The Sub-5 Ride for Parkinson’s – Sunday, September 7, 2014

The annual Sub-5 Ride for Parkinson’s is a life-changing event for those who take pride in their personal accomplishment and create hope for those afflicted with Parkinson’s disease.

If you’re a serious road cyclist there are 2 options for you to participate in our 5th Annual powerhouse event raising funds for cutting-edge Parkinson’s research.

The Sub-5 Ride – 100 Miles in 5 Hours

The featured event, is a timed, 100-mile ride. Competitive cyclists are challenged to participate in teams to complete a 100 mile course in less than 5 hours. The course record of 4 hours, 29 seconds was set by Mike Peters  in 2013. The Sub-5/100 Miler is limited to 300 riders.

The Sub-5 Ride – 62 Miles

For serious cyclists who enjoy riding in smaller groups or alone, this year’s event also features a Timed Metric Century (62 Miles).  The Sub-5/62 also offers shorter distances for those who wish to support our efforts on behalf of Parkinson’s and are more casual riders. The Sub-5/62 Miler is limited to 125 riders.
