Bike MS Rookie Meet-Ups

Welcome Bike MS Rookie Riders!

You have taken the first step and joined a National movement raising the necessary funds to further our research and provide the programs and services so those living with MS can live their BEST life.  

The Bike MS Rookie Rider meet-ups are recommended for all first-time Bike MS cyclists participating in the Round-Up Ride, and a great opportunity to connect with other first time riders.  These meet ups are designed to provide you all the necessary information to guide you through your first Bike MS, including training, hydration / nutrition and fundraising tips.  

ALL cyclists are encouraged to attend any of the meet-ups to gain new tips to increase your fundraising potential, and learn more about the MS mission, and WHY your fundraising is critical to ending MS forever.

Thank YOU for Riding!

Person on a pink bike riding by themselves“Riders everywhere should give Bike MS a chance.  It was totally out of my comfort zone.  No one cares if you are a seasoned rider or a rookie.  They just love the fact they you are out there helping to make a difference; the best part is listening to the panel stories of people who are living with MS.  We are making a difference and they are the proof!”

Things I Wish I Knew My First Year at Bike MS
(Tips from our Veteran Riders)

Group of people smiling and stretching

  1.  Attend the Pre-event Logistics Meeting. This will set you up for success leading up to your ride and include an overview of event details and how to stay safe on the road, as well as an opportunity to connect with other cyclists and teams. Check out the Ride Details page for info. 
     
  2. Bike MS is not just one event weekend! It’s a welcoming community with season-round opportunities to connect. Attend in-person events to meet AWESOME Bike MS staff and fellow riders and your ride weekend will feel like a family reunion — minus the drama! Visit the Ride Details page for upcoming pre-ride events.
     
  3. Fundraising doesn’t have to be overwhelming—there are so many resources like the Bike MS App and Facebook Fundraising to make our lives easy! We promise, the Fundraising Toolkit page of the website will be your new best friend.  
     
  4. Did we mention the swag?! The more you raise, the more lives you change and the more prizes you can earn! PLUS, if you’re one of our top fundraisers this season, you can flaunt the most coveted item of all: a local Club K prize jersey! Check out the Clubs and Incentives page for the fundraising levels and prizes.
     
  5. Start training now. Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or new to the sport, VeloPro, the official training partner of Bike MS will get you ready to tackle your ride like a champ.  VeloPro learns about you, your goals and schedule and then creates a training plan that continuously adapts to your performance. 
     
  6. Padded shorts are NOT overrated—your butt will thank you later! 
     
  7. Make sure you check out the Ride Details page where you’ll find info like the event schedule and routes and maps. Or better yet, bookmark that page and check back often! All key event day info lives there.

See you at the finish line!
