NEW MARKETS - Houston!
We have a new Market in Midtown and longtime Urban Harvest Market is at new digs (get it? :)) and is growing! Join us as we navigate a new route, to a new market, for an old favorite!
Grocery stores are so overrated! You drive to them. Carry your little bags in, and push around a cart. Maybe it's your lucky day and there are even some cookie samples left over in the bin…BORING! Instead of your typical shopping routine, why don't you pedal with us this Saturday for a fun weekend ride that will leave your taste buds and souls enriched and support our wonderful Houston Farmers Markets. Who knows what new food or drink you may discover!
Did you know many of our local restaurateurs' shop at our Houston Farmers' Markets each week? There they find the best handcrafted cheeses, local produce, baked goods, and locally sourced organic meats, and you can too! Our mission is to pedal fast enough to beat them before they take all the goods in the market, but slow enough to enjoy every revolution of the ride. We're experts at finding the perfect balance! We'll meander our way down side streets, trails and residential areas you never knew existed in the heart of Houston.
First, we'll wake ourselves up with the delicious aroma of a leisurely Onion Creek coffee. After our caffeine kicks in, we'll cruise off to the markets to shop for fresh produce, sauces, jams, and delicious baked bread. This 12-15 mile ride lasts about three hours, so bring plenty of water and a backpack to carry all your goodies home!
Plan on sticking around after the ride to enjoy lunch at Onion Creek Cafe. They are a locally owned eatery with great food, atmosphere, brews and friends!
No bike? No worries! Houston has great rental options. Choose from:
B-Cycle Kiosk: Looking for the quickest rental option? B-Cycle allows you to rent via mobile app. There are many stations around town to pick up and drop off your rental. Check their map and pricing options information here: http://houston.bcycle.com.
Bike Barn: Prefer a person to person transaction and/or a faster bike? Then you should check out Bike Barn. We love their rental shop at their Bayou location: 105 Sabine St. Houston, Texas 77007 on Buffalo Bayou at Hidden Lake.
