Policy for Minors Participating in Bike MS New York City

The National MS Society has instituted a strict policy for minors who wish to participate in any Bike MS event in the country. All participants must be 12 years of age or older on the day of the ride. No one under the age of 12 will be permitted to participate in a Bike MS ride.

Individuals between the ages of 12-17 that would like to register for Bike MS New York City can do so online, but must submit a notarized Minor Waiver and Release Form to the National MS Society. We must have this waiver on file before the event, and the participant must have raised the fundraising minimum of $200 in order to receive a packet containing mandatory event day materials.
