November 11th we held the 1st Blue Bike Tour for the World Diabetes Day, in São Paulo city. We distributed glucose tablets (provided by Glicofast) and shirts for all entrants (provided by Roche, Accu-check, debemcomavida.com.br) and just before getting started we checked the glycemia and warmed up with the guidance of Prof. Junior.
We cycled in line with a stop (halfway) to check blood glucose levels and make necessary corrections.
It was a great team, during the activity everyone respected each other limits and were concerned about the safety of the group. During the activity, besides calling the attention of the cars passing by, we were questioned by other people using the cycle track, at the departure and arrival point (with diabetes, health care professionals, friends of people with diabetes), about the event and the cause.
At the end of the activity we gave away squeezes and glucometer provided by Roche Diagnóstica, debemcomavida.com.br and ACCU-CHECK!
Can´t wait for the next Blue Bike Tour!!!!
