The Norton Rose Fulbright team consists of cyclists from more than 20 offices across the globe.
Their enthusiasm is appreciated, as their riders are coming from all around the world and will likely comprise the biggest first-year team in the ride's history. An estimated 13, cyclists will take part in the two-day, mile ride from Houston to Austin, Texas on April I'm proud of our international team of cyclists all of whom are eager to take on this spirited challenge in the Texas heat. We look forward to putting the full support of our global practice behind this exceptional charity.
Norton Rose Fulbright's team, who will fund its own travel and expenses, has begun its fundraising efforts for contributions to the National MS Society. A progressive neurological disease, multiple sclerosis affects more than 2 million people worldwide, mostly between 20 and 50 years old. Currently, there is no known cure. Norton Rose Fulbright is a global legal practice. With 9, cyclists, 3, volunteers, and countless spectators along the mile route between Houston and Austin, the BP MS ride is the largest fund-raising event for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The Houston-to-Austin event is historically dominated by Houston-based companies in the energy sector with less than 7 percent of the riders coming from Austin. Six tech companies joined forces for the event, taking on a grueling ride and great cause together. For the more than 70 riders from FacebookPlanviewProtivitiPROSSailPointand Wells Fargoplanning began months ago with daily conditioning and weekly training rides to build strength and endurance for the mile trek.
The two-day ride requires an overnight stopover.

This year, six companies with roots in the tech industry decided to pool resources for their tent in La Grange, Texas. Cyclists begin the ride in Houston, only to overnight in La Grange before striking out for the remaining miles, and the hilliest portion of the ride, into Austin.
The best part of the weekend is the finish line. It marks the end of an incredible experience, but it is also the milestone in an ongoing journey for the hundreds of people living with MS who attend.
The overnight in La Grange gives them a chance to replace the calories burned on day one … as many as 10, … recharge mentally and share stories of the experience with other riders. With the great cause, motivation is surprisingly easy to come by, despite the grind.
