Resident Giang Truong shares why he bikes to his office in The Woodlands

by Lorrie Parise

May is National Bike Month, and what better way to celebrate than by enjoying the more than 200 miles of hike-and-bike trails situated throughout The Woodlands. With nearly 2,200 businesses and more than 63,000 employees working in The Woodlands, commuting is just a walk or bike ride away for many residents.

Giang Truong, an ERP Specialist in the IT department at The Howard Hughes Corporation® and resident of Grogan’s Mill, does just that.

"My commute to Hughes Landing is a little over one mile and I bike in about three times a week,” said Truong. "I occasionally walk but prefer biking to work.”

Truong says the convenience and scenery make cycling to work fun. "I enjoy looking at the natural beauty of The Woodlands and seeing all the amenities as I cycle through Town Center. Biking to work is healthy and saves money.”

The IT expert says unlike some frequent cyclists, he doesn’t use a specialized bicycle for his commute.

"I don’t have a fancy bike, I have an ordinary bike,” said Truong. "The interesting thing is that I’m not alone. The bike racks at Hughes Landing are sometimes full during the day, showing that cycling to work is easy.”

On weekends, Truong says he bikes along the trails and visits some of the 140 parks in the community.  "I especially enjoy biking along The Woodlands Waterway®, Lake Woodlands and visiting parks. The Millbend Loop is convenient for me to bike around.”

Hughes Landing was built to be conducive to vehicular, pedestrian and bike traffic. It’s home to the multifamily community of One Lakes Edge, Restaurant Row, Whole Foods Market®, Pier 1 Imports®, retail, an Embassy Suites by Hilton, Class A office space, entertainment pavilion and recreational areas with Lakes Edge Boat House and Hughes Landing Dog Park.

In honor of National Bike Month, it’s time for all of us to get out the bikes and visit the extraordinary amenities The Woodlands has to offer. Read more about them here.
