The safety of our cyclists is the number one priority at Bike MS. Each year, tens of thousands of participants join in approximately 100 rides across the nation. There is a great mix of riders with different experience and skill levels on the road together. To help ensure that everyone has a great ride and arrives safely at the finish line, we work hard to create a proactive approach to safety.

Safety isn't just about wearing your cycling helmet and knowing the rules of the road. Those are very important measures, but cycling safety involves much more. Bike safety includes a wide variety of topics including bike maintenance, group riding skills, cycling etiquette and much more.

The National MS Society strongly encourages you to review the compiled bike safety information resources below. This information will help you prepare and practice safe cycling skills.

Ride safely and have fun because there's nothing like crossing the finish line and celebrating with your team! Don't just ride, Bike MS.
