Bike MS: Ride Across Minnesota will bring hundreds of cyclists through central Minnesota this summer.

Greater Mankato Growth President Jonathan Zierdt said the event is meant to help fund research into multiple sclerosis. “There are 600 to 700 riders that, in mid-July, will travel over 100 miles in five days,” he explained.

The event begins in St. Peter on Sunday, July 15th with stops in Northfield, Owatonna, Waseca, Mankato, and wrapping up back in St. Peter the following Friday.
