PEDALING FOR PARKINSON’S

LIVE BETTER

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 of Parkinson’s disease and should not be touted as such, but there is compelling evidence to show that it does make a real difference for many who try it.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Participants must:

  • Be age 30-75 years
  • Be diagnosed with Idiopathic PD
  • Complete and submit a signed consent form and medical clearance
  • Agree to periodically monitor progress
