TEAM BIKE BEYOND MADE IT TO SAN FRANCISCO!
We rode 4205 miles from New York and were met with an incredible crowd, dipped our tires in the Pacific ocean and killed more than a few bottles of champagne. We truly LIVED BEYOND.
As a team we raised over $750K for Beyond Type 1 programs and research initiatives. Thanks to my incredible support network, I was able to raise over $10,700! THANK YOU.
Amazing team. Amazing Summer.
Team Bike Beyond is a team of 19 cyclists all living with Type 1 Diabetes. On June 4th, 2017, we left Brooklyn, New York and pedalled our way across the United States, all the way to San Francisco, CA.
We met countless amazing humans from the T1D and cycling communities and hopefully inspired at least one person to Live Beyond.
Director Neil Greathouse and NLC Creative have also produced a documentary chronicling our adventures cycling across the country with T1D. It is set to release in 2018. You can check out an EXTENDED SNEAK PEAK on YouTube, here.

Beyond Type 1 creates and funds a portfolio of programs, technologies and innovations that people with Type 1 diabetes need to thrive and manage today, while investing in the most promising cure research for tomorrow.
Beyond Type 1 was founded in 2015 by Juliet de Baubigny, Nick Jonas, Sarah Lucas and Sam Talbot. BT1 Leadership and Founding Friends cover all operational costs, so 100% of every dollar raised supports the most promising global efforts and programs working to educate, advocate and cure Type 1 diabetes.
BT1 is dedicated to creating the strongest, most active network of people navigating Type 1 diabetes…together. The result is the largest collection of practical ideas, stories and medically-accurate information for not only living with, but thriving with Type 1. We are creating a model for today’s philanthropy: new ways to connect people, to fundraise and to invest in the things that people need for today and for tomorrow.
