Pedaling for Parkinson's

Reduce your symptoms and be in community!

Pedaling a bicycle may change the life of someone with Parkinson's disease. Research conducted at the Cleveland clinic showed an average of 35% of 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 for 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.

Participants must:
-Be age 30-75
-Be diagnosed with Idiopathic Pd
-Complete and submit a signed consent form and medical clearance
-Agree to periodically monitor progress

There is no cost to participate with a medical referral for the first 8 weeks. The program is ongoing and continued participation is free for YMCA members and $25 for community participants.

Northshore Family YMCA, 11811 NE 195th St. Bothell, WA 98011
