Bike MS will take you fruther than you've ever gone before. It's not the miles that matter - it's the unforgettable journey. Join us for an event that's more than a ride - it's anticipation, camaraderie, perosnal accomplishment, and the knowledge that you're changing lives....making every mile that much sweeter.

Bike MS truly is the ride of your life!
We ask that all Bike to the Battlefield cyclists take a few moments to watch a new educational video from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on safely driving, fitting, and maintaining a bicycle. This video is especially helpful for first time or novice cyclists. Thank you!
The "Pedal Partners" program strives to connect people living with multiple sclerosis and Bike MS participants.
If you are interested, we will match you with a person living with multiple sclerosis to help make the ride a more meaningful experience. The paired partners are encouraged to connect before, during, and after the Bike event. This connection fosters education, awareness, and most importantly, HOPE.
Dedicating your efforts to an individual will have a profound impact on both of you, giving you a connection to those living every day with mutliple sclerosis and giving your inspirational "Pedal Partner" reassurance that he or she is not alone in the fight to create a world free of MS.
Contact Jennifer Ely, 205.879.8546 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting connected with a "Pedal Partner."
