PEDALING FOR PARKINSON’S™

Pedaling a bicycle may change the life of someone with Parkinson’s disease. Research conducted at the Cleveland Clinic showed a 35% reduction in symptoms by the simple act of pedaling a bicycle at a rapid pace -optimally 80-90 revolutions per  minute.
 
Fast pedaling is not a cure for Parkinson’s disease, but there is compelling evidence to show that it does make a real difference for many who try it. We do know that fast-paced cycling is  changing the lives of increasing numbers of participants who, before this, had no hope beyond medication and eventually surgery to slow the progression to their disease.
