More than 2,000 bicyclists will trek from Carlsbad to Mission Bay on Sunday morning in a charity bike ride that is expected to raise $3 million for multiple sclerosis research and programs.

The event, called the Bike MS Bay to Bay Tour, is set to start at 7 a.m. when cyclists will begin to leave from the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa, according to the National MS Society’s Pacific South Coast Chapter, which is sponsoring the event.

Cyclists will then make their journey through city streets to the tour’s finish line at Crown Park in Mission Bay, where they are expected to begin arriving about 10:30 a.m.

Riders participating in the tour, now in its 35th year, will include people with MS, as well as their friends and family members, the National MS Society said.
