Bike MS: Keystone Country Ride 2017 @ Hollidaysburg Area High School
Jul 22 – Jul 23 all-day
Bike MS: Keystone Country Ride 2017 @ Hollidaysburg Area High School | Hollidaysburg | Pennsylvania | United States

Volunteers Needed

The Western PA ARES and BCARS members provide communications support for the Bike MS event. Operators are needed to man fixed locations, ride along with SAG wagons, and act as a tail end for the event. This is a well organized event covering two 8 hour days and 150 miles. Volunteers are provided with free food each day, as well as sleeping accommodations at a Penn State hotel. This is a good way to practice mobile operation, operating different repeaters over the course of the event, and utilizing any APRS capabilities you may have.

For 2017, all ride details are on an updated web site.  Please contact Drew McGhee, KA3EJV for additional details and to volunteer directly.

Ride Details

Date(s): Saturday, July 22 & Sunday, July 23

Start/Finish Location: Hollidaysburg Senior High School

Fundraising Minimum: $300 for the two-day ride and $200 for the one-day ride

Age Minimum: 12

Ready for the ride of a lifetime?

Bike MS: Keystone Country Ride is a 2 Day event that will take you farther than you’ve ever gone before. What makes this ride so special? Bike MS: Keystone Country Ride takes you from Hollidaysburg to State College. Our picturesque roads and rolling hills across central PA are well supported with fully-stocked rest stops every 10-12 miles, a great lunch stop each day and safety provided by medical personnel, HAM radio operators, law enforcement and motorcycle escorts. The ride begins Saturday morning at the Hollidaysburg Senior High School.

Enjoy an evening at the Penn Stater Conference Center and attend dinner, be engaged by our featured speaker, explore the campus, and check out Downtown. After your relaxing overnight stay, you will enjoy a different scenic loop back to Hollidaysburg. Don’t miss the infamous “Cookie Rest Stop,” Snow Cones at Link Rest Stop, and the Penn State Creamery. Enjoy the fantastic celebration at the finish in Hollidaysburg with chicken, pizza and live music!

Your participation will drive MS research forward faster, and deliver services to those who face the challenges of MS every day so they can live their best lives.
