A little bike history

The bike seems like a pretty simple design when you really think about it, so why did it take so long for it to become popular?

Here’s a really interesting article explaining how technology had to catch up to design before bikes could become as popular as they are today.


Utility Corridor Connections

Utility corridors are an underutilized resource for the Houston bike community but all that is changing. A new trail connects already open trails and allows for it’s users to avoid road traffic while jogging or biking. This is the first of, hopefully, many new trails along utility easements.

Friends of Tour De Brewery

Some wonderful friends of ours have opened up a brand new coffee bar/cocktail lounge right on the route to Baileson on our Museum District tour. The people in charge have been a part of some of the best coffee shops/cocktail lounges in town, such as Morningstar, Julep, and Blacksmith.

It’s totally worth checking out when they open on May 5th!

Get your own brewery!

Looks liksome changes on the horizon for the Historic Heights Tour. Town in City Brewing, which is also the home of Houston Cider Company needs to sell their ready-to-use brewery in the Heights to expand production capacity for their cider! They are selling the brewery as is, complete with tanks, taps, and everything a new brewery would need to get started.

This shouldn't affect our tours anytime soon but if it does, we'll let you know.


New Bike Lanes Coming Soon!

Looks like the Houston Build 50 Challenge is chugging right along. With the Lyons Avenue bike lane completed by Saint Arnold, the next big challenge is the Hardy and Elysian lanes. Known as “The Spine”, these lanes will be the first fully protected bike lanes in Houston! There’s a lot more to do but Houston is really upping it’s bike lane game!
