The 2021 MS 150 will be a one-day loop ride starting and finishing at Blaine National Sports Center. You have the option of a route approximately 22 miles or 75 miles.
*Please note, routes are tentative.
In order to have the best chance at an in-person event in 2021, we are holding the MS 150 as a 1-day event this year. Riders will begin at Blaine National Sports Center on the morning of Saturday, June 12th, with staggered start times. They will travel approximately 75 miles and finish at the Blaine National Sports Center, with rest stops on the way.
Please note: some of the mileage between rest stops is closer to 15-18 miles.
Parking: Participants will enter/exit the National Sports Center grounds off of 105th Ave NE and be directed into Lot E or Lot C. No access to the grounds will be gained off of 109th Ave NE due to bicycle traffic. Parking is limited so carpooling with others from the same household is strongly encouraged.
Complete challenges and mileage goals as you train and take on the open road.
Your training rides bring you out into your community and past some scenic destinations and we want to see them too!

Bike MS is an extraordinary ride no matter where you are! Whether you have a flat tire or need a snack to help get you across the finish line, we’ve got you covered…
Each route included fully-stocked rest stops every 10 to 12 miles with some of the best snacks and volunteers around. Relax, hydrate, use the restroom, re-apply sunscreen and enjoy the volunteers. Bike mechanics and support and gear (SAG) vehicles will also be on the route to assist you.
Pre-packaged Grab-and-go lunch available at the finish line.
To ensure safety on the ride, we will have pre-packaged snacks at rest stops, hand sanitizer will be available throughout the event, and signage will promote social distancing. Please refer to the Bike Safety & COVID-19 page for more safety information.

A HUGE thank you to everyone that joined us for 2021 Bike MS: MS 150! Thank you cyclists, volunteers, and sponsors, especially our Local Presenting Sponsor, C.H. Robinson! Remember, you still have time to fundraise before the deadline and reach our $1.6 million goal. It was amazing gathering in person again and seeing 1400 participants come together for our mission, a world free of MS.
