The 20-mile ride will start in Hermann Park and travel east along Brays Bayou to the Port, where there will be a turn-around celebration, sponsored by the Port of Houston Authority, with snacks, music, and activities at Brady’s Landing. Riders will then return along the same path back to Hermann Park for a post-ride celebration where there will be music, food, drinks and more!
