Bike4parkinson is an initiative focused on raising more atention for Parkinson's disease en raising money for widespreak research. We want to start a movement to show the people around us that there is a huge necessity to fight for a cure and to support the people struck by parkinson's.

Furthermore we want to emphasize the importance of sporting and moving in general. Our main goal is to contribute to finding a cure for this disease.
