Bike MS Is The Ride Of A Lifetime!

Ride for a cause—Bike MS!For cyclists and all those seeking a personal challenge and a world free of multiple sclerosis, Bike MS is the premier fundraising cycling series in the nation. With a choice of more than 100 rides across the US all run by individual society chapters, your Bike MS experience is full of local flavor and sure to be a ride of camaraderie and great memories.

The purpose of each ride is to raise money for multiple-sclerosis research and other services supported by the National MS Society. The rides are generally 150 miles, though they can be as short as 3 miles (for a family fun ride) or as long as 250 miles over five days. The goal is to pull the whole community together by gathering support from local businesses, elected officials, residents and people living with MS.

When you participate in Bike MS, 79 cents on every dollar goes directly to helping those with MS and here's what your dollars do:

  • Support research and projects to fight the cause of MS and to find better treatments and a cure
  • Educate people with MS through publications, seminars and conferences, and at-home teleconferences
  • Provide direct support and financial assistance for the FDA-approved medications, medical equipment, counseling services, respite, care management, college scholarships and other emergency assistance
  • Support emotional health and physical well-being through a network of self-help groups, a peer support telephone program, wellness programs and grants, exercise classes, retreats and more
  • Reconnect families affected by MS through family and social programs, couples’ retreats, kids’ camps, and other family support programs
  • Stimulate change in public policy by coordinating a statewide and nationwide Government Relations Committee and provide training and support to our constituents about issues impacting people with MS

As a great personal achievement, Bike MS is both a weekend-long and lifelong opportunity to make a difference in your own life, and in the world. Sign up and give your cycling even more purpose!
