Come down to Navigation (from Jensen to Lockwood) to enjoy this popular event. It's fun, it's healthy and a great way to meet fellow Houstonians and enjoy the streets of Houston.


As all triathletes know, proper aero positioning can make the difference between winning a race and coming up just short. Join us for this month's fit clinic and learn how to achieve the ideal aero position while understanding the importance of aerodynamics. This clinic is open to all levels of athletes, including both season veterans and those who are interested in their first triathlon. This is a free clinic but please let us know if you are coming.


A little bit of rain and the cancellation of Day 1 of the 2015 BP MS 150 couldn't stop our riders from pulling into Austin on Day 2 of the ride. We had a fantastic time and made the most of the finish in Austin. With a record number of Team Bike Barn members this year, it was sure to be a great time. Check out a few of our photos from Austin and the start in La Grange...we also invite you to join our team for next year to see what it's all about!

Come out and have some fun with BikeHouston! BikeHouston has a number of fun events coming up, ranging from Traffic Skills 101 class, to Mid Main First Thursday, CycloFemme, and a Dinner + Bikes movie showing event.
