rideATAXIA

rideATAXIA isn’t just a cycling event; it’s a powerful movement. Born from one man’s determination to defy his diagnosis, this program has grown into a vibrant community united by a common goal of finding treatments and cures for FA. Through bike rides of varying distances, rideATAXIA empowers individuals with FA, their families, and supporters to push past limitations and raise crucial funds for research.

Whether you’re an experienced cyclist or simply someone who wants to make a difference, rideATAXIA offers people of all abilities a way to join the movement.
