Bike MS is pretty much the coolest activity of the cycling year. The whole of Team C4C comes out for the event, we camp out in the field, there's a pool party and, oh yeah, we get to bike 150 miles through beautiful Cache Valley to benefit an amazing organization.
In a world of shrinking research budgets, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is making a real difference in slowing this terrible disease's progress, assisting those in need, and bringing us closer to a cure. MS is a disease we are gaining on! In its first decade, the National MS society funded 2 Nobel Prize winners, created the first test to diagnose MS, and has made other huge strides in both treating and curing MS. And MS Bike and Walk dollars are the main sources of funding all that great research! The money raised in Bike MS is also used to provide education, information, direct financial support, and scholarships to individuals and families living with MS.
This year, Steve and I rode on our tandem bike. It was great! Great weather, great scenery, and riding right along with my very favorite person in the world.
Yeah, we're adorable.
We had a smaller crew for Sunday's ride - and it was great!
