Event Description

Houston Outdoors LIVE presents:

Biking 101



Houston Outdoor LIVE - join us in person.  Or, check the LIVE event out online at our Facebook Live presentation.  Both events run simultaneously and you can join the Q&A online or in person.  


Each week we take a topic, drill down as quick & deep as we can, to get you up to speed and out playing.  We’ll take Q&A after the presentation to help guide everyone into outdoor summer fun mastery. 



May 10 – BIKING

 Houston is where it’s at when you're ready to spin the pedals.   Cruise, commute, mountain bike or road bike, we'll show you where to go and how to get started. Who needs to drive when they can ride?

From the ABC’s of bike maintenance to choosing a bike or where to ride, we’ll have you riding the streets (or the trails) on your bicycle with ease and confidence.


Topics we cover:

- Bike bag essentials

- What to wear (it doesn’t have to be spandex)

- Transporting your bike & not losing it on I-10

- Airing tires and preventing flats

- Bike safety and why it’s important

- Bike handling tips

- Basic quick maintenance 

- Where to bike & the best trails

- B-Cycle, Bike Barn rentals

- Buying a used bike

- Finding your dream bike

You'll also be able to download the free #10Essentials for Biking that evening - we promise to get you rolling in style! 

Everything you need to know, buy, skip and learn in a single Tip Sheet.  

(Fun Tip:  Bring your bike or grab a rental for a fun, easy ride on the Buffalo Bayou Paths after the presentation. We'll even drop in on the BCycle Luau)


Ready to roll?
