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.
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!
