Join us and more than 1,200 of our closest friends as we tour scenic Western Pennsylvania. Riders of all skill levels are welcome on this fully-supported 2-day bike ride. The ride starts just north of Pittsburgh at Moraine State Park. You’ll travel through the rolling hills and end in Meadville, PA on Day 1 at Allegheny College. Enjoy the festivities of the team village, live music, free beer garden and more at the college. Day 2 of the ride will take you to the shores of Lake Erie as you finish in Conneaut, OH. Enjoy the finish line celebration as you complete the ride of a lifetime.
While you ride, you'll need to be concerned with two things: having fun, and riding safely! To make your ride a safe and memorable one, the Escape to the Lake Bike MS Ride is fully supported with SAG vehicles, bike mechanics and rest stops.
NEW in 2015: Join us for one or two days this year. We are introducing a one-day option on Saturday. Take any of our route options to Allegheny College and either ride a shuttle back to the Start line or get picked up. Also NEW, a shorter route option on Saturday. Invite your friends who may have shied away from our previous, longer routes.
Bike MS will take you further than you've ever gone before. It's not the miles that matter—it's the unforgettable journey. This is the 30th Anniversary of this ride and we hope you will join us!
