper training and mind set that I could do so. No matter which Haute Route I choose I will be riding for the Team Type 1 Foundation. I mean what better way to help people with diabetes than by fundraising for the best diabetes foundation in the world!! This article about Team Type 1 and Haute Route explains the amazing partnership that they have developed. The Colorado ride is so appealing to because the Team Type 1 Foundation is the official charity partner!! Just typing that gives me goosebumps!!
I encourage everyone to check out Haute Route and look in to one of the rides. I have dreams of riding in the Alps and the Pyrenees because of their rich cycling history. I also have dreams of riding the new Colorado route because I believe that Colorado is the future of cycling. Most of all I will ride one of the routes because I want to do all that I can to help the Team Type 1 Foundation!!
