Two Days, Two Wheels: Bike MS Cyclists Trek Across Texas by James Black

For cyclists and those seeking a personal challenge, Bike MS is the premier fundraising cycling series in the United States. This year, thousands of cyclists are joining the National MS Society to saddle up in events throughout the Lone Star State to raise awareness and funds to fuel multiple sclerosis research, programs and services. Earlier this year, the 2012 Bike MS roster kicked off in April with the 28th Annual Houston-to-Austin BP MS 150 – the largest event of its kind in North America with 13,000 cyclists and the Society’s largest single U.S. fundraiser, with a 2012 goal of $17 million – and the 25th North Texas-based Bike MS: Sam’s Club in May. This summer, things heat up with the Bike MS: Cactus and Crude, presented by Apache on July 21-22.
