Mayor Annise Parker joins 5,000 of her closest friends for today's Tour de Houston. The annual bike ride is sponsored by the Apache Corporation and features 20-, 40- or 70-mile circuits that begin and end at City Hall, with routes meandering through River Oaks, near Hobby Airport and the Air Terminal Museum. Volunteers and riders will be treated to a post-ride picnic at Hermann Park with vittles from My Fit Foods and classic pop and rock hits from the 1950s to the present day by the Slags. This year's race raises funds for reforesting efforts in Houston.
7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., City Hall, 901 Bagby. For information, call 832-393-0868 or visit www.houstontx.gov/tourdehouston. Free for spectators.
