The BP MS 150 is not your average bike ride. More than 9,000 cyclists from across the country spent two days biking from Houston to Austin.

The ride raises awareness and money for multiple sclerosis. Participants say it’s a great cause, and for many riders it’s very personal.

“My wife Mary was diagnosed with MS about eight years ago,” said rider Steve Logan. “So, I’ve ridden it every year, and I’ll ride it until I can’t ride it anymore.”

The cyclists arrived at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin Sunday, and it was quite the celebration.

“While, physically, it’s really hard — especially for a guy who is not a bike rider — it’s special. Especially the people you meet. Especially the finish line,” Logan said.

The group expects to have raised $14 million to help thousands of Texans like Mary living with MS.
