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!
