Join the Fight Against Multiple Sclerosis with MS Bike in Canmore August 23 & 24Over 2 million people around the world are affected by multiple sclerosis, a debilitating disease that attacks the central nervous system. As the disease becomes more well-known and widespread, a number of initiatives have been taken up to combat its devastating effects. One such initiative is MS Bike.

MS Bike began in 1989 and has since become the largest cycling tour in North America--over 10,000 cyclists join the cause each year. Cyclists of all shapes, sizes and skill levels are encouraged to register, grab a pledge sheet, and fundraise as much as they can with the help of friends, family and coworkers. Funds raised from the event will go to MS research as well as services for those already living with MS.

Canmore's iteration of this fantastic event will not disappoint. Set in the beautiful surroundings of the Canmore Nordic Centre, cyclists will have a variety of challenging and breathtaking loops to choose from on Day 1 before enjoying dinner and drinks under the mountains! Day 2 sees cyclists hit the road again, so go easy on the dessert! At the conclusion of Day 2, cyclists will be greeted with a barbecue and joined by friends, family, staff and volunteers.

Register today for the MS Bike in Canmore
