About Your Picnic

Your picnic ‘basket’ is a reusable tote complete with lunch, bottled waters and cookies for two people, a plastic tablecloth, paper plates, and individually wrapped plastics utensils and napkins. The tote and its contents will fit nicely in the basket of your BCycle.

Picnic baskets can be picked up from the Museum’s Amazing Body Store between Noon and 3 pm on the day of your visit.

For lunch, you can choose:

  • Charcuterie plate for two
  • Cheese, hummus, and veggie plate for two
  • Turkey or veggie wraps

About Your Bike Ride

Your BCycle vouchers include a 30-minute ride. Suggested bike routes will be provided for you or you can choose your own route. Want a longer ride? No problem! Additional time can be added at a cost of $3 per 30 minutes on the day of your ride.

There is a BCycle station located at The Health Museum on the corner of Hermann and LaBranch. In the event that a bike is not available, there are several additional stations nearby.

In Texas, cyclists under 18 years of age are required to wear a helmet. The Health Museum recommends that all riders wear a helmet to protect their fabulous brains. Please note that BCycles are sized for adult riders and are not appropriate for young riders.
