We’ll pick up our bikes at one of the many convenient BCycle stations. Then we’ll pedal down the Heights Hike and Bike trail along the beautiful White Oak Bayou and stop for an ideal photo of the Houston skyline. As we go through the Heights I’ll tell you stories about some of the local characters and we’ll stop in front of four historic Victorian buildings. Then onwards to the bustling shopping area of 19th street where we can pop into a few of the locally-owned businesses. Finally, we'll move back toward the bike station, but not before rewarding ourselves with a treat from one of our favorite local shops such as a gelato from my favorite gelateria or a juice from a boutique juice shop! This Experience is specifically tailored for early in the day because it is so brutally hot outside, but we're game to host at a different time if you are, just ask! We also have other hosts that specialize in many other cultural aspects of Houston, so don't be afraid to reach out on any topic :)
George, Paige And Simon
Hi, I'm George! I am a dual-citizen of France and Greece but have lived in Houston with my Texan wife for the last seven years. I operated THE top-rated tour company on TripAdvisor in Athens for over a decade. I love being on wheels: I have participated in the Paris-Dakar motorbike rally twice, was a motorcycle courier in Paris, and have bicycled thousands of miles in dozens of countries across the world. As an experienced cyclist and former tour guide, I am phenomenally well-suited for a bike-based dive into history, food, and shopping just like this one!
As an experienced cyclist that has ridden these routes dozens of times, I've carefully selected some of the best spots: photo opportunities, historical buildings, and shopping venues that have items that you just need to see!
最多可有6位年满15周岁的参与者参加。 Guests should already be able to ride a bike and brake effectively.
Comfortable clothes and shoes! Does not have to be sports clothes per se as we will not be racing or anything like that, but high heels are definitely not recommended!
We will cycle a few miles (4-5) over the course of several hours. Our pace will be quite leisurely with a number of stops for photos, shopping, and cool snacks.
