I'd approach shops like REI for sponsorship and support. Don't forget Performance Bicycle. Chain Reaction Bicycles in Redwood City and down toward San Jose are also excellent shops. Approach local bike shops in the area that the ride originates, and tracks around. It looks like the ride is basically a one way affair this year, so maybe some of the bigger shops in San Francisco and along the route.

Cool, thanks for the response and names of the shops. I'll forward your ideas and the names to the MS people.

I also forwarded on your earlier responses and they were very appreciative and welcome anything else you all would like to add. In fact, Megan said anyone can send comments to them directly if they wish via email: Megan at Megan.Trask@nmss.org or Jessica at Jessica.Fewless@nmss.org.

Thanks again!
