Join Bayou City Outdoors for a bike ride to the Urban Harvest Farmers Market at Eastside plus an opportunity to win a brand new cruiser, compliments of Bayou City Outdoors and Urban Bicycle Gallery.
Riders will be meet at Market Square Park at 8 a.m. for the ride that departs at 8:30 a.m. to the farmers market. Bring a backpack or basket to carry your goodies home, among them fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade bread and pasta, and local goat cheese and flowers, in an ambiance that includes live music.
A different return route offers the opportunity to enjoy other sights, such as the Buffalo Bayou trail. The drawing for the cruiser will be held at Market Square.
To register for the drawing, guests are asked to RSVP online, become a fan of Bayou City Outdoors' Facebook page and comment on a favorite Houston biking path. Bonus points that grant additional raffle entries are awarded for fans that follow the organization on Twitter and Instagram, and for uploading a photo of a favorite bike path. Participants must use the hashtag #EnjoyTheRideBCO for entries to count.
Fans can enter the contest once per day through June 13. The winner will be selected through a random drawing. The winner will then be notified via email.
In addition, Bayou City Outdoors will raffle a $250 gift certificate to Urban Bicycle Gallery.
Those without a bicycle can participate thanks to the city's bike share program,B-Cycle, which has a location at Market Square Park.
