Join Mayor Parker for Bike to Work Day
The City of Houston is celebrating National Bike Month in May with a celebratory 4.5 mile loop bike ride on Friday, May 15, 2015. The event begins at City Hall, 901 Bagby at 7:30 a.m. and ends at City Hall at 8:00 a.m. It is followed by a free breakfast, music, prizes and a few words from Mayor Parker and an introduction to the upcoming Houston Bike Plan kickoff.
