Bicycle shop to open in Waterway Square district

The Woodlands Development Company announced March 22 Cycle TX, a full-line cycling shop, will be developed in the Waterway Square District at 1501 Lake Robbins Drive in the building that includes the Waterway Square parking lot.

Cycle TX will sell bicycles for riders of all ages, from children to high-end bikes for elite athletes. Cycle TX plans to carry brand names such as Giant, BMC, Nirve, Niner, Look, Colnago, Pinarello, Surley and a variety of electric bikes.

" We are pleased that Cycles TX is coming to The Woodlands," said Alex Sutton, co-president of the Development Company. "Cycles TX is a perfect partnership for our community."

According to the Development Company, The Woodlands is home to nearly 200 miles of hike and bike trails. In 2011, The Woodlands Township was awarded the Bronze level designation as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists.

In addition to its line of bicycles, Cycle TX will also carry sportswear and footwear, biking accessories and equipment.

Owner and Chief Executive Officer Baltazar Vilchis and Chief Operating Officer Bernardo Davids are residents of The Woodlands.

" We live in The Woodlands, and we want to share our passion and love for the sport with everyone," Davids said. "We want people to know the wide range of benefits available with cycling—better health, less pollution, alternative transportation, convenience and savings. Additionally, it is very fun to cycle with family and friends. Everybody will have a special place in our store."
