This site is devoted to MS-150 Lifetime Rider Kenny Wingfield. In addition to riding in more than 40 MS-150 tours, he rode from Los Angeles to Boston in 2002, and International Falls to New Orleans in 2006. His mission…to raise awareness of Multiple Sclerosis, and to gather support to find a cure for this devastating disease. Since 1991, Kenny has ridden over 10,000 miles to raise money for research in curing MS.
A Message From Kenny
It hasn't always been a flat road with the wind at my back. In addition to dealing with Multiple Sclerosis, many obstacles have crossed my path over the years. Please take a moment to click on the "About Kenny" link at the top of the page to read why this ride and cause are so important to me.
For over 25 years I proudly rode my two wheel bicycle in MS-150 tours, and made two cross country rides to help raise awareness of MS, and raise money to help find a cure and assist folks living with this disease.
In 2015, I tried a new way to fund my cause. My plan was to ride my Harley Tri-Glide from Roanoke, VA to the Pacific Ocean and back again, a trip that was to last at least five weeks, traveling over 8,000 miles.
This trip had a disappointing ending when I had a wreck in Durango, Colorado, on my Harley, rear-ending a car and sailing over the handlebars. I was blessed and fortunate to walk out of the hospital about six hours later. The motorcycle did not fare so well.
By all standards, 2016 was a most successful riding year, having logged over 4,560 miles on my hand crank trike. My major routes this year included the MS-150 in June, from Richmond to Williamsburg on Saturday, then back to Richmond the next day. Two weeks later, I was off to Colorado…a six day, 359 mile tour through the Rockies. Please take a moment to read the BLOG I kept while on this trip.
While 2017 offers some of the same rides as last year, there will be new locations to visit and new adventures to be had. All of my efforts go to support the MSAV and to help make a difference for folks living with Multiple Sclerosis in Southwest Virginia.
I need your help and support more than ever!
