Usually, I try to not blog from work, but this really just left me unimpressed with the Houston Marathon. Read from the bottom. Total brush off.
Thank you for your email. Please contact the George R. Brown Convention Center or possible the Hilton Americas Hotel downtown to inquire about bike racks. We do not personal have any bike racks available outside the area.

Subject: Bicycle Parking at GRB on Marathon Day?
I haven’t seen any designated bicycle parking areas on the maps of the GRB set up for marathon day. In an effort to be environmentally friendly, I
was going to ride my bike to the marathon and ride home afterwards.
Can you tell me if there are any bike racks around the GRB? I would hate to be scrambling to find a place to leave my bike before the start of the
race (I’ll need to be in the Port-o-Let line!).
