About Bike MS events
The National MS Society believes that moving is not just something you can or can’t do, but rather is who you are. This is why we sponsor events like Bike MS — to raise funds for research, as well as comprehensive programs and services for people with MS — moving closer to a world free of MS. The Larkin Hoffman MS 150 is one of three Minnesota Chapter Bike MS events. Other Bike MS events include the Allianz Twin Cities Ride, a one-day, 30- or 60-mile ride in Maplewood, Minn., May 10, and the Star Tribune The Ride Across Minnesota, a five-day, 250-mile ride through Minnesota’s Iron Range and North Shore, July 20 to 25.
