MS Buckeye Breakaway Bike Ride

We are excited to announce that CIPLA is starting a team again for Bike MS: Buckeye Breakaway! Here is a message from the Team Captains of the CIPLA team, CIPLA Cycles:

Need a New Year’s resolution for 2023? It’s time to register for this year’s Bike MS: Buckeye Breakaway 2023 ride to Sawmill Creek Resort August 12-13, 2023. Being part of CIPLA Cycles is a great way to get fit, make new friends, and most importantly, support a great charity. The money raised by our ride helps fund research and provide equipment for those suffering from the ravages of MS.

Don’t let the mileage intimidate you from signing up! Past riders have told us that this ride is very welcoming to beginner riders. Frequent rest stops and a relatively flat route makes it easier. Plus, there are support vehicles that can pick you up and take you back to your car should you decide to cut your ride short. The point of the ride is to first raise money for a good cause and also to get to know other CIPLA members while getting fit!

Registration fees increase on June 19th, so register now! The registration fee schedule is as follows:

- $50 now

- $60 on June 19

- $70 on July 31

There is a $300 fundraising minimum per rider for this ride that must be met before you pick up your Bike MS packet.

Route options include 35, 75, and 100 miles.

For the 75 and 100 mile riders, the ride starts in Berea, OH and finishes at Sawmill Creek Resort (400 Sawmill Creek Dr W Huron, OH 44839). The start time is 6:30 am on August 12th. For 35 mile riders, the ride is a loop starting and finishing at Sawmill Creek Resort. The start time is 8:30 am. Each route includes fully-stocked rest stops every 10 to 12 miles with some of the best snacks and volunteers around. Relax, hydrate, use the restroom, re-apply sunscreen and enjoy the volunteers. Bike mechanics and support and gear (SAG) vehicles will also be on the route to assist you. There are buses available at no additional charge to transport you and your bike back to Berea, OH after the ride. There is an option to spend the night at Sawmill Creek and ride back to Berea the following day, August 13th. We expect the most popular route for the CIPLA Cycles is the 75 mile one-way route, but feel free to pick whatever route is best for you!

Feel free to invite your friends, family, and colleagues to be a part of the team. Also, look forward to a practice ride this summer to meet your CIPLA Cycles teammates. Depending on our registration numbers, we might get some team swag, too.
