Around 1pm I all but shut down my pump so that I would be able to ride home without any problems. Shutting down the pump an hour before my ride has not been working, I would try two hours and see how things went. The toughest part is making sure I don't take to much insulin with lunch, if I do I'll be low around 2pm and that will put a kink in the plan. Today everything worked, when I tested around 3pm I was at 146, I had a glass of orange juice and got ready to ride. The ride home went very well, I ride a much more relaxed pace in the afternoon that way I change what the way my body works on the bike. It helps the muscles in some way or so I have read. Arriving home my blood sugar was at 98, I'd take four units of insulin and enjoy my evening.
I have included another video today, this is a video by Daniel Schneider who is a member of team type 1. I am obsessed with these guys, they are much better cyclists then I but diabetes wise it's all the same. The trouble I have with the bike and diabetes they have as well. It's great to know that I'm not the only one trying to ride at a higher level while also battling diabetes. This video gives everyone an idea of what diabetics need to have with them while they ride.
