Parkinson's Disease is a chronic, nervous system disorder affecting the brain, with subtle symptoms that get worse over time. Recent efforts have resulted in dramatic improvements in the treatment of those symptoms, but there is no known cure yet. Bicycling has recently been found to be an effective treatment for many people dealing with the rigors of Parkinson's Disease, which makes it a perfect activity for those who want to help.
