Last weekend, the Society’s Greater Delaware Valley Chapter hosted their Bike MS: City to Shore event.  The routes, which included first-aid stations and rest stops, ranged from 25 miles to 100 miles through towns and countryside of Southern New Jersey until eventually winding their way to the shore.  This year, 7,000 cyclists joined in the ride, which raises funds to benefit research and to provide essential services to people living with MS.  Last weekend’s event is hoping to raise $5.2 million for the Society’s Greater Delaware Valley Chapter.  

This year, the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter added a new addition to their ride. As cyclists entered each congressional district along each route, they were met by welcome signs!   These signs, such as the one pictured below which reads “Welcome to Congressman Frank LoBiondo’s District member of the Congressional MS Caucus,” helped remind cyclists of the importance of MS Activism.  Six of New Jersey’s Congressmen are members of the Congressional MS Caucus.  Click here to see the members of the Congressional MS Caucus (link to page) and see if your members are involved.

The City to Shore ride is one of over 100 Bike MS events across the country taking place this year with more rides taking place over the coming months.  Click here to find a bike event near you!  Congratulations to all of the cyclists who participated in this event last weekend and thank you for making it a huge success!
