Why Jack Rides a Catrike 559 to Help With Cerebellar Ataxia

Hi. I'm Jack. I am 26 yrs old. In 2020, I was diagnosed with a progressive neurodegenerative disease, cerebellar ataxia, which has already significantly impacted my balance, coordination, swallowing, and speech. I cannot drive and have had to give up most of the things I used to enjoy. However, I discovered I could ride a recumbent trike and a new world opened up. I started with a few laps around my local park on a Catrike Villager. Many miles later, I updated to a Catrike 559.

I got my mom hooked on recumbents as well. She got her first Catrike Villager from Utah Trikes and moved to an Azub T-tris 26 to try and keep up with me.

I like to help people, and I have come up with an idea to purchase trikes for other young people with this disease. In order to raise funds for this, my mom and I will be riding 1500 miles from Maine to Ohio in August and September and ending up at Cycle-Con in Xenia. Maybe we will see you there.

Please follow our journey here and be sure to reach out if you would like to join us on any part of our ride.
