BBVA Compass Tour de Houston
Houston's new mayor Annise Parker is still getting used to her duties as the city's head honcho. While we're sure some of the things on her to-do list aren't entertaining (such as increasing city services while lowering costs), she's sure to find today's BBVA Compass Tour de Houston a lot of fun. Along with state Senator Rodney Ellis, Parker will lead the ride, which starts and ends at City Hall. The three distance options - 70-mile, 40-mile and 8-mile - have staggered start times, so the expected 5,000 riders will have plenty of room to maneuver around. The fun isn't over at the finish line, though. The day's festivities include a post-race party. 7 a.m. to noon. 901 Bagby. For information, call 832-393-0868 or visit www.bbvacompasstourdehouston.com. Free to $35.
