2017 Bike Around the Bay

Bike Around the Bay

October 12 - October 13 2019
Baytown, Texas, USA

Bike Around the Bay is a fully supported two-day, 170-mile bicycle ride around Galveston Bay that showcases the natural beauty of the Bay. Tour the scenic and picturesque countryside of the Texas upper coast roadways while visiting the bay area towns of Baytown, Anahuac, Galveston, Texas City, Bacliff, Kemah, Seabrook, and La Porte. Be part of the fascinating environment of the many bay coves and inlets while cycling with your friends and family on a 2-day tour of Texas' coastal assets. The overnight stay in Galveston, Texas at Moody Gardens will be the high point of the first day's journey and promises to relax and re-energize the rider for the second day's excursion. On Day 2, the riders leave the island to return to the mainland via the Galveston Bay Causeway and will continue to explore the coastal region - cycling through Texas City, Kemah, Seabrook, and La Porte before concluding at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown where it all started.
