Bike the Bend 2011 was a complete success! With a total of 578 riders, Bike the Bend raised over $27,000 for the Literacy Council of Fort Bend County. Without the help of many volunteers, this event would not be possible. This event was a “win-win” for both the riders and the Literacy Council. Riders were able to train for the MS 150 while supporting a great cause. The Literacy Council was able to provide riders with an organized ride while raising money for their programs. Shown in the photo are riders who are anxiously waiting for their release at the starting line.
