If you were at the 6th Annual Fort Collins Bike MS, you might have seen our awesome Tidewater tent:
The 2-day Bike MS adventure offered route options for ALL cycling abilities: rolling hills after departing from Front Range Community College in Westminster, through the quaint towns and back roads of the Colorado foothills or through the mountain climbs surrounding Horsetooth Reservoir before descending into the city of Fort Collins. Those bikers that opted to do the full loop stopped overnight at Colorado Statue University.
FLEXX Productions loves supporting amazing organizations such as Bike MS, which was started just over 30 years ago. The organization’s goal is to mobilize people and resource in order to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
In 1980, 200 cyclists rode the first Bike MS ride from Minneapolis to Duluth with an overnight stop in Hinckley and raised $33,000 for the Minnesota Chapter. In 1985, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society adopted the ride as an official event to be held in every chapter. Today, there is at least one ride offered in every day and Fort Collins proudly hosts one. Since Bike MS began in 1980, cyclists have raised more than $1 billion.
The team at FLEXX Productions especially loves this event because it aims to pull the whole community together by gathering support from local businesses, elected officials, residents and people living with MS. Since each event is organized by individual chapters, the Fort Collins Loop certainly has a unique flare and flavor. We can’t wait to be a part of this event again next year!
