About Larry Sietsma

In my former lives, I was a US Marine fighter pilot, an airline pilot and an affordable home builder but I am presently retired.  Over the last 2 years, I have ridden over 15,000 miles including the Northern Tier and Pacific coast for Bike the US for MS.  The MS rides are an amazing experience and it is extremely rewarding to benefit those with MS.  

My sister and several friends suffer from MS.  In past years, most of my riding has been for pleasure but it is many times better to do it for such a great cause.  This year, I will be riding for Marion, Dolly, Doc, Pam, Evie, Dawn, Susan, Carrie and Zach. 

This summer's ride will be a cross between the Northern Tier and Pacific Coast.  Stretching between San Diego and St. Augustine, it will cover over 3,000 miles.  Averaging over 65 miles per day, there will be hills, heat and who knows what else.  I will cover my own expenses but, if you would like to make a tax deducticble donation for MS research, it would be greatly appreciated. 

Simply click on the box next to my photo on this page or mail a check (with my name on the memo line) to Bike the US for MS, Box 10001, Blacksburg, VA 24062.  You can be sure your donation will be well spent toward MS research and in directly assisting those with MS.

The MS organization will send you a receipt and, most importantly, they will not bug you for futire contributions.  Thank you for your help to find a cure for MS.
