This week, I’m thrilled to share the story of Christina, who rides on behalf of her uncle David. MS may have impacted his speech and movement, but it hasn’t taken away his sense of humor (made even more apparent by Christina’s Bike MS team name).
All this and more in this week’s Pedal News.

BIKE MS RIDER STORIES: UNCLE DAVID IS STILL SUPERMAN
“Imagine a man—tall, fit, just out of the Navy, broad-chested and clowning. He’s wearing a tight Superman t-shirt and he smiles at you from the TV screen of your old home movies. This is how I like to remember my Uncle David. Now, Uncle David lives in a VA care facility. He’s why I Bike MS.”
DOUG THE PUG’S FUNDRAISING TIP OF THE WEEK: TURN YOUR FACEBOOK COVER INTO YOUR BIKE MS STORY
Ruff! Share a photo from this year’s Bike MS ride. If you didn’t have the chance to take a selfie, check out our Flickr albums—there’s a good chance we did! Then, tell people why you care about ending MS forever. The more personal you make it, the more impact it will have.
Example post: I’m riding for my Mom who lives with MS. The disease may have taken away her ability to move, but it hasn’t changed how much she cares about our family. Join me in supporting my Mom through Bike MS. Make a donation of $35. It only takes a minute.
When people “like” your post, direct message them with a link to your fundraising page and ask them to donate. Rose B. raised $1300 in three days this way!
Teams: If you’re not currently in the top 20 list, please email Amy for your current ranking.
Thanks for helping us roll towards a world free of MS.
