Ready for the ride of a lifetime?
Bike MS: Kansas City Ride will take you farther than you’ve gone before. Voted Kansas City’s ‘Best Supported Ride’ by The Pitch and a ‘Top 10 Event’ by The Independent, you won’t find a more supported cycling event across the city. Enjoy a 1-day or 2-day cycling adventure riding from Garmin Headquarters in Olathe to the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Lawrence, where a celebration awaits you at the finish. You’ll find an unforgettable experience, complete with food trucks, Boulevard beer, live music, massages and more.
On Saturday, take your pick of 37-, 65- or 100-mile route options and on Sunday, 38 or 66 miles all cheered on by the most spirited volunteers around. To make your ride a safe and memorable one, the routes feature well-stocked rest stops every 8-12 miles and are monitored by a route support team consisting of HAM radio operators, support vans, motorcycle patrol, law enforcement, EMTs and mechanics from our partner bike shops.
In addition, you will experience an incredible level of camaraderie as you embark on a journey filled with laughter, excitement, support and a profound sense of accomplishment. Your participation drives us closer to a world free of MS by funding critical research and services that change the lives of people affected by MS.
