What we're about

Mission Statement:

We love to ride bicycles and want to improve the quality of life for the 45,500 people affected by MS in Orange, San Diego and Imperial counties in Souther California.

Why We Ride:

We ride because some of us who have direction connection to MS but all have a passion to be part of the movement to make the world free of MS. Our weekly ride culminates in the Annual Bay-to-Bay Bike MS in October.

Most of us have been together for over five years. Some have participated in Bike MS for 15 years.

Our Gang:

We are a diverse, progressive and spirited group. We came together because our love to ride bicycles and our desire to give back to the community. Group activities also involve other social and charitable functions. We welcome new members and fresh ideas.

Our Sunday Ride:

We ride on every Sunday. The ride is a social ride for every level of riding skills. The policy is "No Rider Drop", frequently re-grouping during the ride.

We have different routes every week in OC, San Diego and nearby counties. We also participate in other organized bike events such as Tour of Palm Spring, Grand Fondo, San Diego Century, etc.

At the end of the ride, we meet for coffee, yogurt, brunch, etc.

Besides the Ride:

We organize events such as birthday parties, regular dinners, Wine Tasting & WII Championship, Pizza parties, etc. We volunteered at Water Stop for the OC Aids Ride. We raise money for Autistic Endeavors, organize Toy Drives for Operation Homefront, walk and raise money for Arthritis Foundation, and participate other events.
