BikeHouston is building a pop-up bike lane!
On Sunday, November 5, The City of Houston will be hosting Cigna Sunday Streets on Bellaire Boulevard in the Gulfton neighborhood from 12pm-4pm. Bellaire will be closed to vehicular traffic from Hillcroft to Chimney Rock to allow community members to bike, walk, and play on a major thoroughfare.
This time, BikeHouston will be installing a pop-up bike lane to catalyze the implementation of safe bicycle infrastructure and give one of Houston’s most densely populated neighborhoods a chance to learn from and experiment with the design.
We’re very excited about our bike lane, in fact, we’re also planning to have a SILENT DISCO to accentuate the boogie-factor of our presence.
We’ve got a lot going for us for this next Sunday Streets event, and we’re going to need a lot of help to get a 300-foot bike lane (or cycle track) done. We need at least 10 volunteers to help out with set up (painting, laying down tape, setting up signs etc.), counters to count how many people chose to use the bike lane, and bilingual advocates to spread the word about the BikeHouston mission.
Our hope is that community members will be inspired to advocate for short-term bike projects in their neighborhoods and even implement pop-up bike lanes of their own! Remember, the city works for you. You own the roads and dictate the way they are built. Let’s build them together.
