A Word From Our Director

JohnLong

What is BikeHouston doing today to make Houston more bike-friendly tomorrow? We’re working through the final details with the City of Houston to close the deal on the Bike Plan — aiming for approval of the plan by City Council as early as February 14th…and certainly by the Houston Bike Summit on February 27th.  Mayor Turner will speak at the Bike Summit and it is our hope that we can all celebrate with him the Plan’s passage. To build momentum behind this effort, and to counter the claims of the naysayers, we have been conducting a social media campaign on Instagram; using the hashtag #realpeopleridingbikes. We hope this shows it is not just “cyclists” who ride bikes. There are many kinds of people who ride for many different purposes.  That is what we are documenting with photos. You can help. Use your Instagram app to take a photo of you, your friends and your bikes. Tag it #realpeopleridingbikes and tag the mayor @sylvesterturner.
I mentioned the Bike Summit above. Join us at St. Arnold’s Brewery February 27th (5:00 – 8:00 pm) for the first-ever Bike Summit. Mayor Turner and HPD Chief Art Acevedo will speak. Both of these leaders are in a position to influence cycling in Houston in very real ways. Pick up your tickets on the BikeHouston web page and come out to hear what they have to say.
