ABOUT THE WEATHER: Bike Around the Bay is a rain or shine event. We've proceeded with rain in the past and will plan to do so again this year if it rains, unless we have lightning or other conditions that make riding unsafe. We will monitor the weather as we head into the weekend and let you know if anything changes. We'll keep our fingers crossed that any rain this weekend is light!

Join us for the 11th annual Bike Around the Bay, a two-day 170-mile fully supported ride around Galveston Bay. This unique cycling event takes riders in a complete loop around the largest estuary in Texas (and one of the biggest in North America)! All proceeds from this signature fundraising ride directly benefit the Galveston Bay Foundation and its mission to preserve and protect the Bay.

FUNDRAISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Bike Around the Bay is still scheduled for October 21-22, 2017, but we realize this is no ordinary year. We recognize that many of you and your families, friends and neighbors have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. While the success of the ride is very important to our continued efforts to advocate for Galveston Bay, we also 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, we will dedicate 50% of the money raised above your fundraising minimum to local flood recovery efforts.

If you are a two-day rider, that means 50% of the funds you raise above $250 will be donated, and for one-day riders, we will donate half of the funds you raise above $175. Last year, riders raised over $100,000 above the fundraising minimum. If we can reach that level again this year, Bike Around the Bay will be able to invest $50,000 in flood recovery for our community. We hope to do even more this year.
