The “Bike MS: Bike the Bluegrass” event, hosted by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, is returning to Central Kentucky on June 2-3. 

St. Catharine College will host the event, which helps raise money to fight MS, for the second-consecutive year, and routes will run through five counties, but primarily Washington and Marion counties.

Last year was a success at St. Catharine, raising $175,000 according to MS Society Development Coordinator Mary Carabella.

There will be routes of 25, 50, 75 and 100 miles on the the first day of the ride, with options of 50 and 75 miles on day two. New rest stops this year include Limestone Branch Distillery and Popes Creek Ranch in Lebanon.

 Registration for the ride has been open since Nov. 1, and anyone interested can still register at www.bikekyw.nationalmssociety.org.
