Pedaling for Parkinson's (P4P)

Schenectady YMCA

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 described as such, but there is compelling evidence that it can make a real difference for many
who try it.
We do know that fast-paced cycling is changing the lives of increasing numbers of participants who, before this, had no hope beyond medication and eventually surgery to slow the progression of their disease.
