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.
Fatter tires are highly recommended, but some folks can tough it out on road bikes.
Remember to bring a helmet, water, and spare tubes.

BikeHouston wants to make sure everyone riding around at night is able to be seen.
Meet at the BikeHouston Office at 6:00 pm and we will start the ride at 6:30 pm.
The ride will consist of group/teams of two or more people in different parts of the city to handout lights to people riding without them.
The areas we will send people to are:
- 3rd Ward
- Northside/Near North
It will work to your advantage if you are familiar with these areas of town.
BikeHouston has the lights available so you do not need to bring anything but yourself (unless you have extra lights you would like to give).
The goal is to help and educate people that are out riding their bikes about how important it is to be seen when riding at night.
Bring a friend or come make a new one on this ride, and let’s have some fun!
