Bike MS is the fundraising cycling series of the National MS Society and raises more money than any other cycling event for any other cause. To date, Bike MS cyclists, volunteers, 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.
The Bike MS: Historic New Bern 2017 is a two-day fundraising cycling event that takes riders through the beautiful countryside of eastern North Carolina. It is scheduled for Sept. 9 & 10 and has grown into the tenth largest MS biking event in the US with close to 2000 riders of all levels. The ride begins and ends each day in the quaint downtown of New Bern, NC at Union Point Park.
