Learn to Loop with Erik!

Hey there,

It's a lot. I know. I was there.

I’m Erik and I was sitting in your seat not too long ago. Loop is intimidating but not if you've got a guide.

My family is pretty passionate about this community since we have been a part of it since 1940 - I inherited this disease over ten years ago.

Loop and I biked over 1,000 miles with Annalisa van den Bergh from Los Angeles, California out to Sante Fe, New Mexico; Loop made it to the peak of the Chilkoot Pass alongside 20 other T1Ds in The Yukon; Loop is in my Rhone running shorts for NYC marathon training with Beyond Type 1; Loop keeps me steady while training with Scott Johnson for the JDRF 100 mile Death Valley Ride. Trust me - we can use it for almost any situation you throw at it.

So many families I meet want to set up this system but cannot make it through the documentation. That is why this course exists - you get a guide.

My passion for this system comes from the fact that I truly believe in it. Loop is the only system that matches me. It's unique enough to match you, too. That is why I believe in Loop.

You have a lifetime to make a decision. There's no time like now.

We have this disease for a lifetime. It's time to try something new.
