Walt Drennan


Walt was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2000 at the age of 12. Despite having T1D for over half his life Walt didn’t really come to terms with it until after completing a cross country charity cycling tour in 2012. Cycling over 4,000 miles from South Carolina to California in 80 days with no Type 1 complications made Walter realize that the only thing holding him back from doing everything he wanted was himself. He’s been cycling ever since and completed a second cross-country charity cycling tour from Maryland to Oregon in 2014. In 2017, he was team coordinator for Bike Beyond.
