Please check back on August 16th for an update regarding the status of each event.

MS Bike is the largest fundraising cycling series in North America and it’s the experience of a lifetime! Every year since 1989, cyclists of all ages and fitness levels across the country get together to end Canada’s disease: multiple sclerosis. Excitement, challenge, and community; we know you’ll leave with a sense of great accomplishment.

Biking in the beautiful Cowichan Valley is an experience of breathtaking views and sumptuous flavors. Artisanal cheese makers, slow-food chefs and award-winning wineries await.

The ride begins Saturday at the prestigious Brentwood College School. Throughout your ride you can stop and enjoy local wineries, farms, and artisans and sample delicious local fare. Upon your return, spend the afternoon at Rider Village where your experience will continue with appetizers, a gourmet dinner and evening musical festivities.

On Sunday, wake up to breakfast and head out with friends, family and coworkers to explore more of the Cowichan Valley. Finish your experience with a BBQ lunch and celebrate your success at the closing ceremony!

Whether you are competing to be the strongest team or fighting for a cause that’s close to home, we’ll be right with you for every challenge, every breakthrough and every triumph. Join the fight to improve the lives of Canadians affected by MS . The dollars you raise are invested in world-leading MS research that will bring us closer than ever to finding a cure for the disease. Together we can end MS!
