Daytime Curing FA

Posted: Updated:

Kyle Bryant was diagnosed with FA at age seventeen and found that as the disease progressed he had to give up the sports so interwoven in his life.  When Kyle's FA had progressed to a point where it became unsafe for him to continue riding his bike, he put a stop to the loss of the activity he cherished. He took back control, purchased a recumbent trike, and resumed his riding with passion.

In 2007 Kyle founded Ride Ataxia with a 2,500 mile 59 day ride from San Diego, CA to Memphis TN. The goal of the ride was to raise awareness and much needed research funds for FA, a disease that has no treatment, no cure, no hope…until now.

In 2009 Kyle became the Spokesperson for the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) in their mission to cure FA. With Kyle as the program director, Ride Ataxia has become FARA's Marquee fundraising event with challenging yet family friendly bike rides all over the USA.
