Our 6th annual event was a great success--perfect weather, perfect day, with nearly 1,000 participants. Thanks to all for your kind support towards the Fulshear community, and we'll see you next year on May 2nd back in the vineyard!
Join us at the Union Chappel Vineyards/Bar O Ranch on Saturday, May 2nd when Fulshear will hold its 7th annual Michael T. McCann Memorial Bike Ride throughout our great community. This BP MS 150 Recommended Ride will feature a 68, 35 and 19 mile route, beginning at 7:30am. All proceeds of this family event will directly benefit the Fulshear community, as he so cherished.
Dr. Mike McCann passed away after a long, heroic battle with cancer in 2007. He will be remembered as a family man, veterinarian, sailor, grape grower, friend and mentor, who also served as chairman of the Fulshear Planning Commission for many years, dedicating much of his time to the development and growth of the city. An avid bicyclist, he spent many hours each week cycling all while undergoing treatments, a true testament to his strength and abilities. He was an ambassador and statesman who epitomized what Fulshear means to many. A friendly town in a beautiful region, that if we all work together, will grow into a prosperous community that cherishes the simple, good things in life.
Bike for Mike is proud to support Fulshear, with all proceeds directly benefiting special projects and beautification of the city. Previous projects include upgrading our historic cemeteries with wrought iron fencing and adding new trees, bikes for children at Fulshear events, landscaping and stone work to our "Welcome to Fulshear" signs, and ongoing support of our public library, Arts Fulshear, the Fulshear Simonton Volunteer Fire Department, Faith FULL-Kids at Huggins Elementary, the Beauti-Fulshear Clean-up Event, the Brookwood Community, our local Boy and Girl Scout troops, and the new Ft. Bend Children's Discovery Center.
We look forward to seeing you on May 2nd, 2014 in the vineyard, along the course, and the post-ride celebration!
