Kids Kup at Flat Rock Ranch

Kids Kup Flat Rock RanchThe weather was as good as it gets for the March 13, 2010 BikeTexas Kids Kup at Flat Rock Ranch near Comfort, Texas. The many shade trees provided cool places for the children and their parents to gather for the pre-ride safety talk. There were 23 Kids Kup riders, ages 4 to 11, that enjoyed the twisty, winding course. South Texas Off-Road Mountain Bikers (STORM) hosted this event in the Texas Mountain Bike Racing Association (TMBRA) 2010 Spring Texas Championship Series. Saturday also saw TMBRA racers participating in a series of short track and time trial races. The opportunity to watch the other riders compete added even more excitement to the Kids Kup event.

San Antonio City Council

Congratulations to the citizens of the Alamo City, who now have a Safe Passing Ordinance!

On a rainy Thursday, February 4, 2010, San Antonio City Council passed the Safe Passing Ordinance with the same language as SB 488, the Safe Passing Bill. The Safe Passing bill passed overwhelmingly in the 2009 State Legislative Session, but was subsequently vetoed by Governor Perry. Like the statewide bill, this local ordinance lists cyclists as well as pedestrians, motorcyclists, tow truck operators and other vulnerable road users as requiring special consideration when encountered on the roadway by motorists.
