National MS Society presents 2017 BP MS 150
The BP MS 150, is a two-day, fundraising bike ride from Houston to Austin. More than 12,000 cyclists are expected to raise $16 million to stop multiple sclerosis in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever. The BP MS 150 is the largest fundraising event for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the largest fundraiser for MS research in the world.
Cyclists will start Saturday morning in Houston and follow scenic routes into Bellville for lunch with an overnight in La Grange. On Day 2 the journey continues with two route options out of the Fayette County Fairgrounds, taking riders into Austin for exciting festivities at the finish line and a one-of-a-kind view of the Texas State Capitol.
There are more than 20 BP MS 150 recommended rides to help cyclists prepare for the event. Breakpoints are located every 8-12 miles along the route featuring snacks, sports drink and water to keep you going. In addition, first aid stations, mechanical support, sunblock, and rest room facilities are provided to meet all your needs.
