'Cycle Ataxia' is a Charity Cycle set up to raise funds for a cure for Friedreich's Ataxia and for Patient Care.

Cycle Ataxia 2017 will happen on Saturday, 17th June.


My name is Barry Rice and in January 2013 I was diagnosed with Friedreich's Ataxia; a neuro-muscular condition that causes progressive damage to the nervous system, resulting in a range of symptoms including balance & speech impairments, diabetes and heart disease, (to name but a few).

In order to raise funds towards research to find a cure, and also to aid & assist patients living with the condition, I created a charity cycle event called 'Cycle Ataxia'.

Organising an event like this is a massive undertaking and requires the efforts of many dedicated volunteers, to whom I am eternally grateful.

Cycle Ataxia continues to grow in success & popularity and I will endeavor to run and improve the event for as long as I remain capable.

Many thanks for your support.

Funds raised will go towards clinical research in the quest to find a cure or treatment for Friedreich's Ataxia, as well as benefitting poeple living with a genetic Ataxia.
