Riding an indoor, stationary bicycle has been shown to reduce Parkinson's disease symptoms by as much as 35%!
And, it's something almost anyone with PD can do at a Pedaling for Parkinson's class near you.
Participants ride for 1 hour - a 10 minute warm up at 60 RPM, followed by 40 minutes at 80 to 90 RPM, and a 10 minute cool down.

During a typical hot and humid mid-America summer, Dr. Jay Alberts guided his tandem bike across Iowa along with thousands of others that turned out for the 2003 Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI, pronounced: rag br-i ). On the back seat, a long time friend accompanied Alberts, and as the days wore on, they noticed something peculiar. She reported feeling good — like she didn't have Parkinson's! More
Denver UPDATED Sep 23, 2021 - With many recreation and fitness facilities across the country offering limited availability or still closed, Pedaling for Parkinson's (PFP) is expanding online options to help people living with Parkinson’s remain active and bridge the time when we can return to our favorite PFP cycling studio. The big question is, how much longer will that be and what will PFP look like when that happens?
Presently, there are two online options - Mon, Wed and Fri, 11:30AM to 12:30PM CENTRAL TIME and Tue, Thu and Sat, 8:00AM to 10:00AM CENTRAL TIME.
We are looking to introduce more options at different times to create more options for participants. If you are interested in leading an online program, email Tom.
