Ashby with Mark and Tanya Nordhaus - Tanya is our team captain and inspiration!

Welcome. Along with Team Circle of Friends, since 2004 I have ridden BikeMS events to help raise money for the National MS Society. They provide both services and support for those affected by MS, and also fund important research. MS is a devastating disease that affects many folks I know, directly or as a family member. As well know too many folks who have lost loved ones to this disease. Our team captain, Tanya, rode in these events for 10 years before being diagnosed with MS herself in 2001. We, Team Circle of Friends, continue to ride alongside her as she and we all pedal the miles to help to hopefully end MS.

This year I am riding in both Michigan BikeMS events – West MI in Holland, MI in mid June, and Bavarian Breakaway in Frankenmuth, MI in late Sept.  So your donations go towards two 2-day rides. For June I am shooting for the 75 mile route on both days, and Sept shooting for the 100 mile route on both days. Check out the BLOG PAGE for updates on training and during the event weekends. To get updates in your email when new blog posts are up, you can subscribe below.

To give back to all you sponsors, I pick up raffle items at a farmer’s market along the event routes to bring to the day’s finish line, and choose winners about a week after each ride.  This year, we have an extra treat for you as my friends Scott and Laura picked up some of their favorite local Holland, MI gifts and goodies for me to raffle off too!  See the Raffle Prizes Page for details. All sponsors – whether big or small donations – get you entered into the raffle!!
