Bike to create a world free of MS
Named by Bicycling Magazine as the “Best Cycling Getaway in NJ”, the Bike MS: City to Shore Ride promises to be the best cycling experience on the east coast.
Ride with 7,000 cyclists of all ages and cycling abilities for the challenge of your choice with several route options. Enjoy flat terrain as you travel through the quaint towns and back roads of Southern New Jersey. Pedal through the blueberry fields of Hammonton, experience the serene beauty of the Pine Barrens and listen to the waves as you roll into historic Ocean City.
This ride is fully supported with catered rest stops, bike support and SAG transportation. Invite your family and friends to cheer as you cross the finish line and enjoy a wonderful evening stroll on the boardwalk.
This is not just a ride, but an experience. The sense of accomplishment that you'll feel as you cross the finish line can only be matched by the difference you'll be making in the lives of people affected by MS.
