Brynn is a diabetic AND a biker: "I’m committed to not let my Type 1 determine what I can and can’t with my life...Getting on our bikes and going out for 75 miles makes us feel strong and powerful."
Featured Jetter: Cazzy Magennis, the beauty and brains behind the Dream Big Travel Far blog, "the travel blog for budget backpackers and type 1 diabetics."
"I feel very independent and self-sufficient when I rely on my bike to get where I need to go. It saves me the money and hassle of owning a car, and it gives me a great excuse to move my body daily."
Cyclists were white and lean and I felt very disconnected from them. I felt disconnected from everyone who made exercise a part of their daily lives: I felt like they had gotten a memo twenty years ago that gave them the leg up on how to do this, and that their struggles were humblebrags, their successes merely perfunctory acknowledgments of the package of abilities they'd already been bequeathed.
