Rolling Down the Road w/ Commissioner Ellis & Fernando Martinez

The city of Houston, TX is progressing towards a more bicycle-friendly environment in large part because of the leadership, dedication, and support of Harris County Precinct 1 Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Bike Program Director Fernando Martinez.

When thinking of Houston, TX, the phrase bicycle-friendly environment rarely comes to mind, but if these two distinguished leaders have their way, that's exactly what the future will hold.
