The Houston ISD SuperCyclist Training scheduled for Friday, September 30, has been postponed due to the Hurricane Rita evacuation. A new date has not yet been set.

The critical need for this training was made apparent by the recent deaths of two Houston-area elementary students in bicycle crashes. Due to the important nature of this training, Texas Bicycle Coalition and Houston ISD are committed to rescheduling a new date in a timely manner.

Texas Bicycle Coalition & Communities Respond to Hurricane Katrina

BikeNews; Advocacy

bike_donation_poster_2005.jpgWhen Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast this week, countless people lost their homes, their livelihoods, and their means of transportation. Thousands of people from neighboring Louisiana have taken refuge in cities and towns across Texas. Texas Bicycle Coalition is working with the Texas bicycle community to coordinate a thoughtful and concerted response.

Several staff members visited the Toney Burger Center in Austin, a local Red Cross shelter for hurricane victims, on August 31 to assess need and determine how the cycling community may be able to help. As a result of this visit, and with growing support from the bicycle industry and our membership, Texas Bicycle Coalition is spearheading efforts to provide bicycle education and recreation to the thousands of refugee children living at Red Cross shelters.

Wichita Falls : A Cycling Gem on the Prairie

BikeNews; Community

Wichita Falls may not be on the radar of every destination cyclist just yet, but over the last couple of decades the small city near the Red River has established itself as a haven for great cycling. Bolstered by cycling advocates like Roby Christie and one of the most successful collegiate cycling programs at Midwestern State University, Wichita Falls draws thousands of cyclists each August to face the challenges served up by the Hotter’N Hell Hundred.

About 25 years ago, the City of Wichita Falls considered, among other schemes, instituting a rocking chair marathon in order to increase tourism, raise revenue, and celebrate the city’s centennial anniversary. Fortunately for the cycling community, Roby Christie stepped in to suggest the city take another tack and establish a bicycle race; Hotter’N Hell was born and Wichita Falls has never been the same.
