This week, staff traveled to Abilene, Fort Worth, and Wichita Falls to conduct teacher trainings. These trainings are part of our BikeTexas Safe Routes to School Program. In three days, about 80 elementary school teachers were trained in our Texas SuperCyclist Curriculum. In 2004, TBC trained about 100 teachers; we’re well beyond that mark this year. Last week, we trained professors from UT Austin as part of our Texas SuperCollege Program. These college professors then instruct student educators, developing the next generation of bicycle safety educators. Since October 2004, 450 student teachers have learned this curriculum and will soon be implementing this instruction in their own classrooms. Bicycle safety education in Texas is attracting more attention every season.

One thing that really ticks me off is a cyclist that makes no effort to assist the passing of a motor vehicle but "hogs" the road. The car v. cyclist attitude that many riders have created from years of fighting traffic hinder our efforts for equal access. What ever happened to the "Drive Texas Friendly" attitude we used to have in this state.

Don't know what to do with those old bike parts rusting away in the garage? Bikes Across Borders (BAB) can help. Based at the Rhizome Collective, an East Austin-based community organizing and urban sustainability center, BAB uses donated bike tools to fix recycled bicycles for distribution to community groups in the U.S., Mexico, Central America and Cuba. Organization members have rescued at least 500 discarded bikes from a bleak landfill future, delivering them to poor people all over North America. This year, BAB is working to put together bike shipments to El Paso, Cuba, Chiapas, the Texas/Mexico border, and local Austin immigrant groups.
