Spinning Wheels Tour
Canada is a big country. It is home to over 100,000 people living with Parkinson’s disease, 9 in 10 of which suffer in silence, isolation, or without the support of a knowledgeable organization or community. Starting in June 2022, we aim to cross our big country by bicycle to meet as many of these people as possible to personally deliver this message: get moving to stay moving.
We start In Victoria, British Columbia and ride east through every Canadian province, and hundreds of cities and towns along the way. Our route is approximately 8,000 km, and we expect to average 125 km a day, six days a week for approximately three months. Our Spinning Wheels Tour team will include two riders with Parkinson’s Disease, as well as two ride-along supporters to keep things moving. Along the way, we will be meeting with people whose lives are touched by Parkinson’s, and encourage them to get moving with us, get engaged in support communities, and to set up their own group athletics.
We are not athletes, just people with the resolve to do what it takes to live well with this disease, and to encourage others..
Along the way, we hope to hear these words, “If they can do it, I can too.”
