In the United States, someone has a stroke every 40 seconds – and it’s the fifth leading cause of death. Knowing the symptoms of a stroke and getting treatment quickly are the most important factors for survival. High blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoking are major risk factors – and almost half of all Americans have at least one of them.
Just as often, someone in the United States dies of heart disease. It’s the number one killer – more than all cancers combined.
CycleNation is a movement to empower the nation to use cycling to help Americans get brain and heart healthy while raising funds to continue vital community programs and support research to end stroke and heart disease. Stop the cycle. Start the ride. Ride the revolution.
