MS Bike to the Bay is Just 65 Days Away!

It’s hard to believe that our 5th ride as a team for MS Bike to the Bay is just around the corner! We had an absolute blast last year, while raising over $41,000 for a great cause.  The minimum pledge to ride was increased from $250 to $300 for the Bike Ride’s 30th anniversary, and it seems like it’s discouraged a good many of MS supporters.

We usually ask that riders be registered with half their pledge raised by July 15th to qualify for a HAC Pack Jersey, but we are extending the deadline to July 28, 2013! To help with fundraising ideas, the MS Society released this 7 day plan as a suggestion:
