Walter Reich 70 yrs young is cycling 8000km across Canada for people whom have Parkinson's and their Caregivers. This ride is for them.
Walter and his wife Regula recently retired from owning The Quiet Bay Log Motel & Cafe in Magnetawan Ontario. Originally from Switzerland. Canada has been home 24yrs..
As cycling enthusiast, Walter has always wanted to cycle across Canada. The dream began at 10a.m. April 12th 2019 in Tofino BC on Mackenzie Beach, with Walter dipping his bike wheel of his bike in the Pacific Ocean.
Regula , Walter's wife is driving their Giant RV.
Walter wants to be an advocate for those suffering with Parkinson's Disease. A disease not spoken about often and not understood, he wants to change that. He wants to hear peoples story that suffer with Parkinson's and Caregivers whom take care of their loved ones.
"I encourage people to tell me their journey with Parkinson's when I travel across the country.
THIS RIDE IS FOR ALL OF YOU! THIS IS YOUR ADVENTURE!"
