Best Bike Shop: Bike Barn
Oh Bike Barn. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways: bikes, apparel, gear, electric bikes, the fact that you're Houston owned and operated, the rides you organize to places near and far, your custom bike fit studio, and how you'll store gifts until the big day so that those who still believe in Santa Claus won't get thrown off the scent.
But more than that, you've got our back, Bike Barn. From back-of-house clinics to make sure all staffers are well-trained (and gorged on pizza), to the public and virtual clinics you give on ride safety checks, maintenance, visibility or knocking out knee pain, we just feel safer with you around. Plus, we're digging how much money your team has raised to help cure multiple sclerosis through the annual BP MS 150. For those not in the know, Bike Barn's subsidiary, Buffalo Bayou Rentals, has been a big part of getting us out of the car and exploring the beautiful bike trails along the bayou, either through its fleet rentals or bike tours.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
