Ready for the ride of a lifetime?

The National MS Society is actively recruiting new volunteers to join our event committee for Bike MS. See specific positon description below!

Bike MS: The Road Divided is a two-day fundraising cycling event that takes riders on a journey from Norman to Stillwater. Bike MS: The Road Divided begins Saturday morning in Norman. Cyclists will travel north through Central Oklahoma and finish Day 1 for an overnight stay in historic Guthrie. On Day 2, the journey continues from Guthrie to the Bike MS: The Road Divided Finish Line in Stillwater. Participants will experience routes with fully-stocked rest stops every 10-12 miles, a great lunch stop each day and support provided by volunteer nurses, HAM radio operators and law enforcement.

Your participation will drive MS research forward faster, and deliver services to those who face the challenges of MS every day so they can live their best lives.
