It's a slightly belated News By Bike this week, so here's hoping you still have plenty of time this weekend to kick back with a little bike reading.

 

NewByBikeFrom BikeTexas: 

Our annual bike giveaway is underway! Winner to be drawn at our Annual Membership Meeting on September 24. Don't miss out!

Hotter'n Hell Hundred is just a week away. We can't wait to see you there, so plan to stop by the BikeTexas booth and say hello! We'll have our jerseys, t-shirts, and bike lights available for purchase, and maybe one or two fun extras for HHH attendees.

Back to School is coming, and our BikePedEd materials are perfect for your budding active transportation enthusiast, her teacher, and her whole school. Find out more and ask your child's school to check out our safe biking & walking materials.

Our weekly Trails of Texas series continues this week with the City of Allen urban trailsFollow us on Facebook to see a different trail every Friday.

 

From around Texas:

A man riding a bike was struck and killed by an unknown driver in San Antonio early this morning. Our thoughts are with the man's family and friends.

The City of Houston is backing the high-speed Houston-to-Dallas rail plan.

 

From elsewhere:

Calgary's cycle track tryout is doing quite well.

As is the new bicycle grid in Edmonton. Good job, Canada!

The world's biggest bicycle parking garage is under construction in Utrecht, Netherlands.

Seattle's Limebike has kicked off a program that provides bikeshare access for those without a credit card or smartphone.

Hear from the nation's oldest female BMX rider--a 67-year-old Iowan named Kittie Weston-Knauer.

 

Have a great weekend!
