MS Bike Tour Hit New Bern NC

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

It was the biggest Bike Tour in the history of New Bern. 2700 Bikers hit the streets of New Bern on this past Saturday and Sunday, including yours truly.

MS Bike Tour

It was a sunny day, highs were to be in the mid 80’s. Bikes were lined up at 7:50am. I took the back of the pack  in order to avoid getting run over by the”serious” bikers.  My team, Team Vin was 60 strong. Some of us were riding the 75 and other were going to ride the 100 mile route. I rode the 75 mile route and it took us all over Beaufort County and part of Craven that I never knew existed.  After 7 rest stops and 5 1/2 hours of straight biking, I finished but not for the entire weekend.  On Sunday, I started the whole process over again but this time I was only going to ride the 30 mile route. 2 hours after the start, I drug my sore behind into the park.

I love this event. The MS Bike Tour is a great fund-raising event for a worthy cause and it is a blast. New Bern becomes very bike friendly during this time. It is so cool to ride over the bridge and throughout the town and ever have to stop for one traffic light!

Pictures will follow as soon as I get them.

P.s I am going to start collecting team member for next year from New Bern, so come and join Team Vin!!
