These days, John is still riding, although now he rides with a larger purpose in mind. After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2003, he founded Ride for a Reason (rfar.org), a charity to raise funds to research cures for both Parkinson’s disease and cancer. “[Being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease] made me realize the important thing in life is not money or tangibles; it brought me closer to my kids and other people. It really, truly has been a blessing.”
John knows that bicycles can make a difference, not only in the fight against tragic diseases but also in our daily lives. “Riding is a great way to plug into your kids, have fun and benefit from health and fitness,” he tells us, and with the current rise in gas prices, it’s easy to see why it’s a good idea to hit the road on two wheels instead of four.
