A bike ride bringing thousands of people to New Bern providing a boost for the town and raising money to fight Multiple Sclerosis has been canceled due to Hurricane Dorian.

The Bike MS Ride was set for New Bern this Saturday. Close to 1,900 riders from 28 states were expected for the weekend making it the largest Bike MS Ride in the southeast.

Veteran cyclists say this is the first time they can remember the ride being canceled.

Riders this year have raised $1.3 million so far.

MS is a disabling disease that affects the brain, spinal cord and overall central nervous system.
