Join Mayor Turner for Bike to Work Day

May is Bike Month, and Houston is celebrating with communities across the nation. Join Mayor Turner and friends on Friday, May 20, 2016 for a celebratory bike ride on National Bike to Work Day.

The event begins at 7:00 a.m. at City Hall, 901 Bagby, and ends at 8:00 a.m. at City Hall.  Festivities include a free breakfast, music, and giveaways.

The four mile ride will showcase a variety of bicycle facilities on Washington Avenue (shared lane marking), Spring Street (shared-use trail), the Heights Hike and Bike Trail (off-street trail), and Lamar Street (cycle track).

Post ride celebrations will include sponsor giveaways, food, and music. Event sponsors include BikeHouston, METRO, B-cycle, Bike Barn, Houston Dynamo, Corner Bakery, Shipley Do-nuts, the YMCA, American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure Houston and Whole Foods.

Houston is making great strides in planning for and providing new facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians, such as the Bayou Greenways Initiative, currently under construction, and the recently released draft Houston Bike Plan, which provides a vision for biking in Houston and identifies future projects to create a high-comfort, low-stress citywide bicycle network in the next 10 years.

For more information and to sign up, visit or contact Anita Hollman, with the Houston Public Works and Engineering Department, at, or 832.395.3010.
