At Bike MS, it's not just the miles that matter--it's the unforgettable experience. You feel the electricity at the start. You notice the carbon frame on your left, the tandem ahead, and the recumbent on your right. You glance back at your teammates. As you click into your pedals and settle into the saddle, you know you're going places you've never been. Don't just ride, Bike MS.

Join us for Bike MS: Ride the Vortex--Sedona Verde Valley presented by Sam's Club, Arizona's premier cycling event! We have route options for every level of cyclist, ranging from 30 to 100 miles, so you will surely find a route fit for you. Come enjoy delicious meals and strong support, with frequent rest stops. When you finish, a fantastic festival awaits you with great food, music, a beer garden, massage tent and fun games. Come enjoy a ride in a backdrop of some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

Most importantly, you will not only get an unforgettable weekend, but a chance to make a difference for people with multiple sclerosis.
