More than 700 cyclists geared up for the MS Society’s 23rd annual Biking to the Viking MS Bike Tour this past weekend.

Organizers say over $393,000 was raised for those living with MS, with many pledges still coming in.

Cyclists rode 160 kilometres from Stonewall to Gimli and back on August 25-26.

“It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to finish; it doesn’t matter what kind of gear that you own,” said Wendy O’Malley, president of the MS Society. “It just matters that you ride.”

All funds raised during the ride stay in Manitoba to help raise awareness for the fight against multiple sclerosis.
