It’s almost that time of year again! Grab your bike and join us for the 2016 BP MS150. The BP MS 150 will take place April 16 and 17th with routes varying between 160-180 miles from Houston to Austin. The ride begins Saturday Morning with breakpoints located every 8 to 15 miles.
The BP MS150 is a fundraising bike ride organized by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Multiple sclerosis is an immune-mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. This event is the largest Bike MS event in the United States. With over 13,000 riders and 3,500 volunteers the MS150 has become an amazing fundraising engine for MS. The 2015 BP MS broke records by raising 20.3 million dollars in support of the mission to end MS.
Day one of the race concludes at the Fayette County Fairgrounds in La Grange. You can enjoy the overnight and Camp St. Mark’s locations in La Grange. Day two of the race concludes in downtown Austin with exciting Finish Line festivities. This event is an extraordinary experience based on the comradery of coming together. The same teams come back year after year to participate because of the lasting bonds that are created.
