2019 14th Annual Houston Heights Bicycle Rally & Scavenger Hunt

Saturday, October 5, 2019
Marmion Park Houston, TX
1802 Heights Blvd.
Houston, TX US 77008

The one and the only original Heights Bicycle Rally & Scavenger Hunt will be what’s happening at Marmion Park located at Heights Blvd and 18th on Saturday, October 5.

This is not a race and is open to riders of all ages. The Rally & Scavenger Hunt is designed as a casual, self-paced ride. Choose between a 15-mile course through the Heights and surrounding neighborhoods or a shorter 3-mile ride designed for children and their adult companions — or do both.

Don’t have a bike? You can borrow one at no charge from Houston Bcycle! Pick up the bike at Marmion Park the morning of the rally.

Join the new “Bikes, Bites and Beer” Kickoff Party on Friday, October 4th from 6-9 p.m. at Eureka Heights Brewery, 941 W 18th St, Houston, TX 77008.
Kick-off the 14th Annual Houston Heights Bicycle Rally and Scavenger Hunt at Eureka Heights Brewing Company. Enjoy a fun-filled evening of games, food trucks, beer, wine, cider and non-alcoholic beverages. Pick up your registration packet and earn your first stamp on your rally card!

Tickets to the “Bikes, Bites and Beer” Kickoff Party are $50 for adults, $20 for children, and can be purchased here.
