Kuraray has registered a team to ride in the 170-mile Bike Around the Bay cycling tour to be held around Galveston Bay on October 21-22,2017. We welcome your participation by riding with our team or by supporting Kuraray’s team through a donation. 

We recognize that many of you and your families, friends and neighbors have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey and we know that flood recovery is very important to our community. For this reason, for all funds raised September 14, 2017 through the end of our fundraising period,  50% of the money raised above fundraising minimums will be dedicated to local flood recovery efforts.

This unique cycling event takes riders in a complete loop around the largest estuary in Texas and one of the biggest in North America!
