Parkinson’s Man Completes 3300 Mile Cycle Trip

October 22, 2012

A 40 year-old man with Parkinson’s has completed a 3,300-mile endurance challenge across the US.

Alex Flynn set himself a series of challenges, after being diagnosed in 2007, hoping to raise awareness of the condition.

Starting in Santa Monica, California, his latest challenge saw him climb the 4,421-metre peak of Mount Whitney, run 135 miles through Death Valley, and kayak a portion of Lake Eerie.

He completed the rest of the journey by bike, over the course of 36 days. BBC One’s ‘The One Show’ followed his journey.
