Thank You to the 1097 Riders Who Joined Us for Bike Around the Bay 2013!

And that's a wrap! The seventh annual Bike Around the Bay Sponsored by Shell took place October 12-13, 2013 with more than 1000 registered riders for the first time in the ride's history. The two day ride started out a bit soggy at Barbers Hill ISD in Mont Belvieu, but the weather cooperated for the rest of the ride as cyclists made their way around the bay on their 180-mile journey. The proceeds of the ride benefit projects that preserve wetlands, protect natural habitat, and enhance the water quality of the bay. The Galveston Bay Foundation would like to thank all the riders, volunteers and sponsors who made this the most successful Bike Around the Bay yet! Bike Around the Bay 2014 is scheduled for October 18-19, 2014.

Rider Quotes

"Where do I start, it was all wonderful. In particular, the scenery, logistics, volunteer support, and police support were outstanding."

"The whole ride was great, my husband and I are so sad that it's over! We cannot wait to do it again."

"...we had an OUTSTANDING time during the Bike Around the Bay ride last weekend. You, the GBF, your volunteers, your sponsors, the police and all other contributors made it one of the safest and most enjoyable rides we’ve ever attended. The thoroughness, friendliness, enthusiasm, and spirit that everyone exhibited was catching and you definitely achieved your objectives- we will be back to ride again (with friends) and we now know a lot more about the areas from Anahuac to Galveston that we plan to visit during the coming year. Thank you for a fantastic time and we only wish we could thank everyone personally who help make the weekend possible."
