Where To Ride

Explore Houston And Beyond

There is no better way to get to know your community and its surroundings than to explore it by bicycle. Below you'll find some great resources on mountain bike and road trails to guide you through Houston. From our very own Tour de Bike Barn along Galveston Bay to area state parks like Brazos Bend and Lake Houston, there are trails for every level of rider. Our staff would love to help you find trails near you, so be sure to ask next time you're in.


The Greater Houston Off-Road Biking Association (GHORBA) is dedicated to establishing Houston as the best urban city for off-road cycling. We have so many trails in and around Houston to choose from - check out the GHORBA website for up-to-date information.
