Sheridan to Host Annual Bike MS Fundraising Ride

Posted in

In a couple of weeks, close to 300 cyclists will converge on Sheridan and the surrounding area for Bike MS: Wyoming’s Bighorn Country Classic. The ride is a fundraiser for the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Heather Roe Day, who's the independent community engagement consultant with the Colorado-Wyoming MS Chapter in Cheyenne, says funds raised by the ride help to support vital programs and research that benefit Wyomingites affected by MS.

Wyoming has one of the highest incidences of MS in the nation - one person in 350 lives with MS in the state, compared to one person in 750 nationally. The ride will take place August 13 and 14 will start and finish on the Sheridan College campus and follow a course that takes cyclists through Sheridan, Ucross, Buffalo, Story, Banner, Dayton and Ranchester.
