Bike riders in San Diego will Pedal for Parkinson’s with riders from around the world on Sunday, September 27, showing their support for leading research that can eliminate the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
During Pedal for Parkinson's, riders will have the choice of a 5-mile, 25-mile or 50-mile ride, which starts at Revolution Bike Shop, located at 235 S. Hwy 101 in Solana Beach. Three spinning classes will also be available at the start/finish line by reservation as an alternative. Each spin session will last 45 minutes. The entry fee for all three rides and the spin class is $45 each. A jersey is $70 extra, shorts are $60 more and t-shirts are an extra $10.
To date, riders from the countries of Australia, Germany and Canada are planning their own events to join San Diego riders and Pedal for Parkinson’s. This event is a fundraiser for Summit4StemCell.org, supporting a non-embryonic stem-cell research project currently underway at the Scripps Clinic and Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla.
