We love to reward our riders and teams who go the extra mile with their fundraising for Bike MS!
You earned your prize, but you can choose to donate the cost of your prize back to the vision of a world free of MS! Simply choose "Mission First" as your prize selection, and instead of receiving a prize, you'll receive the satisfaction of knowing those dollars are advancing the mission of the National MS Society.
Every cyclist who rides and raises the minimum $300 will receive a Bike MS: City to Shore T-shirt. Keep reading to learn about other incentives, prizes, and awards.
Turn in your required $300 fundraising minimum by this date and receive your rider number in the mail prior to the ride.
Turn in $400 by this date and receive an official Bike MS pop socket for your cell phone.
Turn in $500 by this date and receive a commemorative City to Shore long sleeved T-shirt! **2018 design coming soon!**
We must receive your donations by this date to qualify. City to Shore long sleeved T-Shirts will be mailed in early September.
Raise $1,000 or more and become a member of the VIP Club. You’ll receive a distinctive, fully-sublimated VIP Jersey (pictured at left) and much more. **2018 design coming soon!**

“I did not realize the impact of my number...received a number of ‘atta boys’ during the ride and felt such pride for my company and colleagues and for raising over $5,000 myself.“
