TeamMarj@Large was a cycling team (2005-2014) of all skill levels dedicated to enjoying the sport of cycling while bringing awareness to the cause and fight against Multiple Sclerosis. Many teammates met for regular training rides and organized rides throughout the year as they prepared for the focal ride: The Bike MS Cox Atlanta Ride out of Callaway Gardens in September.
Team co-captains through the years: Marjorie Perry, Matthew Tallman, John Rodzik, Sandy Reedy, Sandy Geisel, and Bryan Sante.
Hello, my name is Marjorie Perry. I started TeamMarj@Large after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in March 2005. Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Not that long ago, I was an avid adventure and fitness enthusiast. I began developing strange symptoms such as double/blurred vision, severe fatigue, numbness and tingling in my extremities, loss of balance, decreased cognitive abilities and loss of mobility in my right leg.
Given my love of fitness and the outdoors, it made sense to face my new challenge head on with what I know and love. So, I started a bike team! It started out as a fun group of 19 friends and each year it's grown into more and more fun with hundreds of teammates, volunteers, sponsors, friends, and supporters. We're committed to having a great time for a good cause.
