180 miles cycle ride organised by MS Society USA

Vikram, son of VS Parthasarathy from the TAFE Business Excellence team, participated in the US BP MS 180 miles Cycle Rally, aimed towards a social cause.


The BP MS 150 is a two-day fundraising cycling ride organized by the National MS Society of the United States of America. The largest event of its kind in North America, about 14000 riders participated in the event this year, raising more than US $18 million for MS (Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, unpredictable disease that affects the central nervous system).

The ride is a 180-mile journey from Houston to Austin. Breakpoints are positioned every 8-15 miles. The ride began on Saturday (19th April) morning, taking riders through scenic roads and a stop at noon for lunch. After riding 100 miles on day one, riders camp overnight at tent grounds.


On Sunday morning, riders follow a hilly route and enjoy the sprawling terrain of Bastrop and Buescher State Parks or bypass the parks via the Pfizer Lunch Express Route. The final leg of day two takes riders into Austin for exciting Finish Line festivities.

I conducted a session on Change Management for the Anna University Staff on 20th March 2013, in Chennai, and I was very glad to know that the session was well received and appreciated by all the participants.

Here’s what the Director at Anna University had to say:
