Type 1 Rider

Tony Cervati lives with type 1 diabetes and loves his bike. That’s basically all you need to know coming in to this podcast as we discuss his diagnosis and early maturation as he learned to live with diabetes, why high school athletics were a defining moment for his life and what compelled him to get on a bike for the first time. There’s also plenty of talk about Type 1 Rider, what motivates him to keep going, and there’s a story about a bear encounter that you do not want to miss.
