Start a Class

Though there are more than 110 Pedaling For Parkinson's classes throughout the country, we're not quite everywhere yet.  In fact, you might discover your nearest option is hundreds of miles away. 


Chances are good there are many people in your area that would like to get involved.  Maybe you can help start a Pedaling For Parkinson's program in your neck-of-the-woods?​ 

It's simple.  To start a Pedaling For Parkinson's class, you'll need to do the following:

  • Obtain the PFP License Agreement

    • An agreement is required to license the use of the program name and logo, protecting the trademarks, and ensuring support from PFP.  
  • Class Leaders

    • A class leader is required by PFP and in most cases by the host facility. Lead instructors should be familiar with indoor cycling, equipment, and cycling in general. No specific PFP certification is required. Instructors are asked to view the videos on the Instructors page. Leaders should cultivate substitutes to ensure classes continue on the regular schedule when the lead instructor is unavailable.  

  • Participants 

    • Of course, once you’ve got all the pieces in place, you’ll need participants!  

  • Get the Word Out

    • “If you build it, they will come.”  Though this is most often the case, they need to know you're out there. Download the Start-up Guide and once licensed, we'll add your site to the PFP Locations map. You'll also find valuable resources to help you get things going here.
