It's all about balance, grasshopper, ~anonymous Bicycle Zen Master.

I guess I'm guaranteed from dementia, thanks to 2.5 languages I can make myself understood with and to riding my bicycle!

The video from this article - here - features a 58-year-old Dutchman with severe Parkinson's who can barely stand, only manage a slow shuffle and almost falls with hands shaking uncontrollably can ride a bike a block and back and hops off at the end.

It is truly amazing.

Thanks for sharing, Larry.

Great info, happy to read.
