Team Canterbury

Team Cantertbury busted through the million dollar mark for lifetime monies raised with the conclusion of the 2017 Bike MS Tour to Tanglewood!  Our team began in 2002 as an outreach project of a sixth grade class at Canterbury School in Greensboro NC.  So, it took 16 consecutive years of fielding a team for our home event, Tour To Tanglewood, to reach the $1,000,000 mark which was a glorious event indeed!  This was the culmination of thousands of hours riding, thousands of miles, thousands of dollars raised.  We're not resting on our laurels, but instead beginning our quest for another million dollars!  2018 will be the 17th consecutive year in which Team Canterbury has ridden in the Tour To Tanglewood.  We have members who have been with us from the start without fail, in addition to members who have just completed their first year.       

We begin training every Saturday as soon as the temperature is predictably 50 degrees or better!  We establish life long friendships, riding with like-minded persons on a mission to rid the world of Multiple Sclerosis.  Please join us if you're interested in bike riding, family fun and raising funds for a most worthy organization, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  We are also riding annually in the Historic New Bern ride, also in September, as well as PGA Tour Cycle to the Shore in Ponte Vedra Florida in October.   There is a place for you on Team Canterbury, no matter your skill level or age.  Our youngest member is 12 and our oldest member is 80!   We get to know each other, enjoy seeing our members grow in experience, taking off on their own. 

Bike MS is a physical challenge for cyclists of every level, but it’s so much more than just a ride. The camaraderie, passion, and memories that come from sharing this experience with our team will stay with us for a lifetime. Bike MS is a weekend-long and LIFE-long opportunity to make a difference in your own life, and in the world. It’s a group effort that transcends personal accomplishment and touches the lives of the thousands of people affected by MS in our community. Join us! It’s more than a ride—it’s Bike MS.

About MS
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
