Bike Around the Bay 2013 Registration is Now Open!
The event will be held Saturday, October 12 through Sunday, October 13, using the 180-mile, full-loop route around the bay as first implemented in 2012. Bike Around the Bay is a fully supported two-day, 180-mile bicycle ride around Galveston Bay that showcases its natural beauty and benefits the Galveston Bay Foundation. Now in it’s seventh year, Bike Around the Bay began with the goal of bringing people together from all over to see and experience Galveston Bay. Many people are unaware of the rich ecological diversity that is so close in proximity to Houston, and this event was designed to bring awareness of its importance.
Proceeds benefit projects that preserve wetlands, protect natural habitat, and enhance the water quality of the bay for present users and for posterity.
New for 2013
- The option of a one-day ride, which will include being transported to the start for a minimal additional cost, which can be selected during registration. Transportation will leave Moody Gardens on Saturday at 6:30pm and Sunday at 10:30am.
- GBF is also offering a new "Virtual Rider" option in 2013, allowing non-cyclists (injured riders, GBF volunteers, supporters etc.) to be part of Bike Around the Bay if they're unable to participate in ride weekend.
