Education Group Bike Rides Texas NAACP Convention Includes Bike Ride

Texas NAACP Convention Includes Bike Ride

Riders at the 76th NAACP Annual State Convention in Corpus Christi.The Texas NAACP 76th Annual State Convention at the bayfront Omni Hotel in Corpus Christi, TX, included a bicycle ride with BikeTexas as a morning activity.

On Friday, October 12, BikeTexas took a group of NAACP convention attendees for a seven-mile ride along the bay. Included in the group was Texas NAACP president Gary Bledsoe, who had to get back for a presentation at the convention and missed out on the group photo. BikeTexas enjoys the opportunity to connect with old friends and has conducted around six rides for the Texas NAACP Convention.

The Texas NAACP has influenced the National NAACP to have a ride at the national convention, too. In the last legislative session, the Texas NAACP joined BikeTexas in supporting the Complete Streets Bill authored by Senator Rodney Ellis & Representative Linda Harper-Brown. BikeTexas appreciates this connection to the Texas NAACP and enjoys joining together to promote cycling for all Texans.
