Basics and Beyond

Whether you were recently diagnosed, going through transitions as your symptoms change, or are a family member of someone with Parkinson’s disease, this lecture will help you piece together an understanding of this complex neurological condition.

90,000 people in the US live with this disease and every 6 minutes someone receives this diagnosis. Worldwide disability and death due to Parkinson’s is rising faster than any other neurological disorder. This new data determined that the prevalence is nearly twice what was previously reported.

Pedal Support for Parkinson’s

This Father’s Day Weekend we invite you (along with your favorite ride-along crew) to join us on the Banks-Vernonia Trail! With several distance options to choose from, this is a ride for the novice as well as experienced cyclists. A hosted lunch (included with your $35 registration fee) will be served to riders between 11:30am and 1:00pm at the Anderson Park Pavillion in Vernonia, OR.

(For those who hope to just join us for lunch and to cheer on riders… there is a lunch only registration option!)

Start in Vernonia, or make the lunch stop your turn around point, we look forward to seeing you on the trail. PeDal Support encourages people with Parkinson’s to ride for the fun of it and experience the benefits of cycling with this disease.
