 The National Multiple Sclerosis Society invites individuals and teams to pedal toward a world free of MS during Bike MS: Pedal los Pueblos 2014, presented by Sam’s Club, on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 6-7. This annual two-day fundraising ride is fully supported from start to finish and features a figure-eight route through Northern New Mexico. Registered cyclists commit to raise a minimum of $250 to fund MS education, programs, services and research that directly impact the lives of those affected by the disease. 
“Bike MS represents more than just an opportunity to raise awareness and funds toward the MS movement, it’s the chance for community members, neighbors, and families to come together and connect with one another,” notes Maggie Schold, Senior Development Manager for the National MS Society in New Mexico. “We are excited for our cyclists to experience this extraordinary ride as they support an extraordinary cause.” 
Bike MS: Pedal los Pueblos features an out-and-back route from the Cities of Gold Hotel and Casino in Pojoaque. Registration for Bike MS: Pedal los Pueblos is currently $25 until May 14, then will follow the following fee schedule: $35 May 15- July 14, $45 July 15 – Sept. 4. Registered cyclists are required to commit to a minimum fundraising pledge of $250. Visit bikeMSnewmexico.org to register to ride, form a team, volunteer or make a donation.

Additionally, the National MS Society depends on committed volunteers to ensure Bike MS is an enjoyable and well-managed event.
