The COVID-19 global pandemic has impacted almost every aspect of daily life in Houston and across the globe. While we encourage people to just stay home and avoid unnecessary trips, folks are bound to want to get outside every now and then.
Unfortunately, major parks are filling up with people wanting to enjoy the spring weather, and crowding is making it difficult to maintain the recommended 6 feet distance from others.
It is a great time to think about how we can travel more sustainably each day. So, go ahead and take the lane. Bikes may use full city.
