Interesting article (with video) regarding a patient with Parkinson's that can hardly walk, but is able to jump on a bike and ride no probs: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/01/health/01parkinsons.html

My father was just like that until totally incapacitated by Parkinon's - used to get on the old viscount racer & do a few km's but couldn't walk across the road.
