Bike Around the Bay 2017

Rice University Cycling & Triathlon

Rice Cycling & Triathlon Officer Team 2017-2018

Welcome to the fundraising page of the Rice University Cycling & Triathlon Club! Please visit our website for more details on our club, and like us on Facebook to follow us both during and after the ride! Our club prides itself in bringing new young people into the sports of cycling & triathlon. One of our favorite ways to do that is to train new riders up to Bike Around the Bay, which is an incredibly fun and rewarding cycling tour. It provides a safe and friendly introduction to road cycling. We also passionately believe in environmental conservation, and love helping out the GBF with their mission to improve the bay near our home. We sincerely appreciate every donor who is making it possible for our team to do this ride!


On October 21-22, 2017, our team will be riding around Galveston Bay in the 11th annual Bike Around the Bay cycling event. We are riding to support the most productive bay in Texas that provides habitat for more than one-third of all threatened and endangered species, produces more oysters than any other body of water in the United States, and supports vital industries like agriculture, tourism, and more.

Did you know that half the population of Texas lives within the Galveston Bay watershed? You can help make a difference in preserving and protecting the Bay right in our own backyards by making a tax-deductible donation to our team's ride. Your contribution will support the Galveston Bay Foundation which works with all Bay users to preserve the beauty, tranquility, and health of Galveston Bay. Every donation, no matter the amount, helps create a better bay!
