MS Bike Tour Rides Through Town

June 9, 2007

This weekend, chances are you'll see more bikes hitting the pavement than cars.

Cyclists are on the roads in full force this weekend for the 19th Annual MS Bike Tour.

Bikers are riding hundreds of miles to raise money to find a cure for MS.

Event organizers hope to raise more than $460,000 dollars.

"Everything is going really well. We have a great number of people out here today. It's a record number for us," said Robyn Mauney.

Because the tour will take place throughout Charlottesville, Albemarle and Fluvanna counties, drivers should be aware that dozens of roads will be closed throughout the weekend.

More than 650 riders are participating.
