Biking Roots will celebrate the grand opening of its new facility at 21631 Rhodes Road, Ste. A101, Spring, on Jan. 4. Owners Evan and Alise Bailey first opened the retail bike shop at 3315 Spring Cypress Road, Ste. 5E, Spring, in September 2019.

"We are a family-owned retail bike shop specializing in mountain bikes and want to help get more families out on the trails in Houston," Evan Bailey said. "We have outgrown our current location and needed more space to provide room for our rental fleet and future bike brands to help the community get on bikes."

In partnership with City Place, Biking Roots will also be hosting its inaugural Rudolph Ride on Dec. 18 at 10 a.m.—marking the first event for a new bike club to be established at City Place in 2022. The route will begin at Star Cinema Grill Springwoods, 1495 Lake Plaza Drive, Spring, and wind through City Place and its nature preserve, concluding at the Gingerbread Village located across from Southwestern Energy, 10000 Energy Drive, Spring. Participants are encouraged to get festive for the ride as gift cards from local restaurants and retailers will be awarded to the cyclists with the best holiday costume and best bike decoration. 832-510-4696. www.bikingroots.com
