Bike MS planned Sept. 9-10

More than 200 cyclists are expected to raise over $160,000 to help people affected by MS at Bike MS: Rock’n Hot Ride. The 126-mile journey is planned Saturday, Sept. 9, and Sunday, Sept. 10, beginning in North Little Rock, overnighting in Hot Springs Village and finishing in North Little Rock at the festive finish line.

Cyclists will travel through Central Arkansas, enjoying some of the most scenic views throughout their two-day journey.

Bike MS, hosted by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, attracts nearly 100,000 participants nationwide in more than 80 rides. To date, Bike MS cyclists, volunteers, sponsors and donors have raised more than $1 billion so people affected by MS can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what’s been lost and end MS forever.

Bike MS includes people living with MS, their friends, families and neighbors, as well as corporate teams and individuals who are driven to support critical MS research and life-changing services for people living with MS. People living with MS can also participate in “I Ride with MS,” a special program supported nationally by Biogen and Primal that recognizes Bike MS cyclists living with the disease.

Bike MS is supported nationally by premier National Sponsors Bicycling Magazine and Primal, the apparel provider of Bike MS.
