Farmer Market Riders,
Please check your bikes over tonight (Friday) to be sure everything is in working order (brakes, chain, tires) and air your tires! We will have a pump tomorrow to use also. Don't forget your helmet, that really is our only big rule. If you don't have one, I will have several on hand to borrow. The markets take cash and some booth take credit cards, having small bills is a plus. Try to be ready to roll by 8:30. PLEASE. don't park in the Onion Creek lot, there is parking on surrounding streets, you just might have to look for it. We will beat the crowds and some of the heat - see you there!!

Farmer’s Market Bike Ride
3106 White Oak Dr
Houston, TX 77007
Come out and stretch your legs biking to the Farmer’s Markets of Houston to shop for local organic produce! Hop on your bike and let’s take a ride through the side streets, trails, and residential areas in the heart of Houston. This is a very social ride and all levels of riders are welcome. We will start the morning off with coffee at Onion Creek and then cruise through 2-3 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!
