What do you do after cycling across Canada with Parkinson's?
You keep the conversation going! The next journey for Spinning Wheels is our podcast: Spinning Wheels, Parkinson’s Conversations with Jim Here.
Watch or listen as people share their experiences with PD. We talk to people diagnosed with PD, who work with PWP and who are trying to medically help PWP. It’s a whole Parkinson’s scene we have going on! And we always figure out a way to see the positive while acknowledging the challenges.
We are just starting out and really want to provide a podcast that brings insight and positivity to PD. Please like, share and comment (on what you like, what you think we could do differently or what you would like to see).
Host: Jim Redmond
Engineer: Mike Loghrin

What we DID
Canada is a big country. It is home to over 100,000 people living with Parkinson’s disease, 9 in 10 of which suffer in silence, isolation, or without the support of a knowledgeable organization or community.
Why we DID it
You have probably heard of Parkinson’s Disease. You may even know people who suffer from it. Get used to it, as Parkinson’s disease is the world’s fastest growing neurological condition, set to double in number by 2040.
Who We Are
Friends and Family, Old and New
We are dedicating this spot to the friends and family we have met up with along the journey!
It does not include everyone but it includes a lot!
