Park to Port Bike Ride
want to stress to bike riders of all levels: It’s a ride, not a race. A totally kick-back, carefree, un-judgy, spandex-not-required, carbon-fiber-bicycle-parts-optional, fixie-or-30-speed-or-anything-in-between, super-no-worries ride. The Hermann Park Conservancy, together with the Port of Houston Authority, presents the pressure-free 20-mile trip that takes pedalers in an eastward direction from Hermann Park’s Bill Coats Bridge to Brays Bayou along the Bayou Greenway trail and then down over to the Port of Houston. Before heading back to the Museum District, leisure seekers can score snacks, music and more fun at a “turn-around” party at Brady’s Landing. Here’s the kicker: Registration was limited to 1,000 riders and is already sold out, so best start planning now for next year’s shindig.
8 a.m. Saturday. Hermann Park, 6201 Hermann Park. For information, call 713-524-5876 or visit hermannpark.org
The 3rd annual Park to Port Bike Ride will be held on Saturday, October 15. The 20-mile ride will start in Hermann Park and travel east along Brays Bayou to the Port of Houston, where there will be a turn-around party, sponsored by the Port of Houston Authority, with snacks, music and activities at Brady’s Landing. Riders will then return along the same path, heading west, to Hermann Park for a post-ride celebration where there will be music, food, partnerships with local organizations, and more.
