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.
