Texas Moves Up in Bicycle Friendly States Again

Mesquite TX Teacher Training 2013For the second year in a row, Texas has jumped five spots in the League of American Bicyclists' Bicycle Friendly State rankings! We've moved up from #27 in 2012 to #22 in 2013.

Once again, our highest score came in the Education and Encouragement category. Thanks to programs like Safe Routes to School and the accompanying Public Information and Education program, the SafeCyclist Curriculum that trains teachers to teach bike safety in PE class, plus new programs like College Active Transportation Safety, more Texans than ever are hearing about bicycle and walking safety. This work can only be made possible by you! Support from BikeTexas members for our programs plus the hard work of cyclists across the state to spread the word about safe and fun cycling has contributed to Texas moving up in the bike-friendly ranks once again.

We still have a long way to go, but we're glad to see Texas is making progress toward being a great place to walk and bike. See Texas' full report card here.

Also in the Bicycle Friendly America program, two Texas businesses have been named as new Bicycle Friendly Businesses in the Spring 2013 Designations! Congratulations to the City of Fort Worth (Bronze) and Texas Instruments in Plano (Bronze) for your success. See the full Spring 2013 list of Bicycle Friendly Businesses here.
