Put the pedal to the proverbial metal at BikeHouston’s 44th annual Moonlight Ramble. Kick off the evening with more than 1,500 biking enthusiasts for fun, frothy beverages and food trucks. Jazz up your bike with lights and don your best costume for the contest portion of the evening. Then, take a midnight ride around Houston. Cyclists of all skill levels can participate in a few different ways: Novices will appreciate the ten-mile path, while veteran riders can challenge themselves with the 20-mile course. True to its cause, the cycling event benefits the Bayou City. “The fund-raising helps us to make Houston more bike-friendly. We want to cover 600 miles of bike lanes for Houston for the future,” says Doug Waldrep, development manager for BikeHouston. And remember, safety comes first: Requirements include bike lights, helmets and obeying all traffic laws.
