Live in Montecito and support MS fundraiser.Get ready for one of the longest, most fulfilling rides of your life. National MS Society is organizing the two-day Bike MS Coastal Challenge stretching from Santa Monica to Santa Barbara.If you live in Montecito, Bike MS could use your support. Even cheering on the riders at the end of the race is a great contribution! Locals who live in Montecito often volunteer near the stretch of the coast close to their home. Bike MS would be happy to have you on board. Volunteers eat well and get an event T-shirt.

The race comes back every year, and amateur riders are welcome! Saturday, bicyclists can choose between riding 30, 60 and 100 miles. And Sunday, riders can choose to ride either 30 or 50 miles.

The registration fee is $75 per person and the fundraising minimum is $350. Almost 80% of the money teams and individual riders raise goes directly toward MS research and services. Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of people living with MS: a $100 donation could purchase a walker and a $43,000 donation could fund a grant.
