Bike MS planned Saturday in the 501 

Two hundred cyclists are setting out to raise $129,000 toward a world free of MS by riding up to 126 miles over two days. Bike MS: Rock’n Hot Ride will depart from Garver, LLC in North Little Rock on Saturday, Sept. 8, and conclude at Garver, LLC on Sunday, Sept. 9. The ride will feature four fully stocked rest stops, medical support, SAG vehicles, HAM radio operators and a celebration party at the Ponce De Leon Center in Hot Springs Village at the Day 1 finish line.

“Bike MS is an experience grounded in camaraderie that brings together cyclists of all levels for one reason – to create a world free of MS,” said Karen Littlejohn, executive director, National MS Society, South Central.

“Funds raised from this event support cutting-edge MS research as well as programs and services for people living with MS in this community.”

Bike MS: Rock’n Hot Ride is one of nearly 80 rides across the country hosted by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This year, more than 80,000 people are expected to participate in Bike MS nationwide.
