News By Bike: Links for You to Read (Sept 4)

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

 

viva countdown 9 daysFrom BikeTexas:

Volunteer for VIVA! Streets on September 13! (We also have volunteer opportunities coming up in San Antonio and Dallas, so stay tuned... or go ahead and fill out our volunteer form so we know you're interested. We'll be in touch!)

Five new Texas businesses have been designated as bike friendly by the League. That's 25 all together now!

VIVA! Streets is nine days away! Bring the family to play in the street. Not sure how to get there? See the VIVA! Streets transportation guide here.

 

From around Texas:

The City of Kyle passed a hands free ordinance this week.

Google's self-driving car encountered something new in Austin-- a person doing a trackstand on a bike.

Check out these excellent tips for driving in and around school zones. Remember, every school zone in Texas is a hands-free zone!

 

From elsewhere:

Can you ride a bike in the suburbs, or is it just too impratical?

City of L.A. officials don't seem to get what bike lanes are for.

More thoughts about the Federal Highway Administration's clarifying what funds are for.

Riding a bike may form stronger habits than driving.

A new survey confirms what advocates have long believed-- "Share the Road" signs are too unclear to be helpful.

And another article about how roads are funded.

Meanwhile in NYC, one precinct has their priorities badly out of order.

And finally-- sometimes you manage to put so many good articles out in one week, the best suggestion is to read them all. So take a look at all of People for Bikes' blog posts this week.

 

Have a great weekend!
