The Bike MS series is, first and foremost, a fundraising event supporting research, programs and services provided by the National MS Society. For this reason, all riders are required to raise the minimum pledge of $250.
The minimum pledge of $250 is due prior to or at packet pickup. Riders will not be eligible to pick up their packet of rider credentials unless the required minimum has been reached.
Registration fee is non-refundable, non-transferable and does not apply toward the minimum pledge.
The minimum age to participate is 12 years of age in the calendar year of the ride. For the Bike MS: Cox Atlanta Ride 2011, riders must be 12 by September 15, 2012. A parent or adult guardian must accompany eligible riders between the ages of 12-18 at all times.
All riders must submit a signed Waiver Form at a Packet Pickup to receive a rider packet. Riders between the eligible ages of 12-18 must have the Wavier Form notarized.
All riders must obey all state and local traffic laws and all law enforcement personnel, ride officials and volunteers.
Every rider must wear a bicycle helmet that complies with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission Safety Standard.
Headphones, cell phones, ear buds, radios and similar audio devices used in, on or around the rider’s head or ears are not permitted while riding.
Equipment and accessories attached to a bicycle for transporting children and pets are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to: bicycle trailers, Tag-along or Trail-a-bike products, and child carrier seats.
Riders are not allowed to transport children or animals while riding.
