Dutch dude with Parkinson's can't walk - rides his bike!

From BikeRadar, a remarkable heartwarming story. Maybe it IS all about the bike....

Amazing what happens on a bicycle. Floyd Landis, winner of the Tour de France (disqualified after French uber-labs discovered testosterone in his blood) (imagine that) couldn't walk due to a messed up hip.

But Floyd could ride. Damn, could Floyd ride! After the Tour de France was over he had the hip replaced and . . . so far . . . all is well.

Thanks for sharing this. I have passed the article along to my high school friend in Iowa who is a cyclist with Parkinson's (at age 38).
