Team Shrader @ MS150


20 Dec, 2011

Shrader Engineering has been an active participant in the MS150 bicycle ride from Houston to Austin for many years. The rider count of Team Shrader grew from 6 people to 20+ people in a few short years and continues to grow. The ride would not be possible without our team of volunteers that coordinate and provide transportation, a tent at LaGrange, and a tent at Austin.

The MS150 event provides an opportunity to improve the lives of many suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. Each rider raises funds by finding sponsors to support their efforts. The event also provides the foundation for team building as riders conquer the two day trip together from Houston to Austin.

Throughout the year, riders from Team Shrader participate in MS150 Recommended Rides to prepare themselves for the grueling main event. These rides are held throughout the Greater Houston Area such as in Humble, Magnolia, Pearland, and Katy. The rides provide options from 20 miles to upwards of 100 miles depending on what the rider chooses to undertake.

Finishing the entire MS150 bicycle ride from Houston and Austin is a great accomplishment. One learns a lot about the rules of road bicycling, the team of people that they work with, and their own personal physical and mental limits. The hard work required to accomplish such a task is way worth it.
