Thousands Take Part in the Annual Bike Ride to Raise Funds for Multiple Sclerosis

Last weekend's wet weather may have changed the route but not the goal of the BP MS 150. Thousands including, Emmy award-winning reporter Christine Dobbyn, were participated in the fundraising bike ride for patients with Multiple Sclerosisin on April 19.

The two-day-long event is organized annually by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, a non-profit organization in the United States.


Organizers had to cancel the first day of the annual event scheduled on April 18 because of bad weather. The Bechtel Challenge Route that winds through the rolling terrain of Bastrop and Buescher State Parks was not used.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department confirmed that Bastrop and Buescher State Parks received 4 inches of rain in recent days. State Parks had significant standing water Park Road 1C is closed due to high, flowing water at Alum Creek. These roads were not conducive for a safe route.

The ride started at the Fayette County Courthouse in La Grange, Texas and finished in Austin.
