If you can manage the traffic and actually get close to downtown Houston you will find a nice group of bike and running trails called the Buffalo Bayou Trails. It’s a really pretty area and even though we were there after some flooding it still was clean and kept up really nice.
We rented this sweet tandem bike for Reece and Maya. They were pretty excited.
The ride along the bayou is nice. There are some great views of downtown and artistic sculptures found throughout the ride.
We rode the trail towards the end of April. I have heard that if you try to go outside in Houston in the summer you have a 67% chance of dying from heat exhaustion so visit the Buffalo Bayou trail at your own risk.
