Reaching out in support of education, R. G. Miller Engineers was a sponsor the 19th Annual ZUHNE Education Expedition Bike Ride, which took place on April 2nd.
The event is held every year to raise funds for the Fort Bend Education Foundation – a nonprofit organization that “provides opportunities to enrich and enhance the quality of education for all Fort Bend ISD students through its grants programs.”
The ride, which begins and ends in Missouri City, is conducted as a recreational event rather than a competition, offering the option of three routes ranging from 33 to 88 miles long. Along each of the routes, there are SAG wagons, motorcycle support and themed Rest Stops. The Rest Stops are staffed by students and teachers from Fort Bend ISD high schools – all vying for the “Best Rest Stop” award. The ride finishes off with a Grab and Go lunch.
Transportation Project Manager Donald Jones, P.E., was one of the RGME staff members participating in the ride. He had recently decided to take up cycling again, having been an avid cyclist in the past – even riding in the MS 150. He says he enjoyed the event.
In addition, Land/Site Development Designer Hiral Choksey and her daughter Keya participated in this year’s event. The duo enjoys cycling together, with a “goal of riding in a MS 150 very soon.”
