a party on wheels

All group rides have routes, rest stops, support vehicles and sometimes too much spandex, but no other ride has the team party atmosphere like Bike MS. In fact, over 85% of riders are a part of a team. Every September, the Boone County Fairgrounds transforms into a team tent village, and the Bike MS party on wheels begins. Our teams put out impressive spreads, hire massage therapists, roast pigs, and more. Since there is some downtime when you are not riding, teams are a great way to have fun before, during, and after a ride.
