05/29 Pre-Ride Questionnaire

Tell us about the first time you rode a bike. 
I remember the first time I rode my bike without training wheels and being proud of my scraped up knees from my first fall. I’ve been on bikes my whole life whether I was riding toy tricycles or when I had my training wheels or just being towed behind my dad in one of those little kid trailer things.

Tell us about a crazy moment or embarrassing experience with Type 1.
I don’t have any crazy stories really. I used to try to convince people at parties that my “pager” (my pump) didn’t run on batteries but it was connected to my body because it “ran on the natural electrical current that the body produces”. Not sure if anyone ever believed that, but it created a conversation and made me more comfortable in those situations. Now I’m more open about my Type 1 and I’m more willing to take the time to describe what my pump is for and what Type 1 is all about.

What would your spirit animal be?
Tiger

What’s your go-to low snack?
Anything and Everything. Love when I have chocolate or candy, but usually I find some juice, sports drink, or soda to get those quick sugars. If I don’t find anything good or don’t have time to look, then I just use glucose tablets.

Tell us something on your bucket list.
The next item on my bucket list is to fly a helicopter.

If your friends could pick three adjectives to describe you, what would they be?
Knowledgeable, Silly, Creative.

What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why?
Hockey(NHL). It isn’t on tv a lot here, so if I have the opportunity to watch two good teams play I usually take it.

Tell us something about yourself that most people wouldn’t know.
I am an ordained minister.

What’s a super power you wish you had?
Teleportation would be cool. I could see the world and just save a lot of time on a daily basis.

Tell us something you’re good at!
I think I’m good at challenging myself to become a better version of myself everyday. I find something I wish I was better at, then find out the steps I need to take to improve and then take those steps.

If you had a theme song for yourself, what would it be?
Superman by Goldfinger

If you had a nick name/alter ego for yourself during the ride, what would it be?
My friends call me Jmoney, but I’m building an alter ego/brand for myself and this trip as the Type 1 Tiger
