What's Cool In Road Cycling

Sufferlandria Benefits Phinney Foundation

Cyclists who compete this month in a nine-day mythical stage race will be helping out the Davis Phinney Foundation.

The “Tour of Sufferlandria” is an indoor cycling event where riders complete nine consecutive days of videos produced by The Sufferfest. With a $10 donation, participants are eligible for the Tour’s list of special prizes, which include a road bike from BMC and autographed items from several professional cyclists. BMC Racing Team’s Taylor Phinney will serve as official starter for the event, which begins Saturday.

The Davis Phinney Foundation was created in 2004 to help people with Parkinson’s disease live well today. Its major initiatives include: the Every Victory Counts® manual; The Victory Summit® symposia series; the Living Well Challenge™ educational webinar series; the “Parkinson’s Exercise Essentials” video and the funding of research focused on quality of life therapies.

The Sufferfest has a passionate following of “Sufferlandrians” in 70 counties. To date, the Tour of Sufferlandria has raised more than $165,000 during its four editions.
