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 course which will maintain contact with emergency vehicles and mechanical support throughout the ride. The routes are marked with white paint. All rest stops will close after the last rider has come through.

After the Ride: You’ve raised all this money and cycled for 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, local vendors offering product samples, free massage therapy and more!

For those riding the 100-mile route in Westport, 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.

Don’t just ride, Bike MS.
