Bike MS: Waves to Wine Ride 2017

The Mountains Are Calling

“The mountains are calling and I must go…”

-John Muir, 1873


Preserving his childlike sense of wonder and embracing old age as a boy might turn over rocks in a creek, John Muir is a timeless icon of the outdoors.

He embraced every sight, sound and smell. From planting flowers, sketching, journaling about friendships, from sunrise to sunset he soaked in every moment. Muir explored nature with such reverence that the trees, insects, and animals became characters. He was a storyteller of life. Once he even climbed a pine during a particularly bad storm just for the experience.

However, the quote above about the mountains calling is often often left uncompleted, Muir continues, “The mountains are calling and I must go, and I will work on while I can…”. Muir realized that, like the natural wonders of the country, life is fleeting and should be enjoyed in the moment.

Being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis is an earthquake. It fractures lifestyles, families, and upends the stable ground one once took for granted. Muir wrote of earthquakes, “by what at first sight seemed pure confusion and ruin, the landscapes were enriched.”

Use the power of your earthquake, stop and smell the flowers, and keep on working on while you still can!

We hope you can support us, either financially or emotionally as we hope to fundraise for our goal of $5,000. Several of our team members have loved ones that are a diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and we would be proud to represent your donation.

Our goal—a world free of MS.

We've formed a team for Bike MS—an epic fundraising ride that is changing the lives of people affected by MS and helping fuel progress toward a world free of MS. We'd love your support as we prepare for this incredible experience. If you want to do more than make a donation, join our team!

We are prepared to go the distance for MS. It will take advance training, preparation and ongoing commitment from hundreds of other people and thousands of cyclists all over the country. What will really put power in our pedals is your support and our commitment to those impacted by this disease. Every mile we ride brings us closer to our goal—a world free of MS.

Please support our team today.

We've set an ambitious goal because we know that with support from people like you we can get there. The money raised will help fund amazing progress in MS research, as well services that ensure people affected by MS can live their best lives.

 

Happy Peddling,
-Team ‘The Mountains Are calling’

About MS

When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by multiple sclerosis. Symptoms of MS range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS. Thank you for your support.
