Spokes Fighting Strokes

Spokes Fighting Strokes Clinic & Test Ride

Do you have poor balance? Would you like to be outside exercising, having fun but cannot ride a regular bike anymore? Would you like to improve your health conditions, recover from affects from a stroke, Parkinson's or other health issues? Riding a Recumbent Trike might be for you!!

Dan Zimmerman

Dan Zimmerman suffered a life-altering stroke in 2005 caused by Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT). Though recovery was difficult and took a long time, he is now able to do many things that were previously considered unattainable. Dan is now the founder of Spokes Fighting Strokes, a 501c organization, whose mission is to reach every stroke survivor and show them that recovery is possible! Through their Spokes Adaptive Cycling clinics in Arizona and Colorado, they help stroke survivors gain independence, ability, hope, and freedom.

Dan is now on his 1UP Tour 2022 across the US and is going to be visiting Hostel Shoppe July 14-22nd. In addition to being an exhibitor at our annual Pedal Point Rally on July 15 & 16, Dan and his crew will be holding clinics and test rides July 19 and 21st! Dan has a trailer with 15 recumbent trikes all adapted in various configurations to show people that if there is a will there is a way to get out and ride!

Cycling, Dan says, has improved his health and more importantly, given him a purpose in life. He wants to raise awareness of HHT, the disease that killed his brother and mother and is present in Dan and his younger son. He also wants to raise awareness of stroke prevention and inspire other stroke survivors to fight back against the disease. He is eager to present to stroke survivors, folks with traumatic brain injuries (TBI), Parkinson's and their support teams.
Hostel Shoppe will provide refreshments and post clinic snacks.
