Cyclists Descend on Cape Cod

The 33rd annual Bike MS: Cape Cod Getaway takes place this weekend as more than 2,000 cyclists embark on a two-day, 150-mile trek to raise money to help create a world free of multiple sclerosis.

Riders will leave in waves from Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts in Quincy starting at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 24, and follow the scenic South Shore.

The day will end at the Mass Maritime Academy in Bourne, where riders will spend the first night. The first riders will enter Bourne from Plymouth via Head of the Bay Road around 11 a.m. with all riders expected at the MMA by 4 p.m.

On Sunday, it’s an early start as the riders begin leaving the MMA at 5 a.m. and head for the Bourne Bridge, which will be limited to one lane for drivers and one lane for cyclists until 7 a.m.

Details of the route can be found here.

The Cape Cod Getaway benefits the National MS Society, which funds cutting-edge research into multiple sclerosis, supporting vital program and services so that those afflicted with MS can live their best.
