The City of Houston is celebrating Bike Month in May by bringing back the annual Bike To Work Day downtown ride on Friday, May 20.
During National Bike Month, Houston joins cities across the nation by recognizing bicycles as a viable, safe, sustainable and healthy, transportation option and form of recreation. We invite Houstonians to join a short ride along the banks of Buffalo Bayou downtown. This will be the first in-person group ride in two years since the pandemic prompted the City to shift gears and encourage “Bike to Wherever Day” independent rides.
