The 2013 annual ride to research a cure and treat multiple sclerosis, BIKE MS: NYC, is this Sunday October 6th. This is part of 100 different cycling events and the 29th year for NYC.
The event offers cyclists of all levels to choose from three different routes of varying lengths: 30, 55 and 100 miles and allows participants to ride on traffic free streets. Each year thousands of dollars are raised to fight MS through individual donor and prominent business, many who contribute to the world of cycling outside of this one particular event. Take for instance Radical Media, commercial production company that sponsors an all woman’s cycling team, Radicalmediaracing.com
Then there is the Bromberg brothers, Eric and Bruce who own Blue Ribbon Restaurants. They created their own team and in the past have given their employees bicycles to commute with and to use in the Bike MS event.
