Bike MS: C.H. Robinson Cruise the Cornfields, Saturday, June 21, Ames, IA



Don’t just ride, Bike MS

Bike MS: C.H. Robinson Cruise the Cornfields is a one-day ride featuring 25, 50 and 100-mile route options and a festive, finish line celebration in Ames, IA.  But it’s more than just a ride.  It’s an extraordinary experience for an extraordinary cause.  Money raised for Cruise the Cornfields helps the National MS Society continue important work to help people living with multiple sclerosis.

Cyclists must raise $100 to participate, and are fully supported from start to finish!  Bike mechanics are on the route to fix flat tires and mechanical problems, and rest stops stocked with water, fruit and snacks are provided every 10-15 miles.  Each rider walks away with a T-shirt and another notch on their bicycling belt!

At Bike MS events, it’s not just the miles that matter – it’s the unforgettable journey. It’s the anticipation, camaraderie, personal accomplishment and the knowledge that you’re changing lives…making every mile that much sweeter.

Register now using promo code RAGBRAI, and receive $10 off at registration.  To learn more or sign up today, visit myMSbike.org or call 855-372-1331.
