Are you ready for the MS Bike experience? You’ll conquer Canada’s best roads and accomplish your wellness goals, while accelerating the pace of MS breakthroughs and empowering people affected by MS to live their best lives. You are changing the future of MS and we will be here to fully support you through every kilometer of your journey.

A little city, a little country, the MS Bike Okanagan Experience has both and so much more. Spend the weekend leisurely riding through picturesque streets and scenic landscapes, or challenge yourself and take on the 100km route.

No matter your cycling style, speed, or the route you choose, this weekend will have you enjoying stunning views of Lake Okanagan and complimentary samples from the area's best wineries and orchards at rest stops. Electronic bikes are welcome!

This ride is fully supported with marked and mapped routes, a support-and-gear vehicle, and volunteers who will take any of your purchases back to the finish line. You'll also be treated to breakfasts, lunches, and dinner on Saturday night to celebrate and socialize with your new MS Bike friends.

Experience the Okanagan from the best seat in the house your bike!
