Meet Kenny Wingfield

Riding on the Greenway
This blog is devoted to MS-150 Lifetime Rider Kenny Wingfield. In addition to riding in more than 30 MS-150 tours. He has ridden from Los Angeles, CA to Boston, MA in 2002 and International Falls, MN to New Orleans, LA in 2006. All in a continued effort to raise awareness about Multiple Sclerosis and to find a cure to this devastating disease. Since 1991, Kenny has ridden over 10,000 miles to raise money for research in curing MS.

"It hasn't always been a flat road with the wind at my back. In addition to dealing with Multiple Sclerosis, many obstacles have crossed my path over the years. Please take a moment to visit my website to read why this ride and cause is so important to me."

Since September 2014, I have been training hard on my "hand crank" trike to ride in this years MS-150. After receiving a call from a friend my plans have changed. I will now be leaving Roanoke on May 24th on my 2014 Harley Triglide and will be headed West all the way to the Pacific Ocean and return.

Plans are to ride through such sites as Death Valley, Yosemite, Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks and visit several friends along this trek. We may even roll through the Badlands and visit Sturgis before returning home. This trip is slated to last at least six weeks and cover almost 10,000 miles.

To sponsor Kenny, please call the Virginia/West Virginia Chapter at 1-800-344-4867 or email Kenny at to make arrangements to send a personal check, which must be made out to the M.S. Society. My mode of transportation and distance traveled may have changed this year but my cause and desire to see a world free of MS remains as strong as ever !!!

Kenny would like to hear from you! Send him your support through email at
