Bike MS event on Route 66 aims for $500,000

The annual Bike MS Oklahoma Ride cycling event next month on Route 66 is aiming to raise $500,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Oklahoma chapter, reported the Edmond Sun.

The 26th annual Bike MS Oklahoma Ride is a statewide cycling event heading from Tulsa to Oklahoma City for fun along Route 66 with stops along the way at many of the historic landmarks.

Cyclists will ride about 150 miles during both days. Along the ride cyclists can find rest stops every 10-12 miles and support and gear vehicles will be available between stops. […]

The ride begins at 7 a.m. Sept. 17 and at 7:30 a.m. Sept. 18.

Day One starts at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Tulsa and goes to Chandler, and Day Two starts in Chandler and ends in Oklahoma City at the state Capitol.

Here’s a report from last year’s event:

Bike MS is truly one of the great charity events in Oklahoma. And I’ve heard so many people like the trek on Route 66, they come back to do the Mother Road on another date just for their own enjoyment.
