News By Bike: Links for You to Read (Nov 20)

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

 

gift guide santa and elf teaser biketexasFrom BikeTexas:

Our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide launches on Monday! Want the announcement (and our newsletters) in your inbox? Sign up for BikeTexas emails here. 

The days are short! You need lights! Order enough for everyone you know here.

We're waiting to hear if a Texan is the winner in the Saris National Poster Contest, but in the meantime, check out all the amazing Texas poster entries.

Fundraising Friday is back at BikeTexas! Donate, join, or renew any Friday from now to the end of the year and we'll send you a free gift.

As of this week, seven Texas cities have been designated as bike friendly by the League of American Bicyclists, including one at GOLD! 

In Congress, the transportation bill grinds on. We don't think we'll have any Action Alerts in the next week or so, but if anything comes up we'll have to move in a hurry, so keep an eye out for updates.

Registration is open now for the 2016 Texas Trails and Active Transportation Conference.

 

From around Texas:

Brownsville is working on safer design for a blocked frontage road.

The Houston Bike Challenge rolls on. Are you in?

Do you ride a bike in San Antonio? SA Tomorrow wants to hear from you!

El Paso MPO is conducting a transportation survey. The results of this survey could guide the next steps for transportation in El Paso, so it's critical that they hear from people who walk or ride a bike (or both!) in the region. Make sure your voice is heard and that El Paso MPO knows that active transportation is in high demand!

Don't forget, Houston: elections aren't over yet. Make plans to vote in the runoff!

Hutto's next Bike and Brunch is Sunday.

Bike Friendly Richardson is hosting its seventh Black Friday Ride next week. Don't miss out!

El Paso, mark your calendar for the Bike Plan Open House on December 2.

 

From elsewhere:

Support the FHWA's proposals for safer street design.

Many of us turn to our bikes to make sense of the world. This guy did it last weekend to make his city a bit brighter.

Walkable neighborhoods = better health.

Getting older doesn't mean you stop riding-- just ask these folks.

Data to the rescue for Capital Bikeshare.

Exercise can keep you upbeat all winter long.

There are good ways to prevent pedestrian death, but brighter clothes are not the solution.

 

Have a great weekend!
