Final update from Cheryl!

Homeward bound after being on the road traveling in some fashion since May 26th and I have to say that after biking almost 4300 miles and unpacking and repacking multiple suitcases every night/morning, I feel like Forrest Gump #ImTiredAndReadyToGoHomeNow Recap coming soon! First we have to get Ella and Abby off to college


Team Bike Beyond completed an epic, 10-week adventure, pedaling from New York City to San Francisco. The international team of 20 riders hailed from the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. All are living with Type 1 diabetes — collectively with a whopping 263 years of experience! As they journeyed across the country, they destroyed stereotypes and showed the world what living beyond Type 1 looks like. The team educated people on the warning signs of Type 1 and what it means to thrive with the chronic illness. They also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Type 1 diabetes cure research.

Catch up on the action! The rider update feed chronicles their entire journey.

Where did the riders go? See the route overview.


Oh, and listen up! We’re taking over the Diabetes Connections Podcast with updates all summer long! In this final episode we talk about the unbelievable impact of Bike Beyond – or click through to start from the first episode and hear how far we’ve come:

DAY 71


With a team celebratory brunch, and a day recovering, the riders will then celebrate the completion of the ride by joining supporters, family, friends, and sponsors at the GoPro Headquarters for the ‘Thats a Wrap’ Party!
