An estimated 500 bicyclists and 125 support people raising money for the fight against Multiple sclerosis (MS) are expected to be staying overnight in Benson, Thursday, July 25.  Most of the bikers and their support teams will be camping out at Ambush Park.

The City of Benson agreed last year to host the bikers and is looking for the community to extend a welcome during an evening of entertainment and camaraderie at the park. There will be a beer garden sponsored by the Benson Golf Club, singing groups, city bus rides around the community, “people mover” wagon rides and food provided.

The community is asked to join the bikers to extend its local hospitality.

The bikers will be coming in from Ortonville between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Many will visit the downtown area, shopping in local stores...
