The money raised through this event funds MS research, programs, services, and advocacy. This year, over 700 cyclists and volunteers will participate in this event to create a world free of MS.

Starting and finishing at Sea Trail Resort both days, Bike MS cyclists enjoy two full days of riding in coastal North and South Carolina. The coastal location, flat landscape, and miles of rural roads allow every level of cyclist to participate and enjoy their choice of routes each day. No matter how far you ride, enjoy great routes, stocked rest stops along the route every 10-15 miles, SAG (support and gear) vehicles, delicious meals, a festive Team Village and finish line experience, and so much more!
