Bayou City Outdoors
Graffiti Art & Food Truck Bike Ride
Market Square Park (in front of Niko Niko's)
301 Milam Street 77002
1:00 – 4:00 pm
Have you noticed the outdoor artwork adorning the city these days? Graffiti has moved from outlaw to street art, and some of the top artists and newcomers are painting it up right here in Houston. We’ll be riding around H-town checking out some of the more prominent and promising graphics to be seen. Most of the ride today is on the streets of Houston, so DON’T forget your helmet – if you do, we will have a few to lend.
We even have a private showing scheduled at the art studio of Aerosol Warfare! We’ll wind down the day at the Leeland Street Food Truck Court – a flash mob of food trucks that changes every Sunday afternoon, beer and sodas are also available. So bring some cash, your wheels, your helmet and see art like you have never seen it before, from the seat of your bike!
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/.
Meet at Market Square Park in front of legendary Niko Niko's - grab a bite before we head out if you want! Parking: There is an abundance of on-street parking in downtown. Metered on-street parking is available Monday-Saturday and is free after 6 pm and all day Sunday. Make sure you feed the meter when applicable and always pay close attention to City signage. Never park at a red meter or if the street has red markings. Milam and Travis streets along the park are also considered mobility lanes so you cannot park there from 7-9 am or 4-6 pm.
$5 parking is available daily at Market Square Garage at 300 Milam which is conveniently located across the street from the park.
