Our 2023 MS Bike Ride Season Recap

New routes and familiar faces.

New Routes and Familiar Faces on our MS bike rides

Unclip your cleats, dip that tire, and pop some champagne. It’s time to celebrate a successful 2023 season for Bike the US for MS and our MS bike ride fundraisers.

In addition to our classic cross country bike tour, the Northern Tier , and long distance cycle tours up the Atlantic Coast, and down the Pacific Coast , we offered two new week long rides in our 2023 season. The Olympic Peninsula Loop that started and finished in Seattle, and The GAP and C&O trail ride that started in Pittsburgh and finished in Washington, D.C.

With the help of 80+ cyclists putting on a Bike the US for MS jersey, and the hundreds of supporters behind them, our 2023 teams were able to raise over $214,000 to go towards improving the lives of those living with multiple sclerosis!

Check out each team’s adventure with our photo recap, and how to be a part of our 2024 season .

Atlantic Coast MS bike ride

The Atlantic Coast

From the sandy beaches of florida to the rocky coast of maine.

We kicked off the season in sunny St Augustine, Florida in April. The ride was full of challenges out on the road, but it is great to see that over half the team has signed up to take on another adventure with us in 2024.

The team was able to visit an assisted living center outside of Philadelphia, work together on a service project, and make a virtual donation to the MS Alliance of Virginia.

“Through the many interactions you’ll have along the way, a Bike the US for MS ride has the potential to make a good person even better. The perfect solution to improve one’s body, mind and soul.” Atlantic Coast 2023 Team Member

Atlantic Coast Highlights

Northern Tier

A small group with big heart.

While only a core group of 8 team members made the full trip from Bar Harbor, ME to Seattle, WA , a handful of segment cyclists joined them along the way. Sharing the adventure, the group turned a set of strangers into close friends.

The team was able to complete service projects in Cleveland and Bismarck, as well as make a donation to the Fairview MS Achievement and spend a life affirming afternoon with them.

“Each day presented a brand new challenge that was a journey of its own, giving me the chance to appreciate this country’s beauty, be reminded of the goodness of kind people, renew my humility, reinvigorate my spirit, and hopefully grow as a person” Northern Tier 2023 Team Member

Cross Country cycle highlights - Northern Tier

The Olympic Peninsula

A new route with familiar faces.

With 40 team members, this was our biggest group in years! It made Seattle feel like an alumni family reunion reminiscent of our 10 year reunion.

In just a week’s riding, the Olympic Peninsula Loop created an adventure-packed journey, from misty mornings and scenic ferry rides to relaxing beachside rest stops. Amidst the towering beauty of PNW forests, our team shared laughter and memories from their many years of riding with Bike the US for MS, dating as far back as 2009. We were fortunate to cap off the trip with a fantastic celebration and check donation to the Swedish MS Center .

“I’m always blown away by the positivity, resilience, and kindness of Bike the US for MS cyclists. BTUSFMS is like adult summer camp: you’ll come away as a stronger, better person with some amazing stories and lifelong friends you can’t wait to see again.” Olympic Peninsula 2023 Team Member

Olympic Peninsula Highlights

Pacific Coast Bike Route

Rolling waves and redwoods.

Embarking on our 2023 Pacific Coast adventure from Seattle to San Diego was a blast! Our crew of 12, mostly Bike the US for MS alumni, tackled the 32-day journey like champs. Two team members faced the challenges of cycling with multiple sclerosis, reminding us that supporting those affected by MS lies at the heart of our mission.

It wasn’t all serious pedaling. We mixed in a ton of fun – beach shenanigans and nights camping under the towering Redwoods. We will be back for more in 2024, this time in July. Be sure to check out the Pacific Coast bike route as you’re next adventure.

“My favorite experience on the Pac Coast ride was waking up and leisurely riding through the Redwood Forest. Watching the sun rays make their way through the trees and listening to the birds sing their morning song.” Pacific Coast 2023 Team Member

Pacific Coast Highlights

The GAP and C&O

A trip of firsts.

This was our first time leading a trip on The GAP (Great Alleghany Pass) and C&O (Chesapeake and Ohio) canal from Pittsburgh to Washington D.C. It was also our first car-free trail ride and first camping optional trip thanks to our six generous hosts! A little mud to round out our Fall season never hurt anyone right?

The decision to repeat the route in 2024 is a testament to the appeal of this adventure! This time, we’re extending it to 6 days of riding, eager to relive the scenic beauty of the Eastern Continental Divide. Keen for the GAP & C&O in 2024? One tip, 28mm tyres or bigger are best.

“Lovely, safe gravel riding. BTUSFMS understands how to support riders of all abilities and experience levels, while creating a supportive and memorable team atmosphere.” GAP & C&O 2023 Team Member

GAP & C&O Highlights

Ready for your next MS bike ride?

Feeling inspired to ride in 2024.

Our 2023 cycling season may have come to a close, but 2024 is just around the corner! Don’t forget our new adventures including our March MS Bike Ride Florida coastal bike route, featuring a 3 day Florida Keys Bike Trail weekend, as well as our North Lakes adventure from Minneapolis to Chicago in August. The TransAmerica cross country cycle route is BACK and already has 12 riders signed up! Be sure to join the team or check out our full schedule of rides . See you in 2024!

Ms 150 bike ride in houston will span 100 miles to college station.

The ride is an effort to raise funds and awareness for those living with multiple sclerosis.

riders

Over 5,500 cyclists will take off from Houston to ride more than 150 miles to College Station as part of the Bike MS: Texas MS 150 this weekend.

MS 150 – an effort to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis and funds for the National MS Society – will begin on Saturday at 6:45 a.m.. Starting lines will be in both Houston and Austin. In Houston, the starting point will be at the Addicks Park ‘n Ride in the Energy Corridor. That route will be 100 miles long to the end point in College Station.

Starting points will also be in Brookshire and Bellville.

On Tuesday, Houston City Council honored the event with a proclamation during its meeting.

"I'm an avid cyclist," said At-Large Councilmember Letitia Plummer. "It's such an amazing team and amazing cause."

Plummer said she will not be riding this year, but supports those who are.

Councilmember Michael Kubosh told cyclists to "be careful out there."

"There are some really aggressive drivers, and some of them are just not real friendly," he said. "And you have to be watching out for them all the time, never assume that they will be paying attention. God bless y'all out there."

This is the National MS Society's 39th year hosting the MS 150. This year the organization expects cyclists from Texas, 30 other states and 10 countries to be a part of the ride. It will span over 150 miles from Houston and Austin, and all routes will finish in College Station.

Cyclists can choose from multiple routes, ranging from 50 to over 150 miles.

Why Bike MS: Colonial Crossroads is 'labor of love' for Team CBS 6

ms bike tour 2023

RICHMOND, Va. — The Bike MS: Colonial Crossroads 2024 ride to defeat multiple sclerosis is underway in Central Virginia this weekend.

Some riders traveled 75 or 100 miles Saturday morning from Varina High School in eastern Henrico to Williamsburg. Others turned around and did the same thing back to Richmond Sunday morning. Others enjoyed a 33-mile family ride in Williamsburg on Saturday.

Each rider raised money for research into MS and to provide services for people in our community suffering from the disease.

The disease attacks the central nervous system and over time erodes the myelin sheath that covers nerve endings.

There is no cure but in the last five years, new therapies have vastly improved the quality of life for those with MS.

There are more than a dozen riders on Team CBS 6 this year.

Bill Fitzgerald, whose mother-in-law died of complications from multiple sclerosis, is taking part in his eleventh ride.

"It's events like these that raise money for that crucial research and to help people in our area who need those services," Fitzgerald said. "It's a labor of love."

Team RABA ranked first with more than $61,300, the Capital Ale House team was second with more than $49,500.

Team CBS 6 ranked fifth with more than $36,700 raised and Bill Fitzgerald placed second as one of the race's top fundraisers, collecting more than $18,500.

If you would like to contribute, you can donate to the squad itself or to individual team members; either way, your donation will be put to use in helping people and researchers in our area.
