Houston is reapplying for Bike Friendly Communities status! We are currently ranked Bronze. Help us maintain or improve our ranking by filing out this short survey from the League of American Bicyclists.
Visit our Infrastructure page to learn more about current projects and community planning efforts. Bikeway networks have been proposed for Austin Street, Acres Home, Near Northside and Third Ward.
We’re updating our Interactive Map! Some users had difficulty commenting on bikeways they wanted to prioritize. We appreciate your patience as we fix our Bikeway Survey Priority map.
