Houston has some great bike shops- Blue Line Bike Lab, West End Bikes, Urban Bike Gallery, Daniel Boone Bikes- to name a few, but out in the burbs of Katy we are stuck with chain store Sun & Ski, assholes at Bike Barn, and tiny Bicycle World Express. But starting with a soft launch this Wednesday November 18th Bicycle World is opening a new full service bike shop on the I-10 Freeway in the strip mall next to Main Event & Guitar Center. If they keep the customer service of their small express store then Katy will finally have a top flight local bike shop.

With tomorrow's election you have the option to consider cycling into your decision. Bike Houston has sent a candidate questionnaire to mayoral and city council candidates. You can review there responses here. One candidate who has bicycling as a central aspect of their lives is Tom McCasland running for the City Council At Large #1. McCasland has commuted in Houston exclusively by bike and public transit, he wrote the grant to turn utility easements into shared use paths, and was critical in the three foot safe passing law getting passed in Houston. So go read up on the candidates at Bike Houston's web site and don't forget to vote tomorrow.
