We cross the finish line in Windsor this Sunday! 

Here is a list of important details you need to know:

Registration & Fundraising
Pre-registration is now closed.  

You may still register at the ride for $35 plus the $125 fundraising minimum.

All pre-registered cyclists have until June 30th to complete their $125 minimum fundraising. 

Caution on Route
Please be aware that the following roads are under repair and have issues such as potholes, water drainage issues and loose pebbles/sand. Proceed with extra care.
 

•Colson Road in Suffield (on 50 & 100 Mile) 

•Ratley Road  in Suffield (on 50 & 100 Mile) 

•First Half of Spruce Street in Suffield (50 & 100 mile) 

•South Water Street in East Windsor (on 100 Mile Only)

There will not be a traffic officer this year, as in year’s past at the intersection of Canal and Rt 20. in Granby. 

There is however a flashing red on Canal, which is equivalent to a stop sign.  Right of way would be granted to Rt. 20 traffic as those lanes have a flashing yellow.

Bike MS will take you further than you’ve ever gone before. It’s not the miles that matter — it’s the unforgettable journey. Join us for an event that’s more than a ride — it’s anticipation, camaraderie, personal accomplishment, and the knowledge that you’re changing lives… making every mile that much sweeter.

The routes feature rest stops every 10 to 15 miles. Rest stops are stocked with water, sports drinks, sandwiches, granola bars, gluten free snacks, and have rest rooms available. We also offer mechanical support at each rest stop and support vehicles out on the route which will maintain contact with emergency vehicles and mechanical support throughout the ride. The routes are marked with white paint. Each rest stop will close after the last rider has come through.

After the Ride: You’ve raised all this money and cycled up to 100 miles, now let us take care of you! You will ride through the finish line, receive your finisher medal and join us at our post-ride celebration featuring a fabulous BBQ lunch, live DJs, local vendors offering product samples, free massage therapy and more!

For those riding the 100-mile route in Windsor, you must maintain a minimum pace of 15 mph (including stops). All others will be transported back to the start/finish area from designated check points.

Pre-event packet pick-up: Saturday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to Noon at Griffin Center in Building 5, at 5 Waterside Crossing, in Windsor. 

Don’t just ride, Bike MS.
