2021 NEW ENGLAND PARKINSON’S RIDE
CYCLING IN SYNC!
2020 was an unbelievably challenging year but we were determined to stay the course. If Parkinson’s wasn’t taking the year off, then neither would we. We set an aggressive goal to raise $1 million for research toward a cure and to get cyclists from all walks of life, and all around the globe, Cycling In Sync with us. Incredibly, not only did we raise $1.15 million but people from all 50 states plus Canada, England, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand and Singapore rode together on September 12th with one common goal…to put an end to Parkinson’s Disease!
Ride here, Ride there, Ride everywhere!
This year, on September 11, 2021 we will continue this new tradition, with cyclists of all ages and abilities joining us from their own beautiful place. You can participate by viewing our live streamed start with those who are riding in Old Orchard Beach or ride completely on your own time. Whether you ride as a team or as an individual, you will be part of us and all that our Ride Family is determined to do to keep research moving forward!
- 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

PICTURE & VIDEO SHARING
While each of you are out on your own rides, we hope that you will snap pictures along the way so we can share them throughout the day. Some of you may even want to share a video of your own start, which you can get to us in a few ways: 1) Simply post it on your own Facebook or Instagram page and tag us @neparkinsonsride and use #CyclingInSync. 2) Send us a private message on Facebook with your videos and photos and we will share them to our page. 3) Download the free Dropbox App and follow these directions and share to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will share videos and pictures throughout the day and then weave them together for a celebration video to be shared at a later date!
The distance you choose to ride doesn’t matter. Just get out there, get some fresh air, and have fun!
Remember it’s not where we ride, or how far we ride, it’s why we ride!
Not a cyclist? Don’t worry, you can walk, run, or dance! You can do anything, just do it with the right heart and in unison with us on September 11th!
