Description
Blue Line Bikes is Houston's favorite old fashioned bicycle shop, and we've been doing our part to keep Houston awesome since 2005. We've worked hard to hunt down and sell unique brands that you won't find in most cookie-cutter stores, and with our selection of bikes from Jamis, Kona, Linus, Scott, and Electra we think that we've put together a winning combination of choices to suit any type of rider that you want to be. Road bikes, mountain bikes, Townies, hybrids, Dutch style bikes, BMX, mixtes, fixies, and cruisers can all be found sharing space on our sales floor, and we now have two locations to serve you.
 
Group Rides
Bike Fight: Bike Fight is fast, and sometimes it's REALLY fast. We get a lot of local racers and CAT 6 super stars out to work on their fitness and to gauge their strength on this ... moreride, so expect moving speeds to be around 24mph with some extended sprints in the mid- 30s. This group has a set route that's exactly 30 miles long. Whoever is out front is the leader on this one, and you should be prepared for your own mechanical emergencies as this is definitely not a no-drop ride.

Shop Rides
If somebody were to ask us what our favorite things in life were, we'd have to say “Riding bikes and making new friends!” With that in mind, we've put together some pretty fun group rides so that we can meet new people and pedal around the city with all of our extended bike family. Anybody is welcome to come ride with us, but it should be noted that all of our rides are built around speeds that are best suited to road bikes.

We do have a few simple rules that we ask our riders to follow to ensure that everybody makes it home safely and has a great time. It hasn't happened very often over the years, but we will ask repeat offenders to please refrain from riding with us in the future. These are our rules:

Helmets and lights are required. No exceptions.
No headphones.
Call out road hazards and don't run red lights.
Be courteous to drivers and other road users.
Be on time, as we don't wait for anyone.
Smile, have fun, and be awesome!

The Miles of Smiles: This is our most moderately paced ride, and is usually a happy and social event. Expect moving speeds in the 17-20mph range, with a total distance somewhere around ... more20 miles. This ride requires an experienced leader, so there will be times when we call it off because we don't have anybody available to lead it. Please call the Heights location on Wednesday afternoon to make sure that the ride is on for the evening.
