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
