BCO Farmer’s Market Bike Ride
September 16, 2017 – 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Meet at Onion Creek
3106 White Oak Dr
Houston, TX 77007
This is a very social ride (we chat a lot), and all levels of riders are welcome.
Life in H-town is constantly evolving, in large part thanks to our local Farmers' Markets. Did you know many of our local restaurateurs shop at the Farmers' Markets each week for handcrafted cheeses, local produce, baked goods and locally sourced organic meats? Our job is to pedal fast enough to beat them to the market but slow enough to enjoy the ride :)). No problem for us! We’ll use the side streets, trails, and residential areas in the heart of Houston to meander our way around.
We will start the morning off with a leisurely coffee at Onion Creek and then cruise to the markets to shop for fresh produce, sauces, jams, and bread. This is a 12-15 mile ride that lasts about three hours so bring plenty of water and a backpack to carry your goodies!
Plan on sticking around after the ride to enjoy lunch at Onion Creek Cafe. They are a locally owned eatery, good food, good brews and good friends!
No bike? No worries!
You can pick up a bike from a B-Cycle kiosk around town. Check their map and info here: http://houston.bcycle.com If you are a member of Bayou City Outdoors and do not have a bike, we can loan you a bike for the ride. But you MUST call the office 1 to 2 weeks in advance to arrange for the loaner bike.
