8:58 a.m., Sept. 17, 2013--The University Derailleurs, composed of employees, students, alumni and friends of the University of Delaware, will participate for the 21st year in the MS Bike to the Bay fundraiser for multiple sclerosis research on Sept. 21-22.
Participants can choose from various distances ranging from 17 to 100 miles per day, riding from Dover to Dewey Beach on Saturday and reversing the course on Sunday.
Over the past 20 years, more than 250 University Derailleurs team members have raised over $83,000, and this year's goal is an additional $5,000. Pledges and donations are welcome, and interested bike riders are invited to join the team.
The team will be riding in honor of Althea McDowell, former program coordinator of the Americans with Disabilities Act program at UD.
