Join us Sunday, March 16, 2014
Tour de Houston Presented by Apache Corporation, the annual fundraising bike ride, will take place Sunday, March 16, 2014. The severe drought conditions spreading throughout Texas have dramatically increased the need to protect our parks and green spaces. Funds raised from this year’s ride will benefit Houston’s reforestation efforts through our non-profit partner, Houston Parks Board, dedicated to creating, improving and protecting parkland in the greater Houston region.
While Tour de Houston Presented by Apache Corporation is a fundraising ride, it also serves as a recommended ride for the BP MS 150. We encourage BP MS 150 participants to participate in the many recommended rides offered throughout the Houston area.
If you can't participate in this year's ride but would like to donate to the Tour de Houston Fund, go to the Houston Parks Board Website, click DONATE, select your preferred payment method, and select Tour de Houston in the Donation Information / Donation For Area.

What Others Have Said about TdH
- The Tour was nice and all the volunteers and city employees and police were really helpful.
- The 2013 Tour de Houston had a beautiful route with excellent police and city of Houston staff support. Rest stops were well located and fully stocked and there were plenty of drinks to keep riders supplied with hydration. Additionally, there were more than sufficient portable toliets. The volunteers were friendly and helpful. Thanks for a good ride on a beautiful day.
- Let me say that the Tour de Houston/Apache didn't let me down, it was a great ride. BUT, I have never stopped so many times in any event ride in the 10+ years I've been doing these. Even in all the past Tour de Houston's I've ridden. The good things were the route, loved that. The rest stops, and the fun at the end. I really enjoy doing the Tour de Houston (because of the different routes each year) and I won't let the above negative stop me from next year. I've done every Tour de Houston except the one that was canceled in 2010. Again, great ride, really did enjoy it.
