or at Marmion Park in the Historic Heights on Rally Day

Sunday, October 7, 2012

Registration is open for the Houston Heights Association’s 7th Bicycle Rally & Scavenger Hunt, to be held on Sunday, October 7, 2012. THIS IS NOT A RACE. Open to riders of all ages and designed as a casual self-paced ride, participants bicycle a course through the Houston Heights and surrounding areas. Riders can choose between the classic 20-mile ride and scavenger hunt, or a shorter 5-mile ride and scavenger hunt for families—OR DO BOTH—starting and finishing at Marmion Park.

Each rider receives a rally map, rally card and scavenger hunt clue list. There will be one combination check point / water station mid-way on the course. The rally card must be validated by a rally volunteer at this check point in order for the participant to be eligible for prizes. Prizes are awarded to the riders who correctly identify the most mystery sights along the route.

After completing your ride, celebrate by joining us in Marmion Park for the Post Ride Party starting at 3:30 p.m. and Awards Ceremony at 4:30 p.m., with entertainment, fabulous door prizes, and great refreshments, including picnic fare, beverages and more!
The first 300 registrants receive a commemorative logo water bottle. Riders of the classic 20-mile route may start as early as 8:00 a.m. The 5-mile Family Ride begins at 2:00 p.m. All riders must finish by 4:00 p.m. to be eligible for awards and prizes, and must be present to win. All Kids riding the 5-mile course receive an award.
Packet pick-up will be at Marmion Park, 18th Street and Heights Boulevard, on ride day beginning at 8:00 a.m. (complete details on website and registration form).
