It's Sales Tax Holiday weekend! Get a BikeTexas jersey or an I Bike TX t-shirt this weekend, and save a little cash you can put towards some new bike lights (which, alas, are not tax-free). 

The time is now! BikeTexas' Annual Membership Drive and Bicycle Giveaway is underway right now, and you don't want to miss out! If you're a monthly sustaining member, you're already entered to win a new bike. Join BikeTexas or renew your annual membership this month to be entered to win!

As a special bonus, if you join, renew, or donate on any Friday in August, you'll get a free gift! Use the hashtag #FundraisingFriday on all your favorite social media sites to tell people why you support bicycle advocacy.

From elsewhere:
