Summer 2018 – Read The Ti(r)es That Bind – Team Bike Beyond One Year Later. Can you guess who found love?
Summer 2017 – 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.
Each rider has his or her own profile page where they shared daily updates throughout the journey. You’ll find photos, video and personal testimony.
Meet Team Bike Beyond! These 22 riders have been selected to bike across the USA as type 1 ambassadors because of their unique, inspiring stories and determination to take on a challenge. Get to know them—we think you’ll be inspired by each and every team member! Click on their photo for more information and individual fundraising pages. Each rider is required to raise $4,500 to participate. Sweating for a good cause!
