FHWA Celebrates Groundbreaking for Houston Bike/Pedestrian Trails
Federal Highway Administration
HOUSTON – The Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Highway Administrator Victor Mendez today participated in the groundbreaking for the Houston Regional Bike/Pedestrian Connections to Transit project. The $29 million project, which includes funding from a $15 million TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) IV grant and $800,000 in other federal funds, will improve mobility and provide visitors to the downtown area with safer shared-use paths, sidewalks and walkways. Administrator Mendez was joined by Congressman Gene Green, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, Houston Mayor Annise Parker and other state and local officials at the event.

Bike Tour Finder

You can pick your distances each day and can even come for a few days. The site provides hotel and food options and the one part of this event the organizer stresses is that it is meant to be fun and the the group of riders are very close with many long lasting…
2013 Race Season Recap
This year was my first year to seriously pursue competitive mountain bike racing. At the start of the year, I had put a goal of finishing in the top 3 in the state series. That turned out to be a bit of a stretch given the level of competition, but it was still a great year.
In my efforts to be competitive, I bought a road bike and started riding it regularly for training purposes. The road bike made huge improvements in my fitness levels and facilitated my placings in the races this year. I’ve put over 1100 miles on the road bike this year, and while that’s not a lot by a lot of standards, that’s a fair bit for me. I’ve put in over 223 hours and 2500 total miles so far this year.
Early on I had a bit of a scare at Rocky Hill. Something off with the ticker, or so it seemed. Looks like it was just unfamiliarity with the level of intensity that I was training and…
