Locals cyclists ride across Carolinas to help fight MS

Grand Strand Bicycles of Murrells Inlet and Myrtle Beach had 26 riders join more than 1,200 others bike across the Carolinas to help fight Multiple Sclerosis in the 26th annual Bike MS: Breakaway to the Beach Ride last weekend.
The event, which raises money for the National MS Society, began in the greater Charlotte, N.C.,  and Columbia areas and ended in Sunset Beach, N.C. The Grand Strand Bicycles team had 15 riders complete 100 miles each day, six of whom completed their first “century” ride (100 mile ride), and seven who completed their first 75 mile ride.
GSB club riders and guests join for group training rides each Saturday at 7:30 a.m. at the Murrells Inlet shop located in Woodside Village in Murrells Inlet. Up to 100 riders will depart in three groups based on speed and experience level
and ride 20 to 40 miles. Also from the Murrells Inlet location, group rides are held Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 7:30. A more laid-back ride departs from the Myrtle Beach location in the Sports Corner at 515 E Hwy 501  every Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. for beginners.

During the summer months, a weekly criterium race is held each Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. in a traffic-free, half-mile circuit in the Murrells Inlet area, which has led to the formation of a GSB Race Team for 2012 that will represent the area in races along the East Coast. For further information GSB, group training rides, or other group events like the Bike MS, call 843-839-3702 in Myrtle Beach, 843-652-3700 in Murrells Inlet,  or look for Grand Strand
