A&M Is Texas' Newest Bicycle Friendly University

Viernes 06 de Noviembre de 2015 07:35

Texas A&M University is renowned for its school spirit and many traditions. After this week, the Aggies can add one more tradition to the list: being a great place to ride a bike.

maroon bikes cats biketexas bicycle educationThe League of American Bicyclists announced the latest round of Bicycle Friendly Universities on November 5, and A&M entered the list for the first time with a Bronze-level award. A&M joins Texas Tech University and the University of Texas at Austin as Texas' three bike-friendly universities. Together, these three schools serve over 145,000 students from across Texas and around the world.

Promoting bicycling and walking on (and to and from) campus is ideal for colleges and universities. Why? Active transportation solves parking problems; allows students to make smart economic choices; addresses sustainability and air quality concerns; and encourages active, safe, and healthy lifestyles for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The healthy habits students pick up in their college years can stay with them for life.

Congratulations, Texas A&M, and thanks for making Texas a great place to ride a bike!

Texas Winners: Saris 5th Grade Poster Contest

Viernes 06 de Noviembre de 2015 07:14

We've found the secret for ensuring intense discussion in the BikeTexas office: ask us to judge a poster contest. After the entries to the Saris 5th Grade National Poster Contest arrived, we had the hard work of choosing the top three. This year's submissions were excellent!

This year's poster contest theme was #LongForTheRide, and submissions had to include the hashtag somewhere in the poster.

The winning Texas poster comes from Bonner Elementary School in Tyler! The first place winner will receive a bike, helmet, and bell from Saris, and the poster is winging its way to the Saris headquarters for its spot in the nationwide contest right now. Everyone gets to vote in the national contest, so keep an eye out for us telling you when it's time! 2015 poster contest 1st place biketexas bicycle education

 

Second place for Texas is from Gerard Elementary School in Cleburne. The second place winner will receive a helmet and a bell from Saris.

2015 Saris 5th Grade Poster Contest

Viernes 18 de Septiembre de 2015 08:09

BikeTexas is proud to once again be your Texas coordinator for the Saris 5th Grade Poster Contest! This year's theme is #LongForTheRide (yes, a hashtag), and students should create posters that show what they love about riding a bike.

Saris poster contest header 2015Here's what to do!

  1. Download the official rules here.
  2. Get your 5th graders busy creating! Make sure they include the required elements in the official rules, including using the hashtag #longfortheride somewhere in the design.
  3. A little hint: Please discourage your students from using licensed characters in their poster. We all love the idea of Iron Man on a bike, but posters with licensed charcters are unlikely to win.
  4. Choose a schoolwide winner, attach a completed permission slip to the back, and send the winning poster to us postmarked by October 21:

BikeTexas
ATTN: Brenda Chuleewah
P.O. Box 1121
Austin, TX 78767

That's it! The statewide winners will be announced shortly after October 21. The top three posters in the state will receive:

First Place:

Schwinn Bicycle
Schwinn Helmet
Schwinn Bell
And the winning Texas poster goes on to the national contest for a chance to win a trip to Washington, D.C., plus for his/her school to win new bike parking!

Second Place:

Schwinn Helmet
Schwinn Bell

Third Place:

Schwinn Helmet

Now's the time! Get your 5th graders' creative juices flowing for the 2015 Saris National 5th Grade Poster Contest!
