Six hundred and ninety-one cyclists completed Bike MS: Ride the Vineyard fundraising ride, in the sun on Saturday with more than 100 volunteers and five Island businesses providing support. Sixteen states were represented. Twenty-two riders were from the Vineyard. A portion of the $450,000 that was raised for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will be shared with the Martha’s Vineyard Boys and Girls Club.
