STRATHAM — More than 200 cyclists are expected to raise over $115,000 to help people affected by MS at the 9th annual Bike MS: New Hampshire Seacoast Escape, a 1 day 25 or 60-mile journey. The ride takes place on Sat., August 26, featuring the beauty of New Hampshire's scenic, less-traveled roads as well as some main streets from a few seaside villages, all from the comfort and quiet of a bicycle. The New Hampshire Seacoast Escape has a family atmosphere and features a post-ride barbecue at the Start/Finish located at Stratham Hill Park, 270 Portsmouth Avenue in Stratham.
Bike MS, hosted by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, attracts nearly 100,000 participants nationwide in more than 80 rides. To date, Bike MS cyclists, volunteers, sponsors and donors have raised more than $1 billion so people affected by MS can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what's been lost, and end MS forever.
Bike MS includes people living with MS, their friends, families and neighbors, as well as corporate teams and individuals who are driven to support critical MS research and life-changing services for people living with MS. People living with MS can also participate in “I Ride with MS,” a special program supported nationally by Biogen and Primal that recognizes Bike MS cyclists living with the disease.
