Everyone involved in the production of this documentary has Parkinson's in their family. And because of this passion and interest in raising awareness a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this film will go to benefit Parkinson's research. Thank you in advance for your purchase and great support. When Larry Smith was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, he cried on the way home to tell his family. Twenty years later, this retired police captain and successful bakery owner is done crying. Once a bike enthusiast, Larry found balance increasingly difficult. He now rides a reclining cycle, a familiar and beloved sight in his small South Dakota home town. One day Larry decides to do one big thing to empower others like him and raise awareness: he will ride his bike across the state of South Dakota. RIDE WITH LARRY is his heroic journey with family and supporters, raising money and inspiring countless patients and their families. The ride becomes an event, and the road has many perils. But this is not just a diary of that amazing trip. It is also an inspiring look at the man who embraces each day while facing such challenges and the love he spreads along the way. This is indeed the ride of Larry's life, and you will be glad you joined him for it. —C.R.

Medical Marijuana...I am hesitant to write the words mostly because of the stigma. Because he had the courage to try it...I tried it, as well. The medicine works very well for me and life is quite a bit better. Larry is a retired police captain, I am retired minister/pastor...some support and others tear down. I have been lazy and this documentary exposed it to...me...so now I am working out!
Five stars are not enough!
I encourage anyone who is brave enough to learn about the ravaging effects of Parkinson's to watch this film. It is brilliantly created.
In addition to being a really inspiring, powerful and emotional story, Ride with Larry is informative. The documentary filmmakers did a great job gathering different experts so you will not only fall in love with Larry and his wife, but you will also learn tons of information about Parkinson's Disease, alternative options and the importance of exercise.
