Houston's on a roll and so is BCO.
We want you to join us on Saturday, June 14th where we'll be holding a special summer Farmers Market Ride.
You might just ride away with a brand new cruiser*, compliments of Bayou City Outdoors and Urban Bicycle Gallery. Biking in Houston is getting better and better, and we want everyone to have the chance to enjoy the ride of their life this summer.
Here's everything you need to know to join us on the ride
and get entered in the drawing!
We will be meeting at Market Square at 8 AM Saturday morning and rolling out at about 8:30. From there, we'll head over to Urban Harvest Market on Eastside. Bring a backpack or basket to carry all the amazing goodies from tons of different vendors. You’ll find fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade bread and pasta, local goat cheese and flowers. It's a top Houston destination, and we'll hangout while everyone has coffee, a snack or two, explores the shops, and enjoys the live entertainment!
We will take a different route back downtown to Market Square, maybe even checking out the new Buffalo Bayou trail. Once back at Market Square we'll have the cruiser drawing.
How do you win you ask? First everyone needs to RSVP right HERE!

If you don't have a bike to participate in the Farmers Market Ride, please utilize Houston's awesome bike share program- Bcycle. They are all over the city and you can rent a bike for the day, or pick up an annual membership. There are a few stations near Market Square Park. https://houston.bcycle.com
Live nearby and want to get dropped off and not pay or mess with parking? Zip Cars will be providing rides with bike racks for people interested in carpooling. (Carpool locations will be posted June 3rd.)
Or, you can park downtown near Market Square - street parking is metered and there's always room in the Market Street garage.

When & Where
Bayou City Outdoors
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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)
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Can I update my registration information?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Printed ticket or download the EventBright app and bring it on your phone.
What is the refund policy?
Refunds up until 48 hours before. Or, better yet, get some goodwill by sharing your ticket with a friend. They will love you even more after all the fun they had at the BCO event!
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Yes - see love & friendship above!
