BikeHouston’s The Bayou Ride @ Niko Niko's
Dec 3 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am

BikeHouston

BikeHouston Advisory Board Member Michael Skelly leads a slower, educational ride on the first Sunday of every month departing from Market Square (by NikoNiko’s) at 8 am (unless otherwise stated). This is a no drop ride designed to show riders where they can ride on Houston’s Bayous. It is usually 60 percent on paved surfaces.

Pace and Duration

Moderate, with stops to discuss how Houston is evolving and what is coming, for 2-3 hours.

Recommendations

Fatter tires are highly recommended, but some folks can tough it out on road bikes.

As always:

Remember to bring a helmet, water, and spare tubes.

To register, visit The Bayou Ride’s event page.

More Harvey-like severe weather events, more devastating storm surge, more energy use dependent on fossil fuels, wider spread tropical disease, or more heat index days and ozone? If you are interested in learning about climate change and identifying ways Houstonians can make a difference, then join the Houston Sierra Club reading group dedicated to climate change. The reading group will meet every month to discuss an article, book excerpt, or podcast related to climate change, with special focus on Houston.

10/5 Climate Change Overview
11/2 Climate Change in Texas
12/7 Solutions, Houston Style
1/4 Imagining the Future

The group will be limited to 15 people, and attendees will receive a confirmation and link to online assignments before the end of September. Be a part of this informative reading group by RSVPing online.

Vegan Society of P.E.A.C.E. Monthly Meeting @ Houston Community College Conference Center
Dec 9 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join Vegan Society of P.E.A.C.E. for our “Vegan 2nd Saturdays” Monthly Meetings, Presentations & Vegan Potlucks

Held on the “2nd Saturdays” of each month, we will enjoy a delicious vegan potluck and meeting, along with a discussion, film screening, food demo or speaker presentation on intersectional issues of veganism, animal rights, environmentalism, nonviolence, health and more. Each month will be something new! Our new venue is at the HCC Conference Center.

We are asking for a donation of $5 per person to help cover our facility rental expenses. All attendees must bring a vegan entree to share at the potluck (serving size to feed 10 people)!

There will be VSOP logo items available as part of our fundraising efforts. We always have plenty of FREE vegan literature, animal rights & environmental awareness literature, and starter guides for the vegan-curious, too!

Please remember to bring a vegan dish to share with the group! Our events are always vegan, so please only vegan or raw vegan foods (no animal-derived ingredients). If you have questions on ingredients, feel free to contact us.

We have plenty of seating at our new venue. All ages welcome! (Families are invited to bring toys and games for their young ones. Children must not be left unattended.)

Help us also keep our events earth-friendly by bringing your own reusable dinnerware and plates.

This is a great way to meet up with Vegan Society of P.E.A.C.E. each month and learn about our volunteer opportunities, upcoming events and outreach! Houston’s Premier vegan nonprofit was founded in 2004 and is run entirely by volunteers!

We will also feature a new discussion topic on intersectional issues each month, such as: animal rights, ethical vegan living, vegan health & nutrition, cooking, world hunger solutions, eco-friendly living, nonviolence and more! Some months will also include film screenings and/or guest speakers and food demos.

Houston Community College Conference Center is located at 3100 Main St, 3rd Floor, Houston, TX 77002. See below for map. Free Parking is available on level 7 & 8 of the HCC Administration parking garage at Main & Elgin. Use elevator from parking garage to 3rd floor breezeway, which leads to the Conference suites. You must enter the building through the parking garage and not street-level.

All attendees must sign in at the Security Desk.
