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


From BikeTexas:

Need a bike rack or a rental bike for South by Southwest? Know someone who does? We have what you need.


From around Texas:

Andrew Tilin of Austin was killed while changing a tire on a roadway shoulder last weekend

Melissa Robles of McAllen was killed while riding Monday morning. Our condolences go out to the families and friends of both fallen riders.

Early voting in Texas continues until March 2. Election day is March 6.

El Paso and Weslaco made the CDC's list of real-world examples of infrastructure that can increase physical activity.

Ten Texas mayors have joined the 10-minute walk to a park campaign.


From elsewhere:

Check out these great pedestrian spaces from around the world.

See what percentage of each state's roads are funded by user fees.

The National Physical Activity Plan Alliance has released the first report card of walking in the U.S. The results are... well, let's just say this isn't a report card we would ever have wanted to take home.

In most US cities, Vision Zero remains a nice idea rather than a reality.


Have a great weekend!
