Just got the word that I am going to be able to ride the Tour de Cure as a “Red Rider” which means I have Diabetes….or more accurately I used to have Type 2 diabetes until I started cycling my butt off and lost a whole gaggle of weight. I think I will bring a sharpie marker and scribble out the “I Ride With Diabetes…” to “I beat Diabetes Like a Rented Stepchild” when they give me my red jersey. What do you guys think?

How about “I beat diabetes like a red jersey’d stepchild”
Wear it proudly my friend! You’ve earned the right.
Some other suggestions for de-facing the red jersey are:
“I beat Diabetes Like It Owed Me Money”
“I beat Diabetes Like It Scuffed My Doc Martens”
