Ironman Texas 2015 THIS WEEKEND!

IRONMAN TEXAS – SATURDAY, MAY 16TH

Lots of traffic implications and inconveniences this weekend but well worth it for our community! The Ironman Texas race brings many visitors and tourists each year along with a great revenue and job increase for The Woodlands and surrounding areas.  Not only that, the Ironman organization’s philanthropic ventures benefit many great organizations in need. Read more about the organization, and stay informed about road closures and delays…

MAY is…

may3Can you believe it is May already? We’ve decided that each month we will post a newsletter focused on the month we’ve entered into and what kinds of things are specific to that month.

There are many fun things  celebrated in May, and some are specific to our area.

Hopefully, you will be able to enjoy some of these great events…

The Woodlands currently is a bronze designated Bicycle Friendly Community, with a view of achieving silver.  2015 marks the 3rd year that The Woodlands Township has partnered with the Bike The Woodlands Coalition to celebrate Bike to Work Day, Tuesday, May 12, 2015.
