Best of all - I DIDN'T HAVE A LOW THE ENTIRE RIDE!!!!! Pre-ride I had a protein shake and a 1/2 a bagel; about 10 miles in I had a Cliff Bar and followed that up with 3 carb booms throughout the ride. I can't believe how much easier life is on the pump! My purple pancreas is just amazing - just a complete difference in endurance compared to multiple daily injections.
I think the ADA could have organized the ride better, and marked the course much better. One big frustration was we couldn't find the rest stop in Piermont and the rest stop on 9W had run out of water! Additionally, Battery Park has tremendous foot traffic on Sundays. The only people who came into the Tour De Cure area were ones trying to buy a water - alot of awareness could have been raised yesterday but they would have needed a more organized effort to fully take advantage of that opportunity.
