The Bike MS Buckeye Breakaway (formerly Pedal to the Point) is a two-day bicycle ride from Brunswick to Ashland, Ohio. The ride is 75 miles each way, with a 100-mile option on the first day. The one-day options are 30, 75, or 100 miles. The fundraiser event is organized by and benefits the Ohio Buckeye local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
For over 20 years, Century Cycles has been proud to be an Official Event Bike Shop for our local Bike MS ride, and continue as a Gold Level Sponsor for 2015. We provide mechanical support at one of the rest stops on the route and have many staff members who participate personally in the event.
Team Left Hand/Century Cycles
Century Cycles formed our first shop team for BikeMS in 2014. Team Century Cycles had a successful inaugural year, raising over $20,000 for the National MS Society!
In 2015, we are stepping it up a notch and have joined forces with the Left Hand Brewing Company of Longmont, Colorado to form Team Left Hand/Century Cycles!
Now in their eighth year of riding, Team Left Hand consists of riders from across the U.S. who volunteer their time and effort to help the National MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and help people living with MS.
"Bike MS isn’t just a two-day event; it’s an enduring commitment to making a difference in the fight against MS,” states Chris Lennert, Left Hand's national Team Captain.
