MS 150 City to Shore

This weekend is the 27th MS 150 City to Shore Tour, which goes from Cherry Hill, NJ to Ocean City, NJ. Total available mileage is about 175 miles, and this Clyde will be riding them all! Captain Clyde, that is! This is my first year leading Team Copaxone, and it has been fun, frustrating, but ultimately rewarding all at the same time. So far, we have raised over $55,000 to fight MS. Our goal is $60,000.

This isn't a plea for help (although everything is always appreciated), but I just wanted to let you all know that we Clydesdales and Athenas can be at the forefront of what is going on in cycling as well. Heavyweight Horsepower can have more than one meaning! I have a few other BFers on my team, so we'll have a good presence out there this weekend. If you are from the forums and are doing this ride, look for a big guy in a red, white, and blue Team Copaxone jersey. Say "Hi!" because I would love to meet you. Just don't be surprised if I try to recruit you for next year!

Thats great!!! I though the Jacksonville MS150 was the only one going on this weekend. It will be my first MS ride as i was sidelined last year after a crash and i'm looking forward to this one. Good luck on the ride and represent us big guys well up north. I will do my best to make a great showing down south.

It's a lot of fun. Kinda like cruising with 7,000 of your closest friends! Good luck in your MS ride and stay safe!

I'm riding it with Team Tania. Looks like we're going to have some nice weather this year.
