Bike MS: Chesapeake Challenge is the National MS Society, Maryland Chapter’s premier Bike MS event. Chesapeake Challenge is held at the Talbot County Community Center on June 6 - 7, 2015. This event offers a perfect experience for cyclists of all levels and abilities with a variety of route options winding through the flat and rural Eastern Shore.

Participants will enjoy quaint, scenic, waterfront communities like Tilghman Island, Oxford, St. Michaels, Trappe and ride on the Oxford Bellevue ferry after lunch. Chesapeake Challenge is fully supported with rest stops stocked with snacks, ice-cold drinks and cheering volunteers. All along the routes you’ll find Support and Gear vehicles, professional medical volunteers and bike mechanics to keep you going to the finish line.

The sense of accomplishment you’ll feel as you cross the finish line can only be matched by the difference you’ll be making in the lives of everyone affected by MS. All participants agree to raise at least $300; most raise significantly more. The money you raise will fund research into the cause, cure and treatment of MS as well as funding education, advocacy, and local programs that enhance the quality of life for people affected by MS.

People who ride in Bike MS may do so to support family members, friends or coworkers who have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. But, there are also legions of participants who live—and ride—with the disease, despite challenges such as fatigue or weakness. I Ride with MS is a special Society program that celebrates Bike MS cyclists who are also living with multiple sclerosis.

Anyone living with MS who is interested in cycling to support the MS movement can join the program, enjoy special day-of-event benefits and receive a complimentary "I Ride with MS" jersey. Genzyme and MS One to One, and Primal Wear are proud supporters of the I Ride with MS program, available through all 100 Bike MS events nationwide.

I Ride with MS participants are not only committed to cycling to create a world free of MS, but to increasing awareness. For more information or to register for the program, find your Bike MS event below or contact the Society to sign up for this program today!

This program is made possible through partnership with Genzyme and MS One to One.
