Random commentary – thought-provoking questions – and the occasional rant…
Welcome to the website for the Wheeler Dealers Bike MS Fundraising Team (Click HERE to help support our fundraising efforts)
Why Do We Ride? To raise money and awareness to Fight MS and bring an end to this horrible disease.
Our team captains, Chad Smith and Joe Siok, both have direct family connections to MS, which is how they met. (Their wives are Tricia and Trisha – go figure) They took on the task of co-chairing the event back on 2002, when it was definitely struggling. With the help of some amazing and committed volunteers on the committee, they turned the event into THE best supported fundraising ride in Illinois that brings in well over $1M annually.
Their teams merged in 2018 and collectively have raised ~$2M to help fight this disease!
The 2020 Bike MS Tour de Farms is a “virtual” event unfortunately. But “rule following” has never been Joe and Chad’s strong suit, so they are hosting their own team ride on that same day. The team is absolutely committed to raising money to Fight MS!
