BCO Farmer’s Market Ride
& Buffalou Bayou Regatta Party!!
meet @ Onion Creek
3106 White Oak Dr
Houston, TX 77007
This month we are combing two of Bayou City Outdoors’ favorite events – Urban Harvest Farmers Market and the Buffalo Bayou Regatta! We’ll start at the awesome Heights coffee shop – Onion Creek. Then, we’ll take a combo of streets and the Buffalo Bayou Trail and saunter over to the eastside farmers market to see our friends at Urban Harvest.
The eastside market is the biggest in the city and brings together rows and rows of local produce, handcrafted cheeses, baked goods and locally sourced organic meats. Plus, there is always entertainment and freshly prepared foods to enjoy while we chill. We’ll hang out at the market for awhile and then jump back on our bikes and take the bayou trail to downtown to watch the finish of the Buffalo Bayou Reggatta – Texas’ largest canoe and kayak race!
There will be boats, bands, food and drink for purchase and awards. After we enjoy the festivities we’ll head back to the Heights via streets and the Heights bike trail – what a way to spend the day! Plan on sticking around after the ride to enjoy lunch at Onion Creek Cafe. They are a locally owned eatry and one of the first of it’s kind. Good food, good brews and good friends!
This is a very social ride (we chat a lot) and all levels of riders are welcome

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!
