Team Cycle for a Cause was well on it’s way to cycle through our third year as the FitRec team for Bike MS in June. This week, Bike MS announced that the ride will be going virtual this year. We are happy to announce that we have not canceled our efforts, we are taking it virtually as well! There is opportunity for all supporters to get involved as virtual riders – for FREE! Next week, Team Cycle for a Cause will announce what we will be doing to continue to support the efforts; meanwhile, below is a message from our partners at Bike MS.

Good afternoon, Bike MS Riders!

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy during this time.

For the safety of people with MS, cyclists, volunteers, staff—and all our communities—we will not come together in person for Bike MS: Tour de Farms. Even though we are unable to come together in-person for Tour de Farms, we still need you, more than ever.

We are excited to offer you two experiences all with the same mission, to create a world free of MS:

All riders, volunteers, friends and family of all ages can participate in Bike MS virtually on June 27! Put on your Bike MS jersey, shirt, or jacket and enjoy a ride of your choice! You can ride in your living room on your trainer, around your neighborhood, on a trail, or through your community – socially distant, of course. Our virtual experience also has multiple virtual events leading up to the ride including Virtual Beer Tastings, Cookies with our Rookies, Team Captain Happy Hours, and Coffee Hour Open Houses. Learn more through your Bike MS Newsletters or by reaching out to Alisha or Katie.

In addition to joining us virtually, you can also transfer to any other Bike MS ride in 2020! We will waive your registration fee and while you will physically ride at another location, your fundraising can all remain at Bike MS: Tour de Farms to ensure you can still continue your progress towards your Bike MS goals and our wonderful incentives like the Gold Spokes program. We suggest a transfer to Bike MS: Cruisin the Crossroads in Lebanon, IN on October 10. Please connect with us more information and assistance in getting your registration transferred.

In any option you chose, the funds you and your team raise, miles you ride, and camaraderie you build are all a part of the Bike MS experience. We know that Bike MS is more than a ride. Your commitment to the National MS Society keeps us moving forward to our ultimate goal – to end MS forever. We offer our sincere gratitude and look forward to assisting you as you pivot your Bike MS Journey.

Thank you for your ongoing and generous support of the work of the National MS Society. Your support allows us to adjust to the changing needs of our MS community at this critical time. We look forward to coming together as an amazing online MS fighting community!

-Katie, Alisha, and your Bike MS Team
