Giant Bicycles approached Brian in early July of 2021, about doing a film on how the "bicycle" changed his life. A short 16 minute movie was the result of that initial conversation between Brian and Giant. Brian remarked, "I am so proud of what we all have achieved with producing this little film together. I pray that it brings hope to others in the world who need it. It has been both an honor, and a privilege to be selected by Giant for this life changing opportunity. Thank you, all!"
Plan A Films, the company chosen to film and produce the piece for Giant Bicycles, is currently in the middle of producing a documentary film based on Brian's life & book, entitled "Not Afraid to Fall - The Brian Hall Story" Stay tuned for more details, COMING SOON...
The Image above is of Brian pedaling up the 22 percent grade Auto Road right before summiting Mount Washington in the MWARBH Race, August 20, 2022. Brian's time this year was, 1:11:57.

Thank you so much, Giant!

Brian may have Parkinson's disease, but he refuses to let it stop, or define him. In 2018 and 2019, he raced his bicycle up New Englands highest peak, Mount Washington in New Hampshire.
"I am strongly recommending this book to nurses, health care providers, medical students, and physicians at all levels. The book reminds us that medical illnesses and their treatments have many effects on patients well beyond our office, the hospital, and the doctor-patient relationship. While it can be difficult, if the medical professions do not take these effects into consideration, we cannot fully treat the whole patient."
"Family and friends of patients with any chronic illnesses will also benefit from reading this book. We often tend to withdraw from those with illnesses that are difficult for us to comprehend and cannot relate. Brian shows us how important those family members and friends are in his struggles. Their ability to sympathize, understand, and assist are crucial to his or her battles to live a more satisfactory and productive life."
"Finally, this book deserves to not only be read but to become a guide for those with any chronic illness, not just Parkinson’s disease. It is not how Brian responds to his specific illness but that he does respond. Each patient will have their own specific problems to face. Brian shows that with grit, determination, and help from others rewards are obtainable. He encourages others to find their own compromise with their own illness and to struggle on!"
