News By Bike: September 1
It's almost hard to belive that only a week ago, some Texans were gearing up for the Hotter'N Hell Hundred while others were bracing themselves for Harvey to make landfall. We've always known our state is big enough to hold the biggest triumphs and the deepest heartbreaks, and that Texans are strong enough in mind, body, and spirit to face whatever comes without backing down.
Gulf Coast friends, Texas has your back and won't let you get through this alone.
We're honored to announce an exciting partnership with Trek Bikes-- for every Trek sold in Texas in September, Trek will donate $10 to BikeTexas to support bicycle advocacy and education across the state! Need to upgrade or add to your N+1? Now's the time!
Hotter'n Hell Hundred is just a week away. We can't wait to see you there, so plan to stop by the BikeTexas booth and say hello! We'll have our jerseys, t-shirts, and bike lights available for purchase, and maybe one or two fun extras for HHH attendees.
Hotter'n Hell Hundred is just two weeks away, if you can believe that, and we'll be headed up to Wichita Falls for a fun weekend at the expo. Stop by the BikeTexas booth and say hello! We'll have our jerseys, t-shirts, and bike lights available for purchase.
August 9 is Book Lovers' Day! For your reading enjoyment, we’ve put together a handful of some bicycle-related books for you to kick back with after you’ve finished your ride. Books are listed in alphabetical order by title.
All links (except where noted) are to the books' pages on Amazon. If you decide to purchase through Amazon, please log into smile.amazon.com and choose BikeTexas (Texas Bicycle Coalition) as your beneficiary. Get a good book and support bicycle advocacy!
The title poem is the only one that's bike related, but as a parody on Emily Dickinson's slightly more famous work, it's top-notch. If you'd like to introduce your kids to some classic poetry without them knowing it, or need some new bedtime reading material, or just enjoy poetry yourself, it's a winner.
A real look at our transportation costs and how bikes can help create healthier humans, boost local economies, and foster a sense of community. Also by Elly Blue: Everyday Bicycling(link is to Microcosm Publishing), a short and very sweet how-to guide for beginning riders.
This is an academic research book, so it does not read like a novel. However, it is a gem that is chock-full of key information to take to your city officials, and as such is a must-have reference for advocates.
Dr. Pucher was the speaker at our Shifting Gears Lecture Series during the 2013 legislative session.
Ride along with Portland’s former bicycle coordinator as she recounts the journey to make Portland one of the best bicycling cities in the U.S. You'll recognize many of the roadblocks and frustrations that Ms. Burk faced along the way as the same ones that continue to plague advocates across the U.S., and also be inspired at how those roadblocks were turned into mere speed bumps.
A great look at the history of who exactly pushed for modern-day roads to be built. (Non-)Spoiler alert: it was people who ride bikes! The interactive version is especially great for enjoying all the included photos and tons of historical tidbits that Mr. Reid includes in the book.
Former NYC transportation commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan came to work with a mission: Make NYC safer for pedestrians and people who ride bikes. The book chronicles successes, failures, and above all, Ms. Sadik-Khan's determination to transform her city.
Our own Robin Stallings provided the cover quote for this excellent book that covers all the basics. Not sure how to get started rolling along on two wheels? Ms. Bambrick has boiled it all down for you right here.
