Houston Bikeway Program
Welcome to the City of Houston’s Bikeways Program website. The Houston Bikeways Program is your source for all things bike, so please take a look around and enjoy! If you have any recommendations on how to improve this site, please feel free to email suggestions. We’d love to hear from you.
Lamar Cycle Track – Park Connector
The Lamar Cycle Track represents Houston’s first two-way fully protected bike lane. The track provides a nearly three-quarter-mile connector from Sam Houston Park to Discovery Green, and provides a safe, well-defined path for users between the Buffalo Bayou Trails (which connect into the greater Heights and Northside Neighborhoods) and the
Colombia Tap Trail (which provides a direct connection into the historic Third Ward and Texas Southern University).
Bicycle Master Plan
The City of Houston is set to kick-off an update to the Bicycle Master Plan in 2015! The last Plan was known as the Comprehensive Bikeway Plan completed in 1993. It has resulted in the implementation of over 300 miles of the current on-street bikeway within the City of Houston over the last 20 years. The Planning & Development Department (P&D) in coordination with the Public Works & Engineering Department and Houston Parks and Recreation Department is leading this comprehensive update to address the City’s current and future bicycling needs. The Plan will develop a comprehensive policy framework that is necessary to guide the City’s bicycle-related efforts for on-street and off-street facilities that safely connects neighborhoods and destinations. Both the on-street and off-street bicycle facilities will be addressed in the Plan taking into account the recent Bayou Greenways Initiative to ensure an inter-connected bicycle system. Funding partners for the Plan also include the Houston-Galveston Area Council, BikeHouston and Houston Parks Board.
