Despite the challenges of 2020, the New England Parkinson’s Ride stayed the course last September as a Synchronized Ride all around the globe!
Parkinson’s didn’t take the year off and neither did we!
IN 2021 WE HAVE EVERY EXPECTATION THAT WE WILL ONCE AGAIN BE RIDING TOGETHER IN OLD ORCHARD BEACH BUT WILL MAINTAIN THE CYCLING IN SYNC VERSION FOR OUR NEW FRIENDS ACROSS THE COUNTRY & AROUND THE WORLD!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE SIGNED UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTERS, SO YOU ARE READY WHEN REGISTRATION OPENS.
THE LIVE RIDE WILL SURELY SELL OUT FAST! SAVE THE DATE!
SEPTEMBER 11, 2021!
COVID-19 IMPACT STATEMENT
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our plans for 2021 and we are closely monitoring the most recent city, state, regional and national guidance to determine the best way to proceed with our 14th Annual Ride. Our primary concern is, and always will be, the health and well-being of our Ride Family and our host communities. Please check back regularly for updated information.
When Chris Woods, an avid cyclist, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at the age of 41, the mission of the Woods family, with his 73 year old parents, Edna & Bob, leading the charge, was to find a cycling event that raised money specifically for Parkinson’s research. For years Chris had been riding in the 150 mile Diabetes ride and the 150 mile MS ride but had never heard of one for PD. After much research, it became clear that there was nothing in the country, let alone the New England area, so the family decided to organize their own!
