Houston Bike Plan Draft - ALL HOUSTONIANS GET IN HERE!

The draft of the Houston Bike Plan was released yesterday. Go to http://houstonbikeplan.org/ to check it out. There are maps, docs, and a nice interactive map that lets you toggle the layers of existing, planned, proposed short-term, and proposed long-term trails/paths so you can see all the connectivity that is possible in the future.

Most importantly, please please please fill out the survey found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DraftHBPFeedback (linked from the HBP site).

Share these sites with anyone else you know that is a cyclist in Houston, but isn't a member here.
@texbiker please can you tweet out this info to your followers if you haven't already?

We need to make sure the City hears our support.

In the survey, my biggest point was to prioritize a good solid connection from Terry Hershey Park, to Memorial Park/Buffalo Bayou. This would allow people to cycle from Katy to Downtown. I'd love it if they would just continue a path along the entire length of the Bayou, but you know those butt-hurt pretentious folks in The Villages will never go for that (eminent domain, anyone?). The more likely, and again, hopeful priority, would be to redo Briar Forest / San Felipe to have dedicated, protected, comfortable bike lanes. This would allow a path from Katy to at least the Galleria area, and from there there will be a way to get to Memorial Park / Buffalo Bayou hopefully.

Anyway, please feel free to add any other comments, but please, get your voice heard. Take the survey. Email the leaders.

I live in Cypress but work on 288 and reed. I just started cycling again and am new to the area. Is there a reasonable route that would allow me to park close to my house and cycle to work?

From Cypress to south of 610 in south Houston? No. It'd take you hours and you'd easily be run over 5 times. Or shot.
Driving it, with traffic, must take at least an hour every day?

Time to move.

Thanks for the mention.
