If you've thought about hopping on your bike to get a little exercise in the cooler weather and save some energy, here's a good opportunity.
Former Dynamo forward and current managing director for the Houston Dash, Brian Ching, will serve as the "Bike to the Game" ambassador and lead participants in a 3.7-mile pre-game ride through the East End of downtown. The event will start at 4:30 pm outside of Lucky's Pub at 801 St Emanuel Street. Following the ride, participants can relax in the Budweiser beer garden and enjoy pre-game festivities at Orange Avenue and Soccer Fest.
Even though bike parking will be provided at BBVA Compass Stadium, participants must bring their own locks. Additionally, bike helmets will be permitted inside the stadium.
A $30 "Bike to the Game" ticket package includes one ticket to the game, participation in the guided ride, access to the Budweiser beer garden and two complimentary drinks. Since space is limited for the organized ride, spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, buy your tickets in advance.
