Today my social media feeds were nothing but information on World Bicycle Day and Team Novo Nordisk at the United Nations with Phil Southerland as the primary speaker at the event. As I scrolled through my feeds around 9am I got a chill as I started thinking about Team Novo Nordisks long road. The day the team was formed I knew it was something special and my life changed, yes my diabetes life but my life changed as well. Team Novo Nordisk taught me how to dream and to work my butt off for my dream. Team Novo Nordisk taught me to do everything I can and take the jump when you're going after your dream. If Phil Southerland and Team Novo Nordisk had listened to their doubters than the team would not be. I can't tell you the number of doubters I have talked to while at team events. If I had a dollar for every time I have heard "Good story but they can't compete with the best in the world" I'd have a beach house in Florida.
The bike and Team Novo Nordisk saved my life. On World Bicycle Day I ask that people give the bike a chance, not only will it change your world but it will change the world in which you live. Besides the physical befits I can't imagine how much money I have saved on gas from riding my bike to work over the past eight years. The bike isn't the past it is the future. In a world that is facing fossil fuel concerns the bike is there and has no emissions.
