Our Story

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!
