Last year Bike MS: Tour de Farms raised over 1.62 million dollars for the National Multiple Sclerosis, Greater Illinois Chapter. The event attracts over 2400 riders and volunteers to the city of DeKalb, Ill. The bike ride takes place over two days and 200 miles and offers various route options for all levels of cyclists. This year’s event will take place at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center on June 21 & 22, 2014. To help bring us closer to a world free of MS, each event participant agrees to raise the minimum pledge of $300.
Cyclists can choose to ride one or two days, with route options ranging from 15-200 miles. Riders are fully supported on the routes with rest stops every 10-15 miles and 20 support-and-gear vans along the route. We offer all participants and volunteers breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. On Saturday afternoon as cyclists finish up their ride they are invited over to our annual festival which offers food, bands, beer and more.
