Did anyone else wonder if this was too amazing to be true (particularly when it dropped on April 1st)? The New York Times reports on a man with end-stage Parkinson’s Disease– a debilitating neurological condition brought to greater public awareness by advocates like Michael J. Fox– who rides a bike. But not who just can ride a bike. He rides, according to the doctor, “miles and miles.”
From the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s website, there seems to be other support for bicycling as good therapy for Parkinson’s, including a short piece on tandem riding.
The NYT video is pretty inspiring. Another score for those who think that bicycling is magic.
