Time to head out on 50k of Boulder County Roads!
Well suited for alternative cycles — recumbents, tadpole trikes, bikes and who knows — maybe you’ll encounter a unicycle or a couple of former Olympic cyclists on a tandem! A great ride for individuals and teams alike! Ideal for people with Parkinson’s, families, support groups, or any mix thereof. Whatever you ride, whatever your ability: It’s time to ride!
Funny thing is, pedaling is therapeutic for people with Parkinson’s. Its amazing to see someone struggling with tremor hop on a bike and ride like the wind. In fact, it was at the RAGBRAI in 2003 that Dr Jay Alberts discovered the connection between pedaling and Parkinson’s disease. Clinical studies have shown improvements in motor function as much as 35%!
There are three Aid Stations featuring great music, snacks and beverages to recharge, regroup or just relax for a few hours with friends!
