Sorry, this video is no longer available

Athletes have been biking for the last three days to help out Minnesotans living with Multiple Sclerosis.

About 700 bikers started a journey Thursday, to ride 300-miles through the Northland for the 26th annual Bike MS: Tram Ride.

Sunday they rode into Spirit Mountain to rest up.

Funds raised will go to programs and services for people with MS as well as drive research projects.

“We are going to be raising more than $700,000 dollars,” said Emily Wilson, National MS Society Upper Midwest Chapter vice president of marketing and public relations. “Those funds will go to help people living with MS to live their best lives and to really find solutions for people who are affected by all different courses of this disease.”

Cyclists will head to Two Harbors Monday.
