Join Mary Maxi and her team for an organized bike ride to fight MS.  Mary has been doing this ride to support the National MS Society for 6 years. She started because someone she met on the Race Pace Sunday morning bike ride invited her. Mary has met many people who are affected by MS.

The Saturday ride goes to St. Michael's where there is a picnic in the park and then aboard the Oxford/Bellevue ferry. Rides are 35, 70, or 100 miles on Saturday and 35 or 50 on Sunday.  Ride details can be found here.
