Which road bike can you buy?
The number of people cycling in Houston’s congested Bimini Road is up over 10 percent since 2016, but there are plenty of bike lanes to choose from.
A cyclist rides past a sign that says “Bimini Rd Bike Lane” on Friday, March 11, 2021, in Houston.
The city is adding bike lanes on the streets, but the problem is many residents don’t have the cash to pay for them, making the city’s roads worse.
We’ve asked people in our data to tell us which bike lanes they ride on and we’re finding that many people don’t even know they have a lane or how many bike lanes there are.
We’re hoping to get some people on the phones to tell their story.
We’re hoping that can give us some kind of insight into what the public wants.
The number of cyclists has gone up nearly 20 percent from 2016 to 2021, but in the last two years there have been more than 3,000 bike crashes and at least 40 deaths.
The problem is that the streets are filled with cyclists, but many of them don’t bother to pay attention to the rules.
Houston officials say the city needs to make sure cyclists are paying attention to all lanes and signs to make up for the road conditions.
The bike lanes are designed to allow people to travel faster and without slowing down.
They also provide extra space for pedestrians and cyclists.
