"We monitored the weather forecast through the night, but the heavy rain, flash flood warnings and the advisement our teams on the ground deemed this an unsafe ride and safety is our top priority for everyone connected to Bike MS," organizers tweeted Saturday morning. "While this is immensely disappointing and we understand the desire to ride, we strongly discourage riding the route on your own."
Organizers said they plan to give updates next week about the next Bike MS: Texas MS 150 event.
