Houston Hits the Sunday Streets

1 of 59



It was a soggy start to Sunday Streets, a new health initiative by the city to get people biking/walking on streets normally reserved for cars, but that didn't keep the people away. Check out these folks dedicated to getting active, even in the rain. PHOTOS BY FRANCISCO MONTES.

We had a great time, even with the rain! Business was good, people were smiling, neighbors were out meeting each other- it was a huge success from our perspective. Hopefully the weather will be nice for the next two so that Houston can get a real taste of what a less car-dependent life feels like, if only for a few brief hours. Great job HTX Streets, Mayor Parker, Laura Spanjin, BikeHouston and everybody else involved in turning this dream into a reality. We'll see you at the next one.
