Everyone has a different reason for getting involved in Bike MS. For some it’s the challenge. For others it’s the camaraderie. But for many more it’s the opportunity to help people living with MS. Even if you may not have a personal connection to MS currently, ultimately by participating, you are coming together to ride, fundraise and help people living with MS move their lives forward.

If you are an individual living with MS and participating in Bike MS 2016, click here for more information about the “I Ride with MS” program.

Wear Your Ribbon Proudly | Bike MS Champions

Champions RibbonIf you are riding for someone in particular, have them sign their name on the orange ribbon you’ll receive in your rider number packet.

In addition to promoting awareness, the orange ribbon serves as a reminder of why we ride. You can pin it to your jersey or your rider number, or attach it to your bike; either way you are showing your support. Proudly wear this ribbon ride weekend and show your support in creating a world free of MS.

Learn why other City to Shore teams and individuals are riding, including this video of 2012-2015 City to Shore top fundraiser Albert DeRitis:

2016 MS Champions

Even if you may not have a personal connection to MS currently, you are riding for someone by participating in Bike MS. Meet our Champions below and read how your fundraising dollars are making a difference in the lives of people living with MS in our area.

Curt Gendler

"One of the greatest things about the Society is how they raise awareness. People need to find out about the disease, and understand that we can still add value to society. But the biggest way the MS Society helps is by being there when we have questions. The information is key."

Denise Franklin

"I started fundraising because I know where the money goes. I know that so many things wouldn’t be happening without the MS Society. And I’m not just talking about drugs getting approved. I’m talking about programs that help people and services that pay for doctor visits and more."

Kelly Griffith

"The MS Society has been a big advocate for me. They had a lift installed in the ceiling of my bedroom so I can get in and out of bed, which was a tremendous, wonderful gift. And they helped me when I needed a new wheelchair. So I like to give back when I can because the MS Society has been so good to me and my family."

Shay McCray

"The resources are one thing, but the National MS Society gives me a lot of hope...Knowing the Society is there for me and being an advocate for the disease has just made me feel more positive about the diagnosis as a whole."

Read Shay's Story

Lisa Houser

"The National MS Society helps me find out about new treatments and helps with my medicine and co-pays. The medicine is very expensive, and the MS Society can make connections to resources to help pay for it."

What to wear

We are delighted to welcome Primal Wear as the official apparel of Bike MS and invite you to check out Sponsors & Offers to see their specials for Bike MS participants.

So what should you wear for Bike MS?

  • Helmet - of course! You should wear one every time you ride, and you must when you ride in Bike MS. Modern helmets are lightweight, airy, and stylish as well.
  • Jersey - a cycling jersey with rear pockets is handy for carrying snacks, your wallet and other items. Summer jerseys are usually made from a material that wicks moisture way from the skin, keeping you drier and more comfortable. Plenty of casual riders simply pull on a T-shirt, but realize that sweat (or a rain shower) makes cotton heavy and clammy.
  • Shorts - cycling shorts are no joke. They are key to minimizing chafing and other discomforts when sitting on a saddle for any length of time. Good shorts have a large, smooth, lightly padded liner ("chamois”). If you don't care for the skintight look of Lycra, opt for the "baggie” mountain bike style that look like casual shorts but still has a liner. Being a loose fit, though, means they could bunch uncomfortably during long rides.
  • Gloves - short-finger cycling gloves absorb perspiration for a safer grip, protect against raw spots and blisters, and pad your palms to reduce road shock. Most have a terry back that gives you a way to wipe sweat from your eyes or energy drink from your chin.
  • Shoes and socks - dedicated cycling shoes, either for road riding or mountain biking, are the best choice. The reason? Very firm soles that let you press as hard as you want without feeling uncomfortable pedal pressure. You can use mountain bike style shoes with or without toe clips and straps, or with clipless pedal systems. Plenty of casual riders simply wear running shoes, but their softness makes them less suitable for longer distances. Socks are important for comfort and sweat absorption. Choose the low-cut style if you're worried about a funny tan line.
  • Sunglasses - it's best to use a sports model with unbreakable lenses that have 100% UV protection. The wraparound style will reduce bothersome wind, important if you wear contacts.

If you need some help training for Bike MS, make sure to read about Training Resources and remember to also read about Rider Safety.
