Montrose Bikes

The Montrose Management District is offering a new service to businesses interested in promoting bicycle use in Montrose. The District is offering to supply and install bicycle racks to eligible commercial property owners, free of charge. The bike racks come in three colors; red, orange and yellow. At least one rack per site will be branded with the Montrose Management District and BikeHouston insignia.

Requesting a Bike Rack

In order to be considered eligible for the program, applicants must have a location for the racks, on concrete, outside of the public right of way. The attached waiver must be signed by the property owner (not the tenant or owner of the business) as well. Please complete and email the request form and waiver to Josh Hawes.

Please allow up to two weeks for a response from the Montrose Management District. If the site is selected, representatives with the Management District will schedule a time to review the preferred site at the place of business. If possible, we ask that the applicant provide a copy of any property survey or other documentation proving the desired bike rack location is out of the public right of way.

Application or completion of a waiver does not guarantee the installation of any bike racks. The Montrose Management District will consider visibility, proximity to other racks, likelihood of use, district wide demand, and overall project budget when deciding on installations.

Current Bike Rack Locations

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
