A team of filmmakers, who all have loved ones with Parkinson’s, are creating the first film for the Parkinson’s community, by the Parkinson’s community that will help spark an international movement for research, awareness, and inspiration.
The film, Ride with Larry, follows Larry Smith, a retired police captain, now beloved small town baker, as he rides his bike across South Dakota, pushing his limits and expanding the boundary of possibilities for those with Parkinson’s disease. Weaved amongst the progress of Larry’s ride is an intimate portrait of the every day battle against Parkinson’s, the great minds working to find a cure, and the community love of Vermillion, SD that makes joined together to give Larry Smith one great ride.
The Exercycle Company (makers of the Theracycle) is a proud sponsor of Ride with Larry (including having furnished this Theracycle for Larry to work out on). We hope that readers of the Theracycle blog and others will join us in supporting this important film by contributing to the next state in its creation…
