Then you have the "Country Challenge Bike Ride" MS-20/50/100 mile bike tour in the month of September. MS Mid-Jersey Chapter and the MS Greater North Jersey Chapter merged October 1, 2008. To form the New Jersey Metro Chapter. This newly formed New Jersey Chapter also does a MS Walk in the month of April and "Hops to Hops" ride in early September.
Their are Multiple Sclerosis pages up from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and from Delaware. Local Multiple Sclerosis links for information, volunteers and trying out MS bike tour that each chapter in New Jersey and in neighboring states does.

If you like to donate online. The link is below to the direct donation page. Thank You ahead of time.

"Bike Mike Made
(September 4, 2008) . . . Big Mike and his friend John made the New Jersey Section of the New Jersey Star Ledger newspaper on July 25, 2008. It included a huge photo of him and his great friend John. A wonderful story by Star Ledger Reporter Elizabeth Moore.
John and Big Mike made Eagle Scout rank on June 22, 2008. It is a special scout troop. Both John and Mike are very happy. Yes....it did take a very long time. It was hard. It was really worth it.
Sorry . . . this site is not allowed to mention Mike's friend John full name or a photo of his friend John on this site.
"Bike Mike World
(July 1, 2010) . . . Mike started a 2 page webpage back in July of 1995 on what use to be Prodigy Classic. Anyone remember Prodigy Classic? Then the webpage name changed. Was allowed to add stuff like photos, music and links as time gone on. The storage for members got bigger. Can add more photos and more pages to "Big Mike's Airwaves" webpages. Went from "Big Mike's Airwave" . . "Big Mike Jr's World" . . "Big Mike's World" . . then to the current website name and it stuck like glue ever since . . "Bike Mike World". The Website image also has changed.
More stories with some photos will be coming during the month of July.
"Thanks From Mike"
(November 4, 2010) . . . Because of the amount of money raised for the 2010 "Great NJ Country Bike Ride". He wanted to say thanks to a couple of people.

Bike Mike's 23rd Coast the Coast
(May 19, 2016) . . . It was Mike's 23rd in the Multiple Sclerosis "Coast the Coast" 170 mile bike tour that was May 21 and 22, 2016. It did rain a bit on and off thru the weekend.
It is the "Coast the Coast" 25th Anniversary this year. The NJ Metro Chapter has been running the "Coast the Coast" for 25 years. Nice !! :)
Mike had a problem with the bike earlier this spring. The right lever for gear shifting broke. The spring that keeps the lever in place was lose and dangling.
Mike broke records for sure in the "Coast the Coast" 2016. He raised 6,200.00 as of June 2016.
25th Anniversary For Bike Mike
September 19 and 20, 2015 has marked Mike's 25th (Sept. 1990 - Sept. 2015) year cycling and helping raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. It was a great 25 years riding and raise money for MS for 25 years. #tunnelvision #siked #pumped #BikeMikeStrong #bikems #bikemsnjm. Wanna read all past and present stories from newspaper to his own stories. Then CLICK HERE to read it all up. Mike plans to cycle another 25 more years.
Just so you know! It is a total of both New Jersey MS bike tours that Mike does. The "Coast the Coast" in May and "New Jersey Country Challenge" in September. All to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis.
If it was not for this girl name Rachael in 1988 in Camp Marcella and Mike's mother. He would be in the MS bike tours.
It was Mike last and final year as a camper to Camp Marcella. He liked this one girl name Rachael. So in August of 1988. Mike rode his heavy black and red Kent bicycle on Route 10 to see Rachael that use live in Newton, NJ. Thought it was going to take 3 hours. Wind up taking almost 7 hours. Mike was pooped when he finally reached the house by bicycle. Hung out and all. Took the NJ State Cab home. Cost $65.00 to get back home. My mother did not know I did this. Because of this ride to Rachael house in Newton, NJ. Bike Mike loved the distance and the ride on the road.
Mike started cycling in MS bike tours back in September of 1990. He saw a small article in the New Jersey Star Ledger newspaper during the summer of 1990. He then went to a bike shop called Montclair Diamond Cycles. Got himself a brand new bicycle. It was a Miyata 112 blue and white 12 speed bike. He did it for the challenge to see if he can cycle 100 miles. Then as time gone by. He learned about MS. Wanting to help raise money for MS. Ride for a cause. Then Mike started doing 2 MS bike tours in NJ since 1995.
Bike Mike has no plans on stopping.

"Destructioncraft on MineCraft"
August 23, 2013 . . . Wanna play a really great game. Try out MineCraft. Wanna try out a really cool server. That server I am talking about is DestructionCraft.com. It is fun and great people. Might have a few hot heads on there. But that why Desturctioncraft has online staff. Desturctioncraft in my opinion is rated PG-15 and up. They allow certain foul words in chat. It is a great server tho. The game server has Towny, Creative, KitPVP, SkyBlock, Prison, SkyWars, Faction and some minigames. To get ingame money. You sell, vote, auction and lottery. What are you waiting for? Go check out DC website.
Follow me on Instagram and Sqor Sports. Roll your mouse over the name above. Bookmark it when you get there.
