Your Impact

rideATAXIA started as a crazy idea that is now empowering thousands and changing the outlook on research for a rare, life-shortening disease. In 2014, rideATAXIA welcomed over 2,300 participants, and raised over $ 850,000 in support of FARA’s mission to treat and cure FA.

 

 

In late 2009, rideATAXIA became a program of the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA), offering single day challenging and family fun bike rides at locations all across the USA.  rideATAXIA has served as a unique destination event for families living with FA and other movement disorders to join with researchers, pharmaceutical representatives, and area cyclists in the ride to cure FA. From all corners of the country, people gather to rideATAXIA events for friendship, camaraderie, and the opportunity to engage new communities, moving forward together towards treatments and a cure.

 

 

 

 

Initiated by Kyle Bryant in 2007, rideATAXIA has raised invaluable awarenss for FA and over $3 million in support of FA research grants.

Bryant’s inspiration spurs from his diagnosis at age 17 and the discovery that he could travel long distances under his own power on a recumbent tricycle. Fueled by the passion to do more for himself and the FA community, Bryant and his family completed 2,500 mile bike ride from San Diego to Memphis to raise awareness and funds for FA research. Over the next two years, Kyle, his family and a growing number of cyclists made the journey on bikes and trikes from Sacramento to Las Vegas and Portland to Seattle. That was just the beginning of rideATAXIA.
