News: Cycling Ovecomes Parkinson's

Well all of us here at the shop know that cycling can do wonders for the body and mind, but can it offer a temporary reprieve from an already advanced physical disability? Apparently so, at least in some cases.

We stumbled across this recent article in the New York Times that documents a 58 year man who suffers from advanced Parkinson's and is virtually immobile when unaided but can get on a bike and ride it flawlessly.

Take the time to click on the link to the article; it's an interesting, quick read.
