A new class of cycling for Parkinson’s will take place Aug. 1 at the Beaumont YMCA.

The class, specifically designed for those with Parkinson’s, will take place at 2 p.m., every Tuesday and Friday. In order to participate you must have a form completed by your doctor.

The class is free, courtesy of the Lexington Area Parkinson’s Support Group.

To participate, contact Elaine at keith284@twc.com or by calling 859-277-1040 for the medical clearance form for your doctor to complete.

When you have the completed form, contact Elaine for further instructions at which time she will have the YMCA arrange for you to have an assessment by their staff. After the assessment, Elaine will guide you in getting a chest strap that connects to the heart monitor on the bike.
