Cycling Space City- discovering Houston's bicycle culture!
When we moved to Houston we had no idea it would be a decent bicycling town. The mixed use paths along the bayous, bike lanes from the Heights into Downtown, largest MS 150 bike ride in country, critical mass, yep not bad. Join us as we discover Space City's bicycle culture with candid bike shop reviews, discussions of bike routes, and issues effecting Houston's bike community.

Spring Creek Greenway
North of George Bush Airport in Spring is the Spring Creek Greenway. Currently the Spring Creek Greenway has about 12 miles of shared-use paths with plans to expand even further. The shared-use path along the greenway connects Dennis-Johnston Park, Pundt Park, and Jesse Jones Park. This path is just winding enough to keep a cyclist interested, and even has some small elevation changes. For someone who rides through George Bush Park all the time it is refreshing to have to pay attention to the curves in the road and shift gears occasionally. The scenery is great. And just like G Bush and other bayou trails it is great to not have to worry about cars and their texting operators.
I parked at Pundt Park and started heading East from there

Beautiful scenery, smooth well paved, fun winding path. This one is a recommended ride. Enjoy some pictures:
