About the tour
All around the country, the MS Bike provides cyclists with the opportunity to raise money for a fantastic cause, and cycle through some of the most breathtaking parts of the country.
Here in the Okanagan, we have some of the best views in Canada. Over two days, you'll cycle 100km through the valleys and mountains of Kelowna and West Kelowna. Our tour offers riders the unique opportunity to stop at a number of world-class wineries and receive complimentary samples of their finest creations. Remember - the MS Bike is a tour not a race; take your time and (responsibly) enjoy all that the Okanagan has to offer!
Last year, our tour aimed to raise $80,000 - and our riders blew that goal out of the water; we raised over $92,000! This year we're aiming for $85,000. Be a part of the movement that helps people with MS - join our tour today and start fundraising.
Think it all sounds like fun, but not sure if you can handle the cycling or the fundraising? Check out "My Rookie Story", by Christina Incrocci. She was a rookie rider in 2015 and her story speaks to her experience at last year's MS Bike tour.
Gear It Up
A fully supported tour wouldn't be complete without training rides to help get you into gear! Join your fellow cyclists at the upcoming training rides this summer (oh, and you can bring a friend, too!)
