Let's ignite a health revolution!
We're energizing a nation to get brain and heart healthy through the power of the bicycle.
CycleNation is spearheading a variety of high-energy stationary cycling events to advance the mission of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
Every 40 seconds.
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 one of them.
Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States dies of heart disease.
It’s the No. 1 killer - more than all cancers combined. The American Heart Association is aiming to reduce that number by 20 percent by 2020. What will it take? More research. Educating people about living heart-healthy. Advocating for legislation that transforms health in America.
