With Parking Scarce, Bikes Grow on Trees At Austin City Limits Music Festival

Every September Austin's Zilker Park, one mile west of downtown on Lady Bird Lake, becomes "Amsterdam for a Weekend" as thousands of cyclists, regular and accidental, descend on the parking-starved Austin City Limits festival for three days of live music. The 2008 ACL fest, which took place the weekend of September 26, was no exception.

Another Great Weekend at Hotter'n Hell Hundred

Last weekend, for the 11th year in a row, BikeTexas staff took the scenic journey up Hwy. 281 to Wichita Falls to attend Hotter'n Hell Hundred. It's always inspiring to see thousands of cyclists doing what they love, and this year was no exception. From our booth in the Expo Center, BikeTexas signed up almost 100 new and renewing members from all over Texas. It was a busy weekend for us! We had a great time and we can't wait to do it all again next year!

Many members took advantage of our new system of monthly memberships to renew at levels of $5, $10 or $20 (or more!) a month. Some appreciated BikeTexas' need for a more steady, reliable revenue stream, while others liked the convenience of pacing out their contribution over the year. To take advantage of these new join and renewal options, click here.
   

BikeTexas Partners with Circa-Austin

BikeTexas Partners with Circa-Austin on Bike Rides for Texas Conference Attendees.

A giant pecan tree provided relief from the near 100 degree July heat to conference attendees at the sprawling Hyatt Lost Pines Resort, on the Colorado River near Bastrop. BikeTexas staff was there to provide bicycles and cycling expertise to Circa-Austin, a destination management company. Circa provides a single point-of-contact for logistics and event activities for conference and convention guests in Central Texas (it also has a San Antonio office).

See You At Hotter'n Hell Hundred

Though we won't be holding our annual meeting there as we did in years past (see above article), we definitely wouldn't miss the Hotter'n Hell Hundred. If you're attending, please stop by our booth and say hello. We'll see you there, and good luck to all the participants!
