LONDON ONTARIO MS SOCIETY BIKE RIDE HAS RRT ASSISTANCE

MS Bike provides Canadians with the opportunity to ride through scenic and often spectacular parts of the country while raising money to help end Multiple Sclerosis. Every year more than 10,000 cyclists participate in one- or two-day tours between June and September.

The early, sunny morning of July, 25, 2015, 1,581 cyclists began their bike ride for the MS Society in Grand Bend Ontario Canada. The riding commenced at 7:30am and bikers cycled through the scenic countryside to London, ON.   They then rode from London, ON back to Grand Bend on July 26, 2015 to complete a total of a 150km ride.

On July 25, 2015, as riders began to preparing to begin their ride in Grand Bend, a team of 23 RRT volunteers assisted the MS team in London, ON with setting up for the day. The enthusiastic RRT team started by assembling tents and tables, cutting fruit, preparing sandwich wraps, bagels, filling coolers of water and drinks, as well as many other tasks.  As the riders began to arrive, RRT volunteers met each one and offered hydration and refreshments as they crossed the finish line.
