Each year, National MS Society Bike MS events bring people together to help create a world free of MS by raising funds and awareness. The funds are used to support programs, services, and MS research. In D.C., this event was on June 9-10, when more than 1,000 participants gathered in National Harbor, Maryland with a single mission—to end MS.
This year’s two-day ride was the 30th Anniversary of the D.C. Metropolitan Area’s Bike MS. The National Capital Chapter’s Bike MS “Ride the Riverside” had routes ranging from 30 miles in one day to 150 miles over two days. Together these dedicated riders raised more than $800,000! At the finish line the participants were met with food and drink along with live music and lots of cheering fans.
Rider Jason Flory, described the weekend event enthusiastically. “Amazing course support and great atmosphere! Riders of all ages and abilities join together for a meaningful cause. Only my second time participating in the event but I plan to come back next year and all the years that follow.”
“Ride the Riverside” with the National Capital Chapter is one of the 100 rides taking place across the United States this year. Over the next few months riders in all of the states across the country will bike to create a world free from MS. Are you interested in participating in Bike MS? It may not be too late!
