The 2011 Bike Around the Bay ride, which is now more eco-friendly, is scheduled for Oct. 8-9.

The event, which benefits the Galveston Bay Foundation, is a fully supported two-day, 150-mile bicycle ride around Galveston Bay. The scenic ride showcases the natural beauty of Galveston Bay.

The ride starts in Anahuac at Fort Anahuac Park and continues along the gorgeous route that includes many fascinating sights and highlights. Riders will spend the night in Galveston, where they will enjoy an informal dinner with other cyclists, friends and family. Day 2 will bring the riders north along the west side of Galveston Bay and ultimately to the finish line outside of Baytown.
