Bike to Create a World Free of MS on September 27 & 28

Free Team Jersey Deadline: Please register and complete your waiver by no later than July 20th to guarantee your free Team UPHS/PENN Jersey.

Recognized by Bicycling Magazine as the “Best Cycling Getaway in NJ,” the Bike MS: City to Shore Ride promises to be the best cycling experience on the east coast.

This year marks the 34rd anniversary of the Bike MS City to Shore Ride, in which Team UPHS/PENN will, with your help, be the largest team! We’re counting on new and veteran cyclists to keep the momentum going strong and join the team this September 27 & 28 for another successful year. We’ve worked with Garry Scheib, chief operating officer for UPHS, and the team’s founder, to set a systemwide goal again of recruiting 300 team members. As always, there is truly an option for everyone - you can choose to participate as a cyclist, a virtual cyclist (if you can’t ride, but want to fundraise), or a volunteer
at the team’s finish line tent. Thanks to you, the 2013 team of 288 riders raised an amazing $174,740 and qualififi ed for the highly-coveted finish line tent and won five awards.

Each person who raises the minimum $300 receives a customized team jersey to wear during the ride and access to the fi nish line tent with plenty of food & giveaways. Don’t forget about our annual UPHS/
PENN pasta dinner right before the ride.
