Pedal and Roll

The mission of Pedal and Roll for Parkinson’s is to encourage people with PD to live well through education and structured opportunities for exercise.

Liz Ogren was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2007 after several years of subtle yet remarkable changes that were odd for a “young” active person. Her family convinced her to get off the couch and start biking and walking.

She founded Pedal and Roll For Parkinson’s in spring 2011. The inaugural event took place on September 24, 2011 at Cleary Lake Park in Prior Lake.

Her goal is to organize and motivate other people with Parkinson’s to get off the couch and “Pedal and Roll for Parkinson’s”. We hold bicycling events, weekly group bike rides, and Nordic walks. We travel to communities in greater Minnesota to share the benefits of exercise. And we have a bike “lending library” at Extra Space Storage in St Louis Park.
