Family's wheels turning together to fight multiple sclerosis

Biking has always been a part of Karl Spicker's life. When he was young, it was his mode of transportation. When he got married and had a daughter old enough to be interested, it became a hobby.

Today, there's a little more at stake.

Karl has multiple sclerosis. He can't ride a bike anymore, but at this weekend's annual Bike MS event, 12 family members and friends will bike in his honor.
