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.
