METRO Welcomes MS-150 Cyclists


METRO greeted thousands of bicyclists as they started their two-day, fundraising bike ride for multiple sclerosis on April 28, in a Houston-to-Austin bike ride. 

Organized by the National MS Society, the BP MS 150 ride is the largest event of its kind in North America with 13,000 cyclists, 3,500 volunteers and hundreds of cheering fans along the route. 

METRO was a part of this community event as it welcomed many of those riders at its Addicks Park & Ride lot - a mammoth lot with hundreds of parking spaces. A huge banner hung at the entrance, welcoming riders to this two-day event. 

Cyclists were allowed to park their cars during this event, and friendly METRO staffers made sure the competitors felt welcomed and safe.

If you used the Addicks Park & Ride as a staging area for your MS 150 ride, let us know and share your photos. We’d love to hear from  you. The photos posted above are by Margaret Dunlap, a senior Public Affairs rep who worked the event. 

Congrats to all of you who made the arduous but joyful trip to Austin for a worthy cause!
