About Us .

Mission

Raise awarness in communities across America and connect people with the cause via cross country bicycle rides that raise funds to address the challenges of those affected by multiple sclerosis and help fund research for a cure.

Vision

We envision a world where engaged citizens give back through adventure and where no one has to hear the words, "you have MS."

Values

Our top three priorities are to make a positive impact in the lives of everyone living with multiple sclerosis, to be safe on the road and to have fun.

Cassie Wertz

Executive Director

Cassie joined Bike the US for MS as a cyclist in 2011 on the Northern Tier Route. Her college roommate had been diagnosed and biking across the country to fight MS seemed like the perfect way to spend the summer. She has a Masters Degree in Public Administration from the University of Montana and has played a critical role in growth of the organization.

Kaylyn Messenger

US Route Director

Kaylyn signed up to ride the Northern Tier in 2015 in honor of her Aunt. She approached the ride like she does life: dive in head first, embrace adventure with a smile and be dedicated to making a difference. Before getting back on the road in 2016 as a Route Leader for the TransAm team, Kaylyn graduated with a Psychology degree from Bowling Green State University.
