Medical Center and Rice University

Bike Ride

Ride Overview

We will start with the Medical Center. The entire history of the Medical Center can be seen in its buildings and street names. We will also see some interesting architecture and artwork.

Rice University offers one of the most interesting and attractive venues in Houston, both for its architectural quality and variety, and the extensive collection of secret symbols, hidden meanings and elaborate jokes decorating the buildings, many dating to the earliest days of the university. Also some interesting history, including the founder’s murder and President Kennedy speaking about the manned space program.
