My Friend Andy Rides With Diabetes

He was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 22 months. He's turning 25 next week. He's always been an active person so he's been able to control his weight. Four years ago when he started cycling on the regular he lost 15 pounds which is difficult for lots of people, diabetics especially. Andy rides mountain, road, and plays a fair amount of bike polo all for fun but on April 28th he'll be riding for a reason. Andy is raising money for the American Diabetes Association through the Tour de Cure.

Several ride options are available and Andy is doing the 62 Mile Metric Century because he's pretty bad ass.

Andy has set a personal goal to raise $500 for the cure. You can help him meet his goal by visiting donating to his team (search Michael Jameson) or you can start your own team.
