REMINDER/21st Edition of the RONA MS Bike Tour: Cycling to End MS!

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 26, 2010) - During the last two weekends of August, cyclists of every stripe are invited to take part in the 21st edition of the RONA MS Bike Tour to end MS. This year, the activity, which is organized for the benefit of the Quebec Division of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, will offer two routes that have been newly designed by the team at Vélo Québec ÉVÉNEMENTS. For fun, for fitness or to find a cure for this incurable disease, join in this cycling event, in the Saint-Hyacinthe region on August 21 and 22, and in the Basses-Laurentides region on August 28 and 29, 2010.

Form a team to meet the challenge!

Last year, the 1,500 participants in the RONA MS Bike Tour raised a record $1,450,000 to fund research and services for people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and their families. Together with your family, friends or co-workers, form a TeamMS and you too will contribute to ending MS! There is a choice of two routes for the occasion: a 150-km, two-day route or a 75-km route on Sunday. Real cycling enthusiasts will be able to enjoy some optional 25-km loops as well.

An invitation from Patricia Paquin

As event spokesperson for her 11th year, Patricia Paquin, host at Rythme FM Montréal, urges you to join the big Bike Tour family: "The RONA MS Bike Tour is based on solidarity and on heart: all the cyclists get together to share the road, meet old friends or make new ones, contribute generously to the cause, and show their support for the thousands of Quebecers, like my sister Caroline, who have MS. I'm proud to be part of this wonderful team and I hope to see you with us this year!"
