The stars in Texas keep getting brighter for people who ride bikes: three Texas cities were added to the League of American Bicyclists' Bicycle Friendly Communities list this week!
Congratulations to our three new Honorable Mention cities:
While Texas' current Bicycle Friendly State ranking is disappointing, Texas has four Bicycle Friendly Communities that have surpassed honorable mention: Austin (Silver), Houston (Bronze), San Antonio (Bronze), and The Woodlands (Bronze). We also have Bicycle Friendly Businesses around the state, including five new ones recognized in the most recent round, and two Bicycle Friendly Universities: Texas Tech University in Lubbock and The University of Texas at Austin.
These designations represent a lot of hard work and determination to make Texas a great place to ride a bike. Here's what it looks like by the numbers:
