The BP MS 150 is a two-day fundraising bike ride organized by the National MS Society, South Central Chapter. The ride is the largest event of its kind in North America, with 13,000 ... morecyclists, 3,500 volunteers, and countless spectators along the route and at the finish line in Austin. The fundraising goal for the 2017 BP MS 150 is $16 million dollars to bring hope to many who are affected by multiple sclerosis.
Your participation will drive MS research forward faster and deliver services to those who face the challenges of MS every day so they can live their best lives.
This is fully supported ride with food, medical support, bike mechanics and SAG support. Riders pay a registration fee and raise a miniumum of $400.
There are three official start locations for the BP MS 150 in the Houston area. The total mileage on each route varies between 160 and 180 miles to Austin, with breakpoints located every 8 to 15 miles. The ride begins Saturday morning at three convenient starting points:

The Tejas 500 mile time trial race is a RAAM Qualifier. This is our longest event and it will have (3) different start times. The 48-Hour start, takes off on Thursday 6:00 pm, then ... morea 42-hour start (6 hours later) at Midnight and also a 36-hour start at 6:00 am Friday. The object is to have all the riders and teams finish about the same time for dinner and the Awards Bash Saturday evening.
The staggered start times make for an exciting event injecting new riders onto the course. This introduction of new riders to the course adds to the excitement of each event and will work to keep riders already out on the course fired-up. All events will end in time for the Awards Ceremony. The Awards Ceremony is a fun place to meet other riders, eat and pick up trophies. With riders from most of the states in the USA and from other countries, the Awards Bash was also an unbelievable reunion (see past rider list on website) of old and new friends.
The course is a scenic and challenging 26.5 mile loop. Crews can “hand off” to their riders from the start-finish area, each lap. This venue also allows riders to “crew themselves” from the trunk of their own car, negating the need for an expensive “follow entourage”. The start-finish is a fun place for your crew and/or resting team riders to congregate and allows for a pleasant social atmosphere. Bring the family for a fun-filled day at the races! Riders, crews and teams are encouraged to pitch tents in the park under the large trees creating a tent city with a personality all its own.
If 500 miles sounds too challenging, try a four-person team. Team riders seem to make a party out of this event every year! The Texas Time Trials has become more than just a great internationally-known event; it’s a fun-filled ride, a reunion that brings RAAM legends, newbies, randonneurs and world-class Ultra racers together in a social setting to celebrate our ability to ride. This is a great event for the seasoned racer or someone wanting to try their first race.
The sale price shown is valid until August 15, the regular price goes into effect after that.
Per person late fees go into effect on August 15($25), Sept 1($50) and on race day($85).

Throughout the years GASP has evolved into one of the biggest, best bike rides in the state of Texas and beyond while at the same time ensuring the small town feel of its roots are not lost. Get ready to hop and your bike, ride a pretty long way and have a great time. We'll see you in Shiner!
