Farmer’s Market Bike Ride

Onion Creek

3106 White Oak Dr

Houston, TX 77007

 

Life in H-town is constantly evolving, in a large part thanks to our local Farmers Markets.  Did you know many of our local restaurateurs shop at the Farmers Markets each week for handcrafted cheeses, local produce, baked goods and locally sourced organic meats?  Our job is to pedal fast enough to beat them to the market but slow enough to enjoy the ride :)).  No problem for us!  We’ll use the side streets, trails, and residential areas in the heart of Houston to meander our way around.

 

 

This is a very social ride (we chat a lot) and all levels of riders are welcome. We will start the morning off with a leisurely coffee at Onion Creek and then cruise through 2-3 markets to shop for fresh produce, sauces, jams, and bread. This is a 12-15 mile ride that lasts about three hours so bring plenty of water and a backpack to carry your goodies!

  

Plan on sticking around after the ride to enjoy lunch at Onion Creek Cafe.  They are a locally owned eatery and one of the first of it’s kind.  Good food, good brews and good friends!

 No bike? No worries!  You can pick up a bike from the B-Cycle kiosk around town:  http://houston.bcycle.com/home.aspx

Or go to one of your local bikes shops like:  West End Bicycles @ www.westendbikes.com, Bike Barn -@http://bikebarn.com/, Planetary Cycles @ http://planetarycycles.com/, or Houston Cycling Centres @ http://northwestcyclery.com/.

 

 
 

If you are a member of Bayou City Outdoors and do not have a bike, we can loan you a bike for the ride. But you MUST call the office 1 to 2 weeks in advance to arrange for the loaner bike.

 
Meet at Onion Creek, 3106 White Oak Dr, Houston, TX 77007. Please DO NOT Park in the Onion Creek lot – there is parking on the surrounding streets but look out for ‘no parking’ signs. Meet at 8:00AM – leave at 8:30AM to Noon.  Free for members and non-members alike.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Typically most BCO events are for adults.  But, we do love kids.  If you believe your child is capable of keeping up with the group, no problem.  AND if this is a bike ride they MUST wear a helmet.  Questions?  Contact us at info@bayoucityoutdoors.com 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

We add parking details to the Event descriptions.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

If the temperature is above 80 or it very clearly says "No Dogs" then please don't bring your dog.  We LOVE dogs and only make this rule if we feel there could be a safety concern (for the dogs of course:).

BIKE: If it is a bike ride: Bring a helmet or borrow one from us.  Helmets are the single most important piece of gear you can have on a bike ride.  Anyway, any time you are wearing a helmet you must be having fun!  

Bring water.  Frequently our events are in the woods or out of the way.  Water is important.

HIKE: If it is a hiking event wear comfortable shoes.  Athletic shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, just be sure your feet will be happy.

SOCIAL: If it is a social event?  Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in.  We are an eclectic mix of people with all types of interests and jobs.  People will come straight from work in a suit or jeans, straight from running or working out, and some of us even come cleaned up straight from the shower!  (and everything in between)
