Awareness | Empowerment | Mobility


Ride with Refugees starts and stops at the BakerRipley Gulfton Sharpstown Campus. We invite non-riders to enjoy the playground and kid-friendly Activity Fair sponsored by refugee-focused non-profits. H-E-B will provide refreshments for all!


Our ride is 7 miles long and will include a halfway rest stop for water. For our safety, the Houston Police Department will provide bike escort and RwR will provide ride marshalls. All riders must already know how to ride a bike.

The mission of Ride with Refugees is to raise awareness about resettlement and empower refugees through mobility.
