Shownotes

In Episode 009 of Bike Tour Adventures, I have a sit down with Walter Reich to talk about his bike tour across Canada. At 70 years old, he is still pounding out 100km days while being followed by his wife Regula in the RV. Walter talks about Parkinson's awareness, the importance of early detection, and the need for being active and fit.
