Bike MS Fundraiser Will See Tri Global Energy Back on Saddle for 5th Year
Team Wind Force will saddle up May 16-17 for Bike MS Round-Up Ride 2020. Now in its fifth year, the Dallas area team has raised more than $47,700 to help people with multiple sclerosis (MS). The goal this year is $20,000.
Nearly 75,000 cyclists and more than 6,000 teams across the country ride route distances between 15 to 150 miles over one or more days each year. Touted as the world’s largest fundraising bike series, the NMSS event has generated more than $1.3 billion to date. Visit this site to find a nearby ride.
“Of course, it’s for a great cause, but it’s also a very good time, and we look forward to it every year,” Tom Carbone, Tri Global Energy president, said in a press release.
“The event is flawlessly planned and managed by the local National MS Society chapter, and whether you ride as a single biker or as a team, you’ll enjoy the camaraderie, the chance to be outdoors during the Texas spring, all while raising awareness and money to find a cure for multiple sclerosis,” Carbone added.
Team Wind Force will consist of Texas-area professionals from companies including Tri Global Energy, which specializes in renewable energy. The goal is to increase team membership from 12 last year to between 15 and 20 members this year.
The two-day, 163-mile ride starts in Frisco, and ends with cyclists pedaling along the bricks of downtown Fort Worth into Sundance Square. Route and other details about Bike MS Round-Up Ride 2020 will be available soon.
Bike MS participants may ride as individuals or as part of a team. Each ride event has a fundraising minimum and offers a unique local flavor, food and beverages, and mechanical and medical assistance. Through their teams, supporters pledge donations to the NMSS.

“Cycle the coast of Maine, ride traffic-free through New York City streets, relax at a rest stop in a California winery, or finish your ride at our largest event with 10,000 other cyclists in Houston. Every Bike MS event is an unforgettable journey,” the NMSS states on its website.
The NMSS supports work into better understanding and treating multiple sclerosis, and caring for patients and their families. It has invested more than $1.06 billion in research projects to date.
