new bike paths around town

Recommended Posts

As the bike plan gets adopted and starts gaining steam, it will be good to have a place where we can note what streets have legitimate bike paths (some sort of buffer between car paths and bicycle paths). Even without the bike plan in effect, there are new bike paths being added all the time.

 

 

There's an extension of the Columbia Tap Trail on Walker from Dowling to Hutchins. Both directions of cycling are on the same side of the road.

 

On Calhoun from OST to Brayes bayou there's a lane on each side of the road for cyclists.

There's a pretty legit bike path down Holly Hall from 288 to NRG.  It's separated from the road by about 6 feet of grass

It certainly will be helpful to know the routes available as not wanting to get caught in normal traffic is a major reason for not taking the bike out more often.

I can't seem to find the downtown bike path thread. Looks like they are finally connection to the Buffalo Bayou park:

This is the west end of Lamar St downtown. the dedicated street bike lane used to end at Bagby and there was a small section where it doesn't connect to the larger path that takes you to the bayou, they closed that gap.

Ahh ok I figured it might be Lamar. That's awesome the city made a solid connection like this. Really like the direction Houston is going.

Looks like they are making process on connecting the bayou trail to heights bike trail at UH downtown. Retaining walls are in under the bridge.

This is great news!  Now we need a few more bike lanes downtown!  The lane on Lamar is routinely used.  Build it and they will come.
