Rick Houdek, owner of Vintage Cycle at 20326 Hwy. 249, Ste. 300, Houston, said he plans to open the new business in April alongside Harry Twidwell, who has more than 30 years of experience as a bicycle mechanic.

The shop will sell various bicycles and offer repair and rental services as well as social rides.

Houdek said he chose the Vintage Park location because of its close vicinity to cycling-friendly infrastructure such as Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve and the Cypress Creek mountain bike trails. This will be the first business venture for the former middle school teacher, and Houdek said he looks forward to bringing more cycling opportunities to the community.
