Pedaling for Parkinson;s

Pedaling a bicycle may change the life of someone with Parkinson 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 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.
