Bike Around the Bay 2017 @ Royal Purple Raceway
Oct 21 – Oct 22 all-day
Bike Around the Bay 2017 @ Royal Purple Raceway | Baytown | Texas | United States

Join the Galveston Bay Foundation for their 11th annual Bike Around the Bay, a two-day 170-mile fully supported ride around Galveston Bay. This unique cycling event takes riders in a complete loop around the largest estuary in Texas (and one of the biggest in North America)! All proceeds from this signature fundraising ride directly benefit GBF and its mission to preserve and protect the Bay.

All cyclists of all skill levels are welcome. Riders are given the option to complete the entire two-day route from Baytown to Galveston and back or one day only. Pick whichever option works for you. The route is fully supported with SAG wagons and frequent breakpoints along the route that provide drinks, snacks, bike mechanics and first aid.

New this year to Bike Around the Bay is the opportunity to participate in a 45-minute yoga and stretching session at the finish of day 1. Participants will focus on static yoga stretches to help open and increase flexibility. After riding 96.3 miles, this session will allow your body to recover and will help enhance performance for day 2 and prevent injuries. It’s free, so remember to RSVP at checkout.

Register today to ride in Bike Around the Bay 2017 on Saturday-Sunday, October 21-22, 2017. If you can’t come out and bike, please consider making a generous donation to help them reach their goal!
