Bike MS

Two close friends of mine suffer from MS, a degenerative neurological disease with no known cure. That’s why I, with a group of friends, ride from San Francisco to Sonoma every year to raise money in support of the National MS Society.

The rides usually take place in the fall, and per-rider donations are only open during that time window. If the window is open, I’ll have a donation page ready over at BikingWhiteGuy.com. If not, but you’d still like to donate, you can do so directly through the National MS Society.

In 2018, I did a video game-themed live stream with my buddy Alexis to help hit my donation goal. You can view the archives of that stream on YouTube (Part 1, Part 2).

In 2017, I strapped a smartphone to my head and streamed live from the ride. It wasn’t exactly comfortable, but it kind of worked! If you want to view those archives for some reason, you can do so on Periscope.
