Yes, I would like to be involved in some way and also love cycling.
I have Type II diabetes diagnosed in 2011.
Myself, mother and father who lost all his toes due to diabetes and poor preventive measures. Others in my family have diabetes as well.
I am an IT Professional originally from NYC living in Antioch. I am prior military and married with three boys. I recently started cycling and will be taking part in this years Tour de Cure in Sacramento-Roseville.
Met a lot of great people yesterday and regrettably I failed meeting my goal but I rode about 12 miles before my third flat. I waited a while to see if Rescue Truck would be around but then walked 3 miles toward the Pit stop when the Rescue Truck found me. I had to give up then because of the tires and I had major muscle pain in legs that did not allow me to proceed. I still wish there were some meet-ups in my area with some of the Red Rider team but I believe I am the farthest out of the area. Oh well, it was great.
