Fort Bend Education Foundation Bike Ride Cancelled

We’re saddened to announce the 17th Annual Schlumberger Education Expedition Bike Ride, scheduled for April 4 to benefit the Fort Bend Education Foundation, has been canceled in the wake of coronavirus concerns. Organizers said the cancellation was regrettable but necessary to protect the health and safety of riders, volunteers and spectators. The 18th annual event will take place in spring 2021.

Despite the cancellation, the Sprint Fort Bend County Landfill is pleased to stand with this year’s underwriters to highlight the important work of the Fort Bend Education Foundation. By sponsoring the bike ride and other Fort Bend Education Foundation events, Sprint helps the foundation provide innovative and creative education throughout Fort Bend ISD. Supported programs include teacher and school grants, new teacher gifts, an endowment fund, urgent needs grants, Angels of Education Auxiliary, professional development grants and more.

The Schlumberger Education Expedition Bike Ride offers a quality ride for cyclists of all levels. Riders choose from three routes for differing distances and abilities, from 33 miles, 48 miles and 82.5 miles through the scenic countryside of Fort Bend and Brazoria counties. Rest stops are themed and staffed by students and teachers from various FBISD high schools vying for the “Best Rest Stop” award, and cyclists and spectators alike enjoy entertainment along the route.

The event is an annual leadup to the BP MS 150, considered a “recommended ride.” For more information about the Fort Bend Education Foundation, or to donate and/or volunteer, visit www.fortbendisd.com/foundation.
