Raise money for parks and green spaces, while warming up for BP MS 150
The 2014 Tour de Houston will roll right through the heart of The Energy Corridor on Sunday, March 16, as riders raise money to help the city’s drought-stricken parks and green spaces.
Presented by Apache Corporation, Tour de Houston also serves as a perennial warm-up ride for the BP MS 150, slated to start April 12 in The Energy Corridor.
Both the 40- and 60-mile Tour de Houston routes will ride through The Energy Corridor. A 20-mile route is also available.
Funds raised from this year’s ride will benefit Houston’s reforestation efforts to battle the effects of drought that destroyed countless trees in area parks. The City of Houston is working with its non-profit partner, Houston Parks Board, to create and protect parkland.
For those who’d prefer not to ride but want to give to the cause, visit the Houston Parks Board Website and click the “Donate” button on the homepage, then select “Tour de Houston.”
As added incentive, all riders will be automatically registered for a chance to win a bike, courtesy of Sun & Ski Sports, and a pair of Southwest Airline tickets.
Advance registration for $30 per adult rider ends midnight Monday, Feb. 17. But, riders you can register onsite on the day of the ride for $40. Children 12 and under are $20 each.
