Bike MS: Great Maine Getaway 2017

Team Bobby Mac on Day 2 of the 2016 ride

Team Bobby Mac

Riding with love in our hearts and smiles on our faces!
In the spirit of our cycling mentor and friend, Bobby Mac, from Quad Cycles in Arlington, we have joined forces to raise funds for this important cause. Bobby's inspired us with his leadership and good will, and by his own record of giving. For more than two decades, Bobby rode several charity rides a year, raising money for a variety of causes, and raising cyclists like us to come join him. He taught us to love the sport, to look forward to our weekends together, and to see ourselves as cyclists. To see ourselves as part of a team.

Sadly, we lost Bobby two years ago to pancreatic cancer. He would love that we’ve kept our team together, that we’ve named it for him, and in particular, he would have loved that we chose a ride raising money to help fight MS. This is a cause close to home for us: one of our team members was recently diagnosed with the disease. The best way we can both honor Bobby’s legacy and help our teammate is to do what Bobby did best: pick an important cause, raise as much money as we can, and roll that ride! Please watch our team video:

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'll go the distance for MS. It will take advance training, preparation and ongoing commitment from hundreds of other people in Maine 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 as programs and services that ensure people affected by MS can live their best lives.
