Bike MS Pedal News: August 18, 2016

More pics, great stories, last chance to register

Q: You know what’s great after Bike MS weekend?

A: Hearing what you loved about the event and how we can make it better next year.

For instance, the Saturday 18-mile ride was so popular that, in 2017, we’re going to add a short (and flat) route on Sunday, too.

Another thing I hear: “Do you have more photos?” Yes, we do! I’ve included links to each of our Flickr albums below. Please find your favorites and share them on Facebook or Instagram.

More than anything, the stories from your weekend adventure continue to resonate within the community—and remind us why we all Bike MS. Bonnie Iglesias, who’s lived with MS for more than twenty years, was able to ride solo for the first time in decades. You just have to read her story.

All this and more in this week’s Pedal News.
