You know the drill. The plan is to go out and ride your bike or run the block. The moment comes but so do the excuses. We’ve been there and we hear you. Joining a social cycling and running camp is the perfect antidote for any excuse. That’s why we put together Camp MS Training. We get together every Monday and Wednesday at 5:30PM to pedal up and kick excuses to the curb. With 3 levels of riders ranging from basic to advanced, there is no reason to feel intimated. Then once FRIDAY comes, we’re ready to unwind with a ride at 6:30PM.  If you ready to ride, then we’re ready to have you join. Just visit www.meetup.com/Camp-MS-Training for all the details.
