Are you thinking of participating in a bike ride in 2018 to raise money in the fight against ankylosing spondylitis? Get involved by signing up to one of the cycling events listed below or create your own cycling challenge like NASS supporter Helgi Olafson. Cycling can be a good form of exercise for people with AS. It can improve general fitness and stamina. Regular cycling can reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke. It can also boost your mood and keep your weight under control. If you are new to cycling, or need some advice, check out our Cycling with AS page. You can also email us for more information. For a limited time only, you can also get your hands on our custom made NASS cycling jerseys with all proceeds going to support people living with AS.
