BCO Market Bike Ride

 

 

      We have several Farmer's Markets right here in the middle of the city, which bring in local organic fruit, produce, & food products every Saturday. Bring your backpack to carry what you purchase, and let's shop the markets on our bikes!  
           

We meet and then take an easy tour of 3 to 5 markets around the city. We use side streets, trails and residential roads for this 8 to 12 mile ride.

 

You'll find cheese, bread, jams, fresh fruits and veggies, and it's ALL Local! You'll be supporting our great city and having a great time, too!

 

       
           
      Not only will you learn the markets and get some exercise, you’ll see beautiful areas you never knew existed in Houston and take home a beautiful bounty of beautiful produce, breads, sauces and jams!
