                                                     "Once a CLAM, Always a CLAM"

Joe and Polly inherited the TBA MS team from Mike & Terry Smith in 2004.  They were our role models in  being team captains and in learning to ride a tandem.  We owe them a debt of gratitude on both accounts and we are truly grateful for their patience and guidance. 

"Once a CLAM, always a CLAM" is our motto.  We are proud to say that many people do in fact ride one year, take a year or two off and then return to the team.  At our first meeting in the fall of 2004, we put our thoughts together and came up with the CLAMS name (Cycling Legs Against MS).  Our jersey logo was developed by graphic design artist, Jason Smith, and we are very proud of his efforts to create our one of a kind image.

The CLAMS are a group of cyclists dedicated to raising funds to further research to find a cure for MS. Over the past 10 years, our team has raised and donated over $575,000.00 to the National MS Society.
