Many to gather in DeKalb for Bike MS: Tour de Farms
A hamburger topped with a fried egg is a unique concept and it has become a staple for cyclists riding in Bike MS: Tour de Farms, the annual charity bike ride through the countryside of northern Illinois that benefits the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater Illinois Chapter. For the past six years, Team Kroeschell has made this simple delicacy known as the “Kroeschell Burger” their team’s defining centerpiece, serving up hundreds to Bike MS participants at the event’s most popular rest stop on the route, helping to energize cyclists in their quest to complete the 15 to 200-mile course.
On Saturday and Sunday, Team Kroeschell will once again be serving up their delectable burgers and riding along with the more than 2,500 cyclists expected to participate in the 31st annual Bike MS: Tour de Farms, which starts and finishes at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center, 1525 W. Lincoln Highway, in DeKalb. For the first time this year, the route will take cyclists through DeKalb’s downtown business district.
“I look forward to Bike MS every year, and every year my team finds a way to give back a little more,” Bob Calkins, captain of Team Kroeschell and resident of Park Ridge, said according to a news release. “We make T-shirts for our team with a list of those we know affected by MS and each year we add a few names to the list. It’s a symbol of how many lives our Bike MS involvement touches, and it serves as a reminder of why we ride.”
