As I'm just visiting Houston, my first impression was that life here revolves around the highways. Tonight I saw something totally different. As soon as I arrived at the bike place I liked the group, which is very important. But when you go biking on a Saturday evening you know the people will be cool, right? Then our guide, John, took us on a very laid back ride through the heights neighborhood, through old houses and big oak trees, which, although just 5 minutes away from the highway, seemed like a totally different place. We stopped at a few cool bars, ordered local beers and sit in the garden making friends with the others in the group. Everybody enjoyed it. I will definitely go back for the downtown tour too.
