Well, Ive read somewhere that there is a possibility to reduce sugar levels by cycling in type 2. Cycling burns a lot of carbohydrates and fat so that it can reduce levels of sugar. It is important to do blood tests very frequently during a ride. You can, for example, measure your levels at the beginning of your training that at every 10 or 20 miles. You should also have enough water with you in order not to dehydrate. Another important thing is to bring glucose and snacks with carbohydrates, because cycling can be pretty exhausting. And dont eat everything at once, but you should divide what you have so that you make a snack-stop at every hour. Cycling is good for diabetics and good luck with it.
