Going to the bayou was a popular pastime for early residents of Houston; entertainment that, for years since the founding of the Heights community in the 1890s, was simply a part of living next to the woods and bayou close to downtown. Following in the footsteps of these Houstonians, local history buff Andrew Woodcock is leading a two-hour/two-mile bike tour of this historic area from the interior of Houston Heights to the White Oak Bayou confluence with Buffalo Bayou in Downtown Houston.

The tour will leave from Donovan Park on Heights Blvd. Participants should provide their own bikes or plan to rent one from a nearby B-Cycle station (Spotts Park and Bobcat Teddys stations are closest): https://houston.bcycle.com/station-map
