On April 17 and 18, the Beeville Stingers Bicycle Club traveled to Houston to participate in the BP MS 150 Bike Ride. The ride traveled 150 miles from Houston to Austin over beautiful back roads to raise awareness and money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. This year’s ride netted more than $14 million for the cause.

The six Stingers from Beeville traveled with more than 15,000 other riders through small towns lined with people cheering and holding signs which read everything from “I have MS; thank you for riding,” and the most poignant, “Two days of pain for you, a lifetime of pain for me.” After miles and miles of wildflowers, cows and windmills, the ride ended with the cyclers tackling the hills coming into Austin and finishing in front of the Bob Bullock Museum, a building with a beautiful view of the State Capitol. Thousands of people lined the streets, cheering as the cyclers crossed the finish line.

The Stingers were sponsored this year by Aztec Chevrolet, which provided transportation, and Jane Sudell, a club member, who provided SAG vehicle support.
