Team Bike Beyond is HALF WAY through their 70-day cross country ride. Here’s a documentary sneak peek from Neil Greathouse + the riders!

updates from Helen’s day in the van!

Lunch van duties today in the van with lovely Perri. It’s definitely not a rest day as your have to stick with the team providing water, food, low snacks and any other help needed. It was great to watch the team be so great, pushing so hard in crazy hot weathers, on a long ride with a lot of hills!


Weirdly I had the most hypos in one day today. Maybe after yesterday’s big ride? I like to look for patterns/trends in my sugar levels but mainly I like to accept it does whatever and I just aim to deal with it at it comes!

Tell us about the first time you rode a bike. 
Can’t remember the very first time i rode a bike as a kid, but I do remember early last year a few months diagnosis I went out on my brand new bike in the park next door for a simple 14km ride and falling over a few times as I learnt how to use cleats on a cold day with the biggest smile and thinking “wow” that was impressive after 2 years of very bad health.

Tell us about a crazy moment or embarrassing experience with Type 1.
Brussels airport security check and the lady on the check asked, whats that thing on your arm (libre sensor) and I said I worked for Apple and I am traveling around the world to beta test products for iPhone 10.
