The 13th Annual New England Parkinson’s Ride was held on
September 12, 2020….as a Synchronized Ride all around the globe!
PARKINSON’S DIDN’T TAKE THE YEAR OFF AND NEITHER DID WE!
Ride here, Ride there, Ride everywhere!
We did it! This year we set our goal to not only raise as much money as possibly for research toward a cure but to have cyclists Cycling In Sync across the entire country and beyond. On September 12, 2020 people from all 50 states plus Canada, England, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand and Singapore rode, with one common goal…to put an end to Parkinson’s Disease!

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!
