Registration open for Bike MS 2016

General registration opened Jan. 4 for all three of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Bike MS events here in the Carolinas. Last year, more than 3,300 people rode in a Bike MS event, raising more than $3 million right here in our backyard. In 2016, it is our goal to have more than 4,000 riders and more than $3.3 million raised.

 

We offer three very different and exciting event options: Historic New Bern Ride in beautiful New Bern, N.C. on Sept. 10-11, (bikemsnewbern.org); Tour to Tanglewood Ride in the wine country of Clemmons, N.C. on Sept 17-18, (bikemstanglewood.org); and our Breakaway to the Beach Ride in scenic Sunset Beach, N.C. on Oct. 8-9,  (breakawaytothebeach.org).

 

In 2015, Bike MS nationally raised more than $83 million through 100 rides across the country and with more than 100,000 people cycling in one of our events. Bike MS is the fifth largest peer-to-peer fundraising campaign in the country. Your participation will drive MS research forward faster and deliver programs and services to those who face the challenges of MS every day. In 2016, we will raise $3.3 million to create a world free of MS – and we want you to be a part of it!
