I ride a lot and have raced a few times, however I'm a diabetic and it makes it hard at times. I love the sport though and there isn't anything that will stop me from riding!!!! I've had diabetes since I was 11 and I'm now 15. I'm just curious as to how many of you guys have an illness and still ride or race? Diabetes hasn't really made too much of a difference in me riding except If I go on a large ride I'll carry a pack and something with sugar incase my blood sugar drops too low! Other then that I ride all the time(daily) I have lots of trails right behind my house and I just love it. Racing worry a me though. I've done it 3 times and the 2nd race my blood sugar went low quater way threw and I got real light headed and couldn't finish. But it's a thing I love to do so here I am! How many of you all have a illness but still ride?
