The Multiple Sclerosis Society will hold it's 18th annual 'Pedal to the Point' bike tour August 21-22, 2004. With over 1,600 participants, 500 volunteers and raising $800,000 annually, this two-day, 150-mile tour is one of the MS Society’s top twenty events nationwide and one of the largest bike tours in the Midwest.

The ride begins outside of Cleveland and travels through Northern Ohio to Sandusky for the overnight stay. While in Sandusky, riders will enjoy dinner and entertainment. After a flying pancake breakfast, riders will return to Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds for a celebratory picnic. Cyclists participating for two days will receive a free ticket to Cedar Point.

The tour is fully supported with frequent rest stops, an abundance of food, medical and mechanical support, and dedicated volunteers and staff.

Over the past 16 years, the MS 150 Bike Tour has seen almost 20,000 cyclists and raised over $8 million.
