Police said the man was riding westbound in the 1400 block of West Sixth Street near Lamar Boulevard when he was struck by a four-door Honda Civic that was also traveling west. The man, whose name has not been released pending family notification, died at Brackenridge Hospital a short time after the 3 a.m. incident.

Thank You Volunteers

Volunteers have an enormous impact on Texas Bicycle Coalition. From those who attended Cyclists in Suits BikeTexas Lobby Day, to those who are working with BikeTexas Local Outreach Coordinators, our volunteers ensure that Texas Bicycle Coalition can effectively carry its mission to advance bicycle access, safety and education for all Texans. More than 25 people assisted Texas Bicycle Coalition in managing the checkpoints at the three Urban Assault Series races this spring. Volunteers from the San Antonio, Dallas, and Austin regions made certain that cyclists obeyed the traffic rules while racing between checkpoints to complete the various challenges. The Urban Assault Series contributed several thousand dollars to the BikeTexas Share the Road program, advancing this vital message. Thank you all for your time and support.

Bike/Car Speed Traps in Utah

Five Police Departments in Utah will participate in a program to identify and reprimand motorists not sharing the road with bicycles. Plainclothes police officers will ride bicycles while officers in squad cars will issue violations. More information can be found on Salt Lake newsradio KSL1160

Bikes Across Borders

As Published - BikeTexas Today - Advocacy & Action - April - May 2004

By Beth Ferguson

Don't know what to do with those old bike parts rusting away in the garage? Bikes Across Borders (BAB) can help. Based at the Rhizome Collective, an East Austin-based community organizing and urban sustainability center, BAB uses donated bike tools to fix recycled bicycles for distribution to community groups in the U.S., Mexico, Central America and Cuba. Organization members have rescued at least 500 discarded bikes from a bleak landfill future, delivering them to poor people all over North America. This year, BAB is working to put together bike shipments to El Paso, Cuba, Chiapas, the Texas/Mexico border, and local Austin immigrant groups.
