Third Annual Bicycle Rally and Scavenger Hunt

The Third Annual Heights Bicycle Rally and Scavenger Hunt offers a way to explore a good portion of the Bayou City on two wheels (translation: on a bike - you know, the non-car thing that sits in your garage and doesn't need gas to run). In the self-paced competition, teams navigate the bike paths of the Heights, Montrose, Morningside, Southampton, Braeswood, the Medical Center, Hermann Park, Midtown, Downtown and Norhill to find clues and win prizes. Groups are given rally cards at the starting point (Heights Fire Station) and from there must travel to different stops to collect clues. The hunt ends with a party (and probably a blister showdown). 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. 107 West 12th Street. For information, call 713-861-4002 or visit www.houstonheights.org. $10 to $20.
Sun., Oct. 5, 7:30 a.m., 2008
