Cycling is less affected than walking in freezers of gait We recently described two patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) who presented with severe freezing of gait (FOG), but who also manifested a remarkably preserved ability to ride a bicycle.1 2 Following these publica-tions, we have been approached by many patients who reported a similar discrepancy between severe gait difficulties and an often striking ability to ride their bicycle. Stimu-lated by these anecdotes, we carried out a semistructured interview with 53 consec-utive outpatients with PD (diagnosed according to the UK Brain Bank Criteria)
