Thumbs up 2007 MS150 Bay to Bay Tour (SoCal)

On October 13th and 14th, 2500 cyclists will be heading down the beautiful Southern California coast to support the Pacific South Coast Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The ride starts in Irvine and winds through such idyllic locations as Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, San Clemente, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Del Mar until it finalizes in the majestic Mission Bay on the coast of San Diego.

This is the 25th Anniversary of this wonderful event and I strongly encourage everyone to join in the fun. I have completed this ride for the past five years and enjoyed myself immensely.

For more information, or to donate to a rider, visit the website at http://www.biketofinishms.org/.
Here is a link to my personal donation page in case you want to help me reach my goal of $5,000.00.

I hope to see you out there having fun and raising money and awareness for MS.

Let's all Start to Finish MS!

+1,000,000. I'll gladly sponsor you, Phil, and am impressed with your continued dedication. I'm not riding but hope to volunteer in some capacity this year. Anyone who does ride will not regret it!

One other note is that the century option for day 1 has been totally redone. It is a beautiful route!

I've attached the map and profile of the century portion from Oceanside out to Escondido and back to Carlsbad!

I also put in the map for the entire Day 1 Century. The non century route is the same excluding the loop after the Century Start waypoint on the map

Bay to Bay is a Great Ride

We flew from NYC last year to attend the Bay to Bay ride. It is a great course and has a phenomenal staff working the event.

This is a disease that has touched my family in multiple ways and for some in very devestating ways. Seeing folks with MS riding in this event or at the rest stops is truly inspiring.

If you are interested in only doing a one day ride, you can do that. Check out their web page for instructions.

The new century route looks great.

Let's hope so... I was really disappointed with both dinner, and breakfast... I'm not expecting 5-star... but something that tastes good would be nice! :-)


Have you seen a menu? :-)
