Topeka -- The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is now registering cyclists for the 2001 Multiple Sclerosis Bike Tour.
The tour will take cyclists through 150 miles of Kansas Countryside and area lakes to raise money to fight multiple sclerosis. It will begin at 7 a.m. Sept. 15, at Washburn Rural High School, Topeka, and will end in Lawrence on Sept. 16 at Southwest Junior High School.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will have free training rides in Topeka and Lawrence for all participants.
Registration for the tour is $35 until Aug. 24, and then the cost increases to $50. Participants are required to raise a minimum of $150 in pledges, which will go toward multiple sclerosis research and providing programs for people affected by the disease in eastern Kansas and western Missouri.
