The Safe Way To Ride a Bicycle Through Houston

Bike Rack on Bus in San Jose

We all know riding bikes on trafficked Houston thoroughfares is dangerous. Finally, though, someone’s doing something about it.

No, not putting in bike lanes—that would be absurd. A notice on the Metro website reads:

METRO will soon equip its local fleet with bike racks to help you navigate congested streets on your way to bike trails, work, school or other destinations.

Join us as we kick off this new chapter in METRO transit history. [emphasis added]

Let’s hope this attempt to take bikes off the streets is effective.
