Grease the gears, it’s a bike rider’s paradise with back-to-back cycling events. Saturday’s Bayou City Classic features 5K and 10K tracks looping through downtown and along Allen Parkway. For the more athletically inclined, Sunday’s Tour de Houston congregates roughly 5,000 participants for their choice of the 20-, 43.55- or 61.45-mile routes that dip down into parts of Missouri City. Both events culminate with a post-race party, and proceeds from the rides benefit the Houston Parks Department and Houston’s reforestation efforts. Obie O’Brien, vice-president of governmental affairs for presenting sponsor Apache Corporation, endorses the events. “It’s really a chance to get out, get some exercise and see parts of town you’ve always wanted to get to.”

Bayou City Classic: 7:50, 8 and 8:10 a.m. March 18. City Hall, 901 Bagby. For information, visit bayoucityclassic.org. $35 to $40. Tour de Houston: 7:30, 8 and 8:30 a.m. Sunday. City Hall, 901 Bagby. For information, visit tourdehouston.org. $20 to $40.
