BikeTexas is excited to announce that on October 1, 2009, we began the development of the new BikeTexas ParentsPlus Program. The program is funded through a Texas Department of Transportation grant, and will provide parents, plus other adults concerned with bicycle and pedestrian safety, the certification training and resources necessary to develop neighborhood bicycling and walking events. These events will incorporate safety messages in a fun and healthy venue and will bring the safety lessons to the larger community, thus amplifying their effect.
In October, the City of Austin showed itself to be a leader by passing Texas's first citywide Safe Passing ordinance. (Click here for a piece by UT journalism student Melanie Torre, featuring an interview with BikeTexas Executive Director Robin Stallings.)
But other Texas cities are not far behind. Cyclists in towns and cities from around Texas are organizing to get their city councils to commit to the safety of all road users by enacting a Safe Passing ordinance.
On November, 2, 2009, San Antonio cyclists got a chance to hang out with San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and ride the Missions Trail, after the morning San Antonio Bikes Summit at City Hall.
A number of City department heads and program managers joined San Antonio bike advocates to hear Mayor Castro outline his hopes to make San Antonio a League of American Bicyclists-certified Bicycle Friendly Community.

IMBA Will Teach Trailbuilding in Waco Dec. 5-6!
Hey, Waco trail enthusiasts - are you interested in learning about trailbuilding from the experts at the International Mountain Bicycling Association?

BikeTexas Attends Launch of New Texas DMVOn October 30, 2009 BikeTexas Executive Director Robin Stallings attended the press conference announcing the launch of the new Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV).
License plates and a few other functions have moved from the Texas Department of Transportation to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles.
This is of interest to BikeTexas because TxDMV is one of the key state agencies (Texas Education Agency is the other) that we work with regarding the Share the Road Y'all, God Bless Texas and God Bless America specialty license plates. The revenue from the registration fees of those license plates funds our bike safety education and Safe Routes to School programs.
University Students Learn Bicycle Safety Skills
This semester, two university teachers, Dr. Rozena McCabe of Huston-Tillotson University and Tere Ramirez of UT-Austin, asked BikeTexas staff to conduct a bicycle safety presentation and ride for their future-Physical Education-teacher students. Rozena and Tere are both certified by BikeTexas in the SuperCyclist Curriculum and have been dedicated to passing on the SuperCyclist safety program to their Kinesiology and Health Education students.
