Cycling across Wales over three days isn’t easy for anyone, but for Rod Evans, a 37-year-old type 1 diabetic, this journey is the latest in a long line of charity rides.
Rod cycled 250 miles between September 3 and September 5. His trek took him from the northern community of Aberegele to the southern town of Abergavenny. On days one and two, Rod rode for 90 miles, and then 70 miles on the final day.
“I knew that I was in for a rough ride,” Rod said, but his meticulous management of his type 1 meant he knew exactly what he was doing before, during and after the ride.
