Meyring Sets A New Bar In Cycling For A Cause

Meyring BikeIMG_3992Vinings resident Robert S. Meyring is managing attorney of Meyring Law Firm and an avid cyclist who believes that anything is possible with the proper planning. That is the positive attitude he brings to his law practice and also to his commitment to the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society – Georgia Chapter.

This June, Meyring is saddling up for a solo unsupported five-day, 700-mile bicycle trip from Atlanta to Washington, D.C., to raise funds for his Bike MS: COX Atlanta Peach Ride 2016 team of six years, Amy’s Armor.

“This journey allows me to combine three things that I am passionate about: helping others, being a lawyer and bicycling,” says Meyring.

Once in D.C., Meyring will be sworn in before the full U.S. Supreme Court as a Supreme Court Bar attorney. That’s a big accomplishment for him, as was completing two 300-mile solo bike rides in the last two years and a two-month cross-USA solo bike tour in 1994.

“Making a difference in the lives of friends and other people with MS, and their supportive families, is why I ride and raise funds for MS research,” Meyring says. “In Georgia, the Bike MS event raises over $1 million every year, and I am honored to be a part of that.”

Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2016, the Bike MS: COX Atlanta Peach Ride is set for Oct. 1-2 and features a new starting line at Blalock Lakes Sporting Club and community in Newnan, an overnight party in historic, downtown LaGrange and the option of a one- or two-day ride. Over 1,000 cyclists of all skill levels will enjoy 30-, 60- and 100-mile route options with beautiful countryside and hospitality along the way.
