Cycling Provides a Break for Some With Parkinson’s
Published: March 31, 2010

Dr. Bastiaan R. Bloem of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center in the Netherlands thought he had seen it all in his years of caring for patients with Parkinson’s disease. But the 58-year-old man who came to see him recently was a total surprise.

A video from the Netherlands of a 58-year-old man with a 10-year history of Parkinson’s disease showed him freezing in his movements after a few steps. Yet he was able to ride a bicycle.

The man had had Parkinson’s disease for 10 years, and it had progressed until he was severely affected. Parkinson’s, a neurological disorder in which some of the brain cells that control movement die, had made him unable to walk. He trembled and could walk only a few steps before falling. He froze in place, his feet feeling as if they were bolted to the floor.

But the man told Dr. Bloem something amazing: he said he was a regular exerciser — a cyclist, in fact — something that should not be possible for patients at his stage of the disease, Dr. Bloem thought.

“He said, ‘Just yesterday I rode my bicycle for 10 kilometers’ — six miles,” Dr. Bloem said. “He said he rides his bicycle for miles and miles every day.”

Bud, as usual, made the ride absolutely a great experience. If you need someone with a chaintool close to the end of the ride make sure Bud is there. He patched together Mike Bogdan's chain about 4 miles from end. For those of you that think casual means lollygagging, this was listed as a causal ride, but we ended up at 13+mph. It was also great to meet Isais. Always good to put a face with a number of BBCTalk stories. Hope Isais gets home before dark.
Thanks Bud for another great ride.
