PFP - Making a Difference for People Living with Parkinsons
in 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!
Jay Alberts PhD leads a virtual Pedaling for Parkinson's class, answering questions while taking the class through his favorite places, Iowa and Italy. Having observed the benefits cycling has for people with Parkinson's, his ongoing research at the Cleveland Clinic is helping thousands with Parkinson's reduce symptoms and live better.
When selecting the best indoor stationary bike for you, there are essentially three options: a traditional bike on a trainer stand; a sophisticated, computerized in-home fitness machine; and a plethora of bikes in between.
Sadly, we learned the passing of our friend, Bill Hinkle. An avid supporter of Pedaling for Parkinson's, Bill joined our PFP RAGBRAI Team on many occasions. Diagnosed with Parkinsons in 2003, Bill never let the disease or his battle define him. He was a man of character and a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. We will miss him.
