HOUSTON – Ask 2: Is it legal to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk?
Answer: We reached out to Law Enforcement Liaison Katie Alexander to get her take. According to Alexander, when it comes to the state of Texas there is not a law that prohibits riding on the sidewalk. However, you should check your city’s ordinances.
“I know that the city of Houston has an ordinance that says in a business district you cannot ride on the sidewalk. So, if you are out in Sugarland or Katy make sure you check with your local police department to verify whether or not they have city ordinances and what they are,” said Alexander.
