New England Parkinson’s Ride

Spring is in the air and it’s time to make your plans.
Will you be Riding In Person or Cycling In Sync for the
14th Annual Ride?


As we continue to navigate the ever changing world that the pandemic has created, we have made the decision to limit our Ride in Old Orchard Beach to the first 1,000 cyclists.
Though we fully intend to make the experience as memorable as in years past, some changes will be necessary as we travel the road to a responsible restart.
Here’s what you can expect:
  • A mask will be provided with your Ride Packet, to ensure compliance with state and federal guidelines at the time of the ride
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available
  • Additional staggered starts will occur within each ride distance
  • Outside vendors, already versed in safety protocols, will provide post ride food
  • Showers will not be available
  • There will be no children’s area with bounce houses
  • Sponsor Booths will be spread out in order to safely provide valuable information
  • Extra areas will be available to maintain social distance, both pre and post ride
  • If more adaptations are necessary, we will update on our website and via email
Most importantly, you can count on an incredible sense of comradery
as our Ride Family reunites in the fight for a cure!


In 2020 we expanded our virtual ride component, re-branding it “Cycling In Sync”. Not only was it inspiring and incredibly successful but it introduced us to friends and families who could not have ridden with us otherwise. They have become an important part of our Ride Family and will continue to be an integral part of our Ride going forward.
Whether you joined us for the first time from afar or are a long-time rider who can’t participate in Maine this year, we truly hope that you will stay the course in support of the cause that is so near and dear to all of our hearts.
  • There is no minimum fundraising requirement for virtual riders
  • All participants who register by July 15th will receive an official 2021 New England Parkinson’s Ride t-shirt and mask
  • Registrations for Cycling In Sync will not be limited
It doesn’t matter where you ride, it matters why you ride!
