RAD is really all about how you can get yourself to exercise and eat smart . . . to win the race against diabetes.

Why we encourage cycling

Walking, cycling, swimming, shooting hoops, smacking volleyballs . . . even golf if you walk the course . . . it’s all good. But some of us diabetics can’t walk without pain . . . .

Cycling’s our recommendation if you can’t walk much–almost everyone can cycle without hurting their feet. Do choose safe paths–or […]
