I’m not a person that will exercise just for the sake of exercising; I need some purpose or goal other than trying to get in shape. Bike MS gave me a great reason to get on my bike and ride over the rolling hills of Central Georgia.
The “Bike for MS” is a nationwide fund raising event for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The Ipswitch iCare program contributed $250 as a sponsor of my ride. I have registered for next year’s ride, so I will begin a new fund-raising campaign soon. During the two-day event Sept. 16-17, over 1,800 riders raised over $1 million to help find an MS cure. Many of the riders sported high-end road bikes, a few recumbent bikes, a couple of hand powered trikes and even a unicyclist.
