MY N.Y.C. B ike MS EXPERIENCE!
By Paul Ruppert
In October (2017) I had a rather fantastic experience. I took part in NYC BikeMS. I did the 30 mile ride, which took you around the island of Manhattan. I was very nervous. - I have never ridden with so many other people. The rest stop was 20 miles into the ride. Can I even go fast enough to keep pace and not crash? This is something that I really wanted to do so I pushed it all to the back of my mind and just went on my way. Without an event like this I would never be able to ride my bike on the FDR Drive or West Side Highway. There was no need to worry
about making it all the way to the rest stop because as people came upon the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges many stopped, as I did, to take pictures. I had to build up to do this ride and it was quite a journey but it’s been a good one and worth it all. I only recently started cycling as a way to improve my health and help combat some of my MS issues and then I added this ride on as a goal. Mission accomplished. NYC BikeMS also offers a 50 and 100 mile ride. Next year I’m going to do one of those. - Paul Ruppert
