News By Bike: Links for You to Read (Jan 23)

Looking for some weekend reading? Look no further than these links we thought were worth sharing this week: 

 

cyclists in suits 2013 biketexasFrom BikeTexas:

Register now for Cyclists in Suits - Texas' Bike Lobby Day on March 30! Visit your elected officials' offices and talk to them about what's important to you as a person who rides a bike. Don't miss out!

 

From around Texas:

TxDOT & TTI want to hear from you about transportation options in your neighborhood.

Irving police are looking for the hit-and-run driver who injured Sandy Dalton earlier this week.

People who ride bikes in El Paso delivered 1400 books to kids with Ride for Reading.

Laredo joins the list of Texas cities that are planning for bikes and pedestrians. 

And McAllen is about to join the list of Texas cities with bikeshare.

People who ride bikes in Lubbock are working toward a safer community to ride in.

 

From elsewhere: 

A world record falls-- students in Australia just rode the world's longest bike.

Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx calls on mayors around the country to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety.

Speaking of Secretary Foxx, check out his Big Block of Cheese Day tweets.

File this one under "unbelievable": A man on a bike in Georgia was ticketed after being hit by a car. The citation? Cycling on the roadway. That's legal in Georgia, just like in Texas.

Also from the unbelievable department: A woman in Florida has been arrested after trying to scare a cyclist-- by shooting at him.

Finishing on a happier note: City planning software from CityEngine has options to add protected bike lanes and see what they'd look like on a 3D model.

 

Have a great weekend!
