More than 2-thousand bicyclists will return to the Lewis and Clark Community College campus this weekend for the annual Bike MS Gateway Getaway Ride to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  The fundraiser will draw teams from throughout the St. Louis region and could raise nearly $2-million in the fight against MS.

Angie Radcliff is Vice President of Development for the Gateway Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and says Lewis and Clark has been a great fit for the ride:

Riders will be using mainly rural roads this year through Madison, Jersey and Macoupin Counties as the ride takes them around the area on Saturday and Sunday.   Motorists are reminded to share the road with bicyclists on the designated routes, especially as the riders travel to and from the Lewis and Clark Godfrey campus.  For more details on the event, go to
