Garth Evans, a member of the Parkinson's Pedallers riding group in Brisbane, attended a Parkinson's Queensland seminar recently.   Roger Pegoraro gave an interesting presentation on the benefits of exercise for people with parkinsons.  Garth has shared a copy of Roger Pegoraro's presentation.  A PDF copy of the presentation is attached at the end of this article.

This is a really great slide presentation showing how a set of specific exercises can improve the gait, posture and cognnition of people with Parkinson's.

So there's no excuse now..... come and join the Parkinson's Pedallers on their monthly rides - or join a cycling group near you....
