LOGAN The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will hold its 22nd annual Harmons Best Dam Bike Ride June 28 and 29 at the Cache County Fairgrounds.
An anticipated 3,000 cyclists will participate in the largest two-day organized cycling event in the state, pedaling through mountain scenery to raise money to find the cause, treatments and a cure for MS.
Riders can choose from eight different routes of between 40 and 175 miles. Those who raise $500 or more will join the Spokes Club and receive a commemorative jersey.
Last year, close to 3,000 Utahns participated in the event, which raised more than $1.5 million.
The weekend-long event includes food, live music, themed rest stops and more. Most riders camp at the fairgrounds, where the tour begins and ends each day. Day One evening events include a pool party, dinner, live entertainment and an awards presentation.
To participate, riders must be 10 or older, pay a registration fee ($45 online, $50 at the site) and collect at least $250 from friends, family and co-workers to turn in by June 28. Participants can register online at www.bikeMS.org or through the Utah State Chapter, 801-424-0113, option 2. Anyone interested in helping out can register by calling the number or online at www.cureMSutah.org.
