In the upcoming issue of SLmag (our annual Best of the Beehive issue) you'll find an article about the 'bike tribes' in Utah written by editor Jeremy Pugh. Jeremy interviewed a number of bikers across the state and showcases the difference in biking extremes. Whether you are an amateur rider who hops on the saddle with the kids or a die-hard, spandex clad roadie, Utah summer's are a fine time for you to exercise this healthy, fast-paced activity.

The National MS Society Utah-Southern Idaho chapter and Harmon's have teamed up and taken this past time and turned it into a disease fighting fundraiser and challenge to ride for a ms-free world.

The 25th Annual Best Dam Bike Ride takes place this weekend, June 25-26, with more than 2,500 cyclists from Utah and nearby states. Riders will pedal throughout Cache Valley on a 2-day tour, beginning at 7 a.m. both days. Riders are not required to do the whole tour, its the effort that counts. Cyclists range from 12-80 years old, so get the whole fam involved.

Rider registration is $50 before June 23 or $60 the day of the ride. Participants are required to meet the minimum fundraising goal of $250.

Funds raised go to researching a cure and local support programs and services for Utahns impacted by MS. When Bike MS began in 1986 there were no treatments available, 25 years later there are seven disease-modifying therapies.

If you can't make the ride, donations are still being accepted here and volunteers are always needed.
