Cyclists with type one diabetes pedaling to Albuquerque, makes stop in Tucson

TUCSON – Two cyclists are riding more than 10,000 miles around the world while educating others about a disease they both live with, type one diabetes.

Erik Douds and Annalisa van den Bergh mad a pit stop in Tucson on Tuesday, April 9.

On this leg of their journey, they are pedaling from Los Angeles to Albuquerque.

Along the way, they take photos of the people they meet, turning it into a magazine and film called “Miles of Portraits.”

“We have a daily reminder not to take our health for granted,” said Erik Douds, one of the riders. “So, when people ask us why we are doing this while we are so young, it’s because we recognize that there is no guarantee to wake up tomorrow. So, live your dreams today.”
