Kuraray Colleagues, Family, and Friends -
Kuraray has registered a team to ride in the 170-mile Bike Around the Bay cycling tour to be held around Galveston Bay on October 15-16,2016. We welcome your participation by riding with our team or by supporting Kuraray’s team through a donation.
This unique cycling event takes riders in a complete loop around the largest estuary in Texas and one of the biggest in North America! Bike Around the Bay directly benefits the Galveston Bay Foundation - a nonprofit organization that works to protect and preserve Galveston Bay through a variety of conservation, education, advocacy, and research projects.
The Kuraray Team has been part of Bike Around the Bay for 3 years now and wants to grow! You should have a reliable lightweight road bike and be capable of riding 40 to 60 miles at an average pace of 15 mph before committing to ride Bike Around the Bay.
