Bike to the Bay: Thousands participate in Delaware’s largest cycling event

    Cyclists of all skill levels turned out for Delaware’s Bike to the Bay in support muscular sclerosis research and awareness.

    Bikers chose from a 17-mile, 45-mile, 75-mile or 100-mile one-day option or opted for the 150- or 175-mile two-day ride.

    According to Delawareonline.com:

    “The annual cycling event attracts nearly 2,000 cyclists and raises more than $1 million for the fight to cure MS and provide care and assistance for those with the disease.”

    Year-round event planning by the Delaware Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society includes more than 250 volunteers, a partnership with DelDOT and participation by the communities along the routes.
