TeamCBC History - Greg Shuck

Greg SchuckIn 2002, I received a call from a good friend, Cyril Sagan, who was planning on participating in his first MS150 event. It was a lengthy conversation in which Cyril stressed that he "liked running his mouth and thought he could raise money" to help fight the devastating effects of MS and he needed a sponsor (Carolina Brewing Company) for the team. Knowing Cyril quite well, my initial response was "What do I have to do and how much money is it going to cost the brewery?" He responded "nothing" to both questions. Since I have a close family member who was diagnosed with MS in 1998, I agreed to sponsor the team and TeamCBC was born.

Cyril SaganSince I did not own a bike and the thought of riding 150 miles was mind numbing, I volunteered for the 2004 MS150. That was quite rewarding, but seeing people of all ages and sizes ride their bikes inspired me to participate in 2005 as a cyclist. Cyril and I worked on growing the team and began some training rides from the brewery in 2006. The seeds for a fun cycling team had been planted, we had an abundance of resources (beer), but we lacked organization and focus.

Bob OderkirkIn 2007 Bob Oderkirk began to ride with the team. In 2008 he began to organize rides and assisted with organizing TeamCBC for what is now called BikeMS, with help from myself and Cyril. Rides became a regular part of summer, with rides occurring every two to three weeks during the training season. This gave riders more riding opportunities to get to know each other and jell as a team. In 2007 ride the MS150 participation was approximately 42 riders. In 2008, participation jumped to 91 riders who rode at BikeMS. TeamCBC is now the largest team participating in North Carolina's Eastern Chapter of the Bike MS ride bringing 170 to 200 riders per year.

Organized rides are held every week either from Carolina Brewing Company. Please see our main page for ride announcements, follow us on Facebook, and subscribe to our email list. Even if you cannot take part in the cycling events, there is always an opportunity to help out the team and our efforts to fight MS. Numerous individuals who cannot ride during year volunteer their time to support the team during the entire year, as well as at BikeMS.
