P4P 2020 HAS GONE VIRTUAL!
Recent COVID19 related developments mean that we are not able to gather in person for our 11th annual ride, however, we are still determined to keep Pedaling 4 Parkinson’s! Please join us virtually in our goal to pedal 25,000 miles in the month of June. Register now and Join The Fight against Parkinson’s by logging miles and raising funds to help abolish this disease!
Although the 2020 ride has gone virtual, Pedaling 4 Parkinson’s typically draws hundreds each year to Sweetwater Park in Lone Tree, CO to Join The Fight against Parkinson’s Disease. With multiple distances to choose from, there is a route for participants of all levels. Registered cyclists commit to fundraise for the cause and all money raised benefits The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Whether you’re a cyclist, sponsor, or volunteer, every effort counts. We will likely maintain the virtual component for the 2021 ride to ensure that those unable to attend can still participate, however, we fully expect to be back hosting a live, in-person event next year!
Cycling & Parkinson's
Research shows that bicycling can have tremendous benefits to people with Parkinson’s, well beyond those enjoyed by all cyclists. Vigorous cycling can sometimes reduce symptoms for hours or days afterwards. If you, or someone you know has Parkinson’s, please consider this opportunity to ride again, and help increase awareness of the many benefits of cycling.

The Tandem Bike Project
The Tandem Bike Project is an opportunity for people with Parkinson’s to ride Pedaling 4 Parkinson’s as “stokers” on the back of a tandem bike. We provide the bikes and the “captains” to make it easy for everyone to Join The Fight! Our captains are strong cyclists, capable of providing as much effort as needed to complete the ride. We host numerous aid stations along the route, stocked with snacks and beverages to keep you going.
Unfortunately, with the 2020 ride going virtual, we are not able to host this portion of our annual event this year. However, the Tandem Bike Project will most certainly be back next year when we return to a live, in-person event!
