We had a great time with our friends at the 2016 BP MS 150! Even  a weather shortened weekend  didn't dampen the excitement and fun. We enjoyed a great party with amazing food, refreshments and topped it all off with Blue Bell ice cream at the finish.  So far this year, our team has raised over $207,000 for the MS Society. 

Take a look at our photos and be sure to share your favorite BP MS 150 photo using #BikeBarnTX.
