Event Description

Houston Valentine's Farmers Market Bike Ride

Love is good.  Love with really good food is even better! This is a very social Houston bike group (we chat a lot) all levels of riders and all types of sweeties are welcome.

 

If you plan on treating yourself or a loved one with a delicious home cooked meal tonight, you might as well opt for the freshest & tastiest around! 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.

 

This is a very social ride (we chat a lot) all levels of riders and all types of sweeties are welcome. We will start the morning off with a leisurely coffee at Onion Creek and then cruise to the best market in town 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!  We ride at a casual pace, and everyone is welcome.  We have 1 rule: helmets ARE required.  If you don’t have a helmet come anyway, we have plenty of loaner helmets for everyone.

 

Plan on sticking around after the ride to enjoy lunch at Onion Creek Cafe. They are a locally owned eatery and one of the first of it’s kind. Good food, good brews and good friends on this Valentine's Day.

 

No bike? No worries! You can pick up a bike from the B-Cycle kiosk around town: http://houston.bcycle.com  Or go to one of your local bikes shops like: Bike Barn -@http://bikebarn.com/, Planetary Cycles @ http://planetarycycles.com/, or Houston Cycling Centres @ http://northwestcyclery.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.
