Never thought I would be in this chat, I have just finished stripping down and packing my bike before flying out to Majorca for some warm weather training

Have set yourselves minimum blood sugar level targets at the end of each days race?

I have done some very short rides with my son's bike. It's relatively new and is just my size.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 17, pumper  (69.212.49.40) Wed Apr 18 09:03:08 PM EDT 2007
Neal (my husband) just started riding again a couple of weeks ago. The bike has been 'in storage' for several years. I'm hoping he'll hook up with you, Phil, for some pointers.

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:04:33 PM EDT 2007
Hey Daniel,
Next week, Team Type 1 will field 6 riders (all type 1) into the Tour of Virginia, www.tourofvirginia.com
So the chat could be about what it takes to do that, begin riding, or anything at all

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:04:37 PM EDT 2007
I read an aritice about Peter Hoogenboom who rode all around the U.S. as the winner of the Bayer Asencia Dream Fund Tour. His goal was 10,000 miles around the 48 contiguous states. Awesome, but a few too many miles for most of us!

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:05:13 PM EDT 2007
Laura, please send him my way. Great to hear that he is riding

Registered User Daniel/FL Pumper/sensor  (71.101.144.72) Wed Apr 18 09:06:04 PM EDT 2007
Thanks Phil, How long is the ride? It has been years since I have ridden but I play tennis 3 to 4 time s a week and would love to get back into it.

Registered User RatLuver 16 dxd @ 11 minimed pumper  (72.201.172.181) Wed Apr 18 09:06:11 PM EDT 2007
when riding do you feel your sugar dropping?

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:06:15 PM EDT 2007
Brenda, great that it fits. How have they been? Peter is a very nice guy. I hope he achieves the goal!

Registered User joanna626 Phil's mom  (69.244.222.235) Wed Apr 18 09:07:02 PM EDT 2007
Hi Phil -- from Tallahassee - your mom

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:07:14 PM EDT 2007
Daniel, it is appx 500 miles in 6 days. It is a pro/am race, and the first time an all type 1 team has entered one of those.

Registered User Daniel/FL Pumper/sensor  (71.101.144.72) Wed Apr 18 09:07:24 PM EDT 2007
(Virginia is such a beautiful state!)

Registered User Cyclist, over the top of life's hill type 1, UK  (217.44.220.32) Wed Apr 18 09:07:35 PM EDT 2007
Ok I see there are three consecutive days of 100 miles plus, that is a bit of a challenge,

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:08:12 PM EDT 2007
I don't know Peter personally. The article doesn't really say if he actually made it to all 48 states. Says he kept a blog www.thedreamtour.org

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:08:23 PM EDT 2007
Hey RatLuvr, great question. If it drops I notice a loss of power, and it usually will begin to drop 20-30 minutes in. So I try to eat a lot, especially in the early stages

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:08:34 PM EDT 2007
Hi Mom:)

Registered User joanna626 Phil's mom  (69.244.222.235) Wed Apr 18 09:08:41 PM EDT 2007
Phil - how long is your chat?

Registered User RatLuver 16 dxd @ 11 minimed pumper  (72.201.172.181) Wed Apr 18 09:09:00 PM EDT 2007
Phil does cycling seem to help with your d?

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:09:09 PM EDT 2007
Beautiful: meaning lots of mountains, which are nice to look at, but hard to ride up...haha

Registered User Daniel/FL Pumper/sensor  (71.101.144.72) Wed Apr 18 09:09:25 PM EDT 2007
OK Phil, I will have to get in shape and maybe be ready for next year.  Cool 

Registered User Judith David, 21, diagnosed at age 8 weeks  (64.184.81.154) Wed Apr 18 09:09:37 PM EDT 2007
Hello

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:09:41 PM EDT 2007
It is going to be a very tough race. We are aiming for stage wins in the end of the week.

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:09:46 PM EDT 2007
Hi mom, did Phil do all his homework before he went outside to ride his bike?  LOL 

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:10:03 PM EDT 2007
Thanks Brenda. I am sure he will

Registered User Cyclist, over the top of life's hill type 1, UK  (217.44.220.32) Wed Apr 18 09:10:07 PM EDT 2007
Hello Judith

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:10:36 PM EDT 2007
Cycling definitely helps. When training, I use much less insulin, and bs's are more stable.

Registered User joanna626 Phil's mom  (69.244.222.235) Wed Apr 18 09:10:36 PM EDT 2007
Oh, Phil loved homework more than his bike LOL 

Registered User Daniel/FL Pumper/sensor  (71.101.144.72) Wed Apr 18 09:10:39 PM EDT 2007
Rat, I can tell you that regular exercise is the best thing to help your "d" and your physical life.

Registered User joanna626 Phil's mom  (69.244.222.235) Wed Apr 18 09:11:08 PM EDT 2007
I tried to use the bike as leverage - I think it worked - once.

Registered User Billetdeaux Moderator, Sam's mom, 17, pumper  (69.212.49.40) Wed Apr 18 09:11:14 PM EDT 2007
That's funny, Phil. Your mom checks out your chat.  LOL  Chats are officially an hour, but sometimes the conversation goes a bit longer.

Registered User Judith David, 21, diagnosed at age 8 weeks  (64.184.81.154) Wed Apr 18 09:11:17 PM EDT 2007
Phil, I see you were diagnosed as a young infant. Do you know about the testing for genetic mutations in neonatal diabetes? Some are able to use sulfonylurea drugs come off insulin - even decades after diagnosis.

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:11:19 PM EDT 2007
Daniel, sounds great. You are already on the team!

Registered User Cyclist, over the top of life's hill type 1, UK  (217.44.220.32) Wed Apr 18 09:11:23 PM EDT 2007
Brenda Eek  I was going to ask if he cleaned his bike and who washed all the cycling gear Blush 

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:12:08 PM EDT 2007
thanks mom, of course HW was 1st priority...ha

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:12:32 PM EDT 2007
I asked her to join, and glad she did.

Registered User Judith David, 21, diagnosed at age 8 weeks  (64.184.81.154) Wed Apr 18 09:13:09 PM EDT 2007
My son's endo led teen bike trips (600-800 miles in about 10 days) for 20 years.

Registered User Cyclist, over the top of life's hill type 1, UK  (217.44.220.32) Wed Apr 18 09:13:20 PM EDT 2007
So Phil have you got any plans to prevent being hit with a delayed onset hypo, particularly with 3 days, one after another of 100 miles plus, something I haven't done

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:13:44 PM EDT 2007
Jeff and I went on a nearby trail about 3 weeks ago and I hadn't ridden on dirt in about 30 years. It was quite embarassing as I kind of tumbled off the bike going up a very short "hill." Blush  Haven't ridden much since as it got very cold/windy/rainy.

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:13:47 PM EDT 2007
Hi Judith. Not quite as young as you. I have read about the testing, and I do not qualify. Wouldn't want to give up diabetes anyway:)

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:14:32 PM EDT 2007
Brenda, we all take tumbles from time to time. My mom can vouch for the road rash I was decorated with as a junior

Registered User RatLuver 16 dxd @ 11 minimed pumper  (72.201.172.181) Wed Apr 18 09:14:41 PM EDT 2007
I just ride to the pharmacy to get my strips.. That'a exercise it's a 2 mile ride. (pathetic)

Registered User Judith David, 21, diagnosed at age 8 weeks  (64.184.81.154) Wed Apr 18 09:15:02 PM EDT 2007
Oh, you'd still have diabetes...but it would be easier to manage. Grin  Some are testing anyone dx'd under the age of 5. If you haven't contacted Dr. Louis Philipson at U of Chicago, please do.....

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:15:09 PM EDT 2007
Hmm, I bet we could ride to Laura's house from ours--four hours by car, so maybe 10 by bike???

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:15:16 PM EDT 2007
Cyclist: Yes, we will be checking BS's 2-3 times a night, and making sure that we are properly fueled at all times.

Registered User Judith David, 21, diagnosed at age 8 weeks  (64.184.81.154) Wed Apr 18 09:15:34 PM EDT 2007
Testing is VERY easy: spit into a cup! Free, postage paid! What a deal!

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:15:43 PM EDT 2007
As you know a hypo the morning of a 100 mile stage is not a good way to start.

Registered User Cyclist, over the top of life's hill type 1, UK  (217.44.220.32) Wed Apr 18 09:16:03 PM EDT 2007
How far Brenda?

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:16:13 PM EDT 2007
Judith, I spoke with him, and we did some testing. Did you?

Registered User Judith David, 21, diagnosed at age 8 weeks  (64.184.81.154) Wed Apr 18 09:16:40 PM EDT 2007
My son was tested, with negative results.

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:16:44 PM EDT 2007
Brenda, How was Jeff on the bike?

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:17:01 PM EDT 2007
Cyclist, I am not sure how far it is (maybe 300 miles--sorry I can't convert to kms for you).

Registered User Judith David, 21, diagnosed at age 8 weeks  (64.184.81.154) Wed Apr 18 09:17:14 PM EDT 2007
I'm just trying to spread the word. I know the grandfather of the first one Philipson took off insulin.

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:17:18 PM EDT 2007
RatLuvr: 2 miles is a great start. Can build from there. A little farther each time.

Registered User Cyclist, over the top of life's hill type 1, UK  (217.44.220.32) Wed Apr 18 09:17:19 PM EDT 2007
Phil, is Team Type 1 riding the Tour of Ohio

Registered User Judith David, 21, diagnosed at age 8 weeks  (64.184.81.154) Wed Apr 18 09:17:48 PM EDT 2007
Our endo has sent several patients for testing. So far one mother/son pair has been able to wean off insulin.

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:17:49 PM EDT 2007
Jeff rides a bit more than me, but doesn't really have the time. He did get a new bike recently so he could ride with our son.

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:18:45 PM EDT 2007
Brenda: I would plan for 17 hrs. I road home from Atl-Tallahassee and back this winter. It was appx 320 miles each way, and took 16.5 hrs each way (2 days down, 2 back)

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:19:00 PM EDT 2007
Thanks Judith

Jeff thinks it would take us four DAYS to get to Laura's, plus a stop at the hospital to deal with our aches and pains. LOL 

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:19:53 PM EDT 2007
Cyclist: No no ToOhio for us. That is the same time as the Race Across America

Registered User joanna626 Phil's mom  (69.244.222.235) Wed Apr 18 09:20:04 PM EDT 2007
Phil -- talk about your team -- they have all had diabetes a while - type 1

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:20:20 PM EDT 2007
Maybe I should have included stops for Marissa to check her BG and eat, plus a few potty breaks.

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:20:53 PM EDT 2007
Lol Brenda... You could do it!! Could be fun. Maybe Laura would ride back with you??

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:21:50 PM EDT 2007
Maybe you will have to come visit us, with your bike, and YOU can do the ride to Laura's. She lives on a dirt road out in the middle of nowhere southern Michigan. Smile 

Registered User Chelsea I live in canada a i am 14years old  (68.148.81.7) Wed Apr 18 09:22:02 PM EDT 2007
do they have any of the bike teams in canada

Laura doesn't do bikes. Just elliptical trainers that stay in one place! Grin 

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:22:48 PM EDT 2007
That would be great! I love riding on the dirt

How does one not get a sore "derriere" from all that riding?

Registered User Judith David, 21, diagnosed at age 8 weeks  (64.184.81.154) Wed Apr 18 09:23:15 PM EDT 2007
Phil, what foods/energy bars do you use when doing long distance riding?

Registered User Phil Southerland- Team Type 1 Dx'd at 7 months  (70.223.19.170) Wed Apr 18 09:23:18 PM EDT 2007
Chelsea, there are a lot of bike teams in Canada. they have some really fast riders.

Where is the GOBA? We are in OH. I could see if you will be nearby.

Phil, not so fast as the Brits though, how many medals did we get at the World Championships......

Laura- elliptical can be fun... riding on the dirt is good too:)

Brenda: Good shorts. It takes a few weeks to get the rear used to the sear

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 19, dx'd 9/89 (future nurse)  (216.68.227.252) Wed Apr 18 09:24:58 PM EDT 2007
Are any of the Team riders pumpers?

Registered User Cyclist, over the top of life's hill type 1, UK  (217.44.220.32) Wed Apr 18 09:25:04 PM EDT 2007
Brenda, Celina, I think it is on the opposite side of the state to Hamilton

Cyclist, I am a walker, not a bike rider. Not that I have anything against bikes. I just prefer to walk. On a good week (nice weather, no appointments or whatever), I will try to walk 20-30 miles. I could cover the same distance in much less time on a bike, but I just don't feel like it's the same amount of exrcise. For me, I think I'd need to ride 10 miles to feel the same amount of exercise. However, I will try to rider occasionally so I can use slightly different muscles.

Phil, Jeff doesn't need motivation; he needs time! He got home late Monday and leaves again for CA tomorrow. Working constantly while here. Never a dull moment. Smile
