BCO & HTXO Farmer’s Market Bike Ride

November 16, 2019 – 8:30 am to Noon

Meet at Onion Creek Coffee

3106 White Oak Dr.

Houston, TX 77007


 
Grocery stores are so overrated! You drive to them, carrying your little bags in and pushing around a cart and wheels don’t even function properly half of the time. Maybe it's your lucky day and there are even some cookie samples leftover in the bin…BORING!


 
Instead of your typical shopping routine, why don't you pedal with us on a Saturday morning for a fun weekend ride that will leave your taste buds and souls enriched and support our wonderful Houston Farmers Markets. Who knows what new food or drink you may discover!


 
Did you know many of our local restaurateurs' shop at our Houston Farmers Markets each week? There they find the best handcrafted cheeses, local produce, baked goods, and locally sourced organic meats, and you can too! Our mission is to pedal fast enough to beat them before they take all the goods, but slow enough to enjoy every revolution of the ride. We're experts at finding the perfect balance! We'll meander our way down side streets, trails and residential areas you never knew existed in the heart of Houston.


 
First, we'll wake ourselves up with the delicious aroma of a leisurely Onion Creek coffee. After our caffeine kicks in, we'll cruise off to the markets to shop for fresh produce, sauces, jams, and delicious baked bread. This 12-15 mile ride lasts about three hours, so bring plenty of water and a backpack to carry all your goodies home!


 
Plan on sticking around after the ride to enjoy lunch at Onion Creek Cafe. They are a locally owned eatery with great food, atmosphere, and brews!


 
No bike? No worries! Houston has great rental options. Choose from:

B-Cycle Kiosk: Looking for the quickest rental option? B-Cycle allows you to rent via mobile app. There are many stations around town to pick up and drop off your rental. Check their map and pricing options information here: http://houston.bcycle.com.


 
BCO & HTXO Member Gear: If you are a member of Bayou City Outdoors and do not have a bike, we can loan you a bike for the ride; however, you MUST call the office 1 to 2 weeks in advance to arrange for the loaner bike.

About the Park:

“Lake Houston Wilderness Park encompasses 4,786.6 acres of wooded parkland, approximately 30 minutes north of downtown Houston off of Highway 59 near the town of New Caney. It is the only park in the H.P.A.R.D. system where overnight camping is available. A vehicle bridge over Peach Creek has opened the entire park to access by automobile.  Cabins and walk-in campsites are available for rental. Activities include hiking and biking on 20 miles of hike and bike trails, kayaking on tree-lined creeks, and horseback riding on 13 miles of equestrian trails. (Bring your own bikes, watercraft, and horses). The park is a wilderness park and is heavily forested, so visitors need to be aware that wildlife in the park includes several species of snakes. Please remember that conditions on natural waterways change without warning, so keep safety in mind as you paddle the creeks.”  by Lake Houston Wilderness Park.
