October 15 & 16 – Bike Around The Bay | Bay Area ~ gallery 1

The wind was still as the sun was rising over the bay as we were heading to Fort Anahuac Park for the annual Bike Around The Bay bike ride. Teams dressed in identical jerseys milled around the parking lot as they attended to last minute bike adjustments. More than 800 individuals were ready and excited to get on the road.

The Shell team, title sponsor for the 2010 Bike Around The Bay, and Bob Stokes, the President of the Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF), took the lead positions at the start line. At exactly 8am, to the tune of I Want To Ride My Bicycle, the mass of bikers took off. We watched every brand, size, and style of bike roll by and couldn’t be a little envious of the great fun ahead. One of the highlights of the first day is the ferry ride across the bay while the second day brings the crossing of two bridges. The first crossing is the escorted ride over the Galveston Causeway, a unique experience graciously approved by the city of Galveston. And the latter part of the ride takes the riders over the Fred Hartman bridge as they make their way to the Grand Raceway Park.  

The Bike Around The Bay is a 2 day ride hosted and benefitting GBF. Listen in as Talk of the Bay visits with Emily Demmeck and Bob Stokes of GBF as they tell us the high-lights of this great ride.
