As many of you know, the Tour of Missouri recently announced their dates and cities for this year. The race will be from September 7 through 13 and will end in Kansas City on Sunday, September 13 for the first time. This is the week and weekend after Labor Day. Traditionally, we have hosted Bike MS: Kansas City the weekend after Labor Day.
We’re very excited about having a premier professional cycling race in the city. This is a great push for cycling, for Missouri tourism and for the economy. This event has the potential to excite the cycling community unlike anything else.
To truly embrace and take advantage of the opportunities this presents us, we have decided to move our ride. We realize this is a significant change, and as such, the staff put serious consideration into all the ramifications. After careful consideration of as many factors as possible - including impact on and availability of participants, vendors, volunteers, staff and key constituents we decided that Bike MS: Kansas City Ride 2009 will be held the weekend of September 26-27, 2009.
This means you have an extra two weeks to fundraise and to train for the ride. We also have two more weeks to prepare the event, and two more weeks to recruit riders. It also offers an opportunity to really ride the coattails of the Tour of Missouri and the wave of cycling excitement that is built by its presence in our community.
What does this mean for you?

If you have hotel rooms booked, you may want to change your reservations. A list of Sedalia area hotels can be found here.
We do understand this change may be challenging for some, with hotel room changes, possible vacation schedules or conflicts with other activities already planned. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope that making this change in February gives you time to plan and adjust accordingly.
Stay tuned for more information on exciting new details of the event. As with every year, we look forward to your support of this vital fundraiser in Kansas City. On behalf of the over 30,000 people affected by MS in the Mid America Chapter, thank you for all that you continue to do.
