13th Annual Houston Heights Bicycle Rally & Scavenger Hunt, Sunday, October 7, 2018

Description:
The rally is open to riders of all ages and designed as a casual, self-paced ride. Entrants can choose between a 20-mile course through the Heights and near-by neighborhoods, or a shorter 5-mile ride designed for kids and their adult companions —OR DO BOTH—starting and finishing at Marmion Park, 18th Street and Heights Boulevard.

At the new Stroller and Bike Parade, strollers, tricycles, bikes with training wheels, wagons, and non-motorized scooters are welcomed. Parents and guardians are encouraged to accompany their children and be part of the parade.  Prizes will be awarded to registered participants for the best decorated "vehicle" in each of the five categories - Stroller, Tricycle, Training Wheels, Wagon and Scooter. Participation in the parade is free but registration is required. 

After completing the ride, participants can celebrate at Marmion Park for the Post Ride Party and Awards Ceremony with entertainment, fabulous door prizes, and great refreshments including picnic fare, beverages and more!
