NEW BERN -- The Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will hold its 18th Annual MS 150 Bike Tour Sept. 8-10 in New Bern.

The 2005 event raised more than $1 million for research and treatment. Organizers expect about 1,400 riders this year and hope to better last year's total. This year's tour will features 30-, 75-, and 100-mile course options, accommodating novice and experienced cyclists. Each rider is asked to raise at least $200. Anyone interested in registering for the tour, volunteering, sponsoring a rider or making a donation should visit www.msbike.org.
