Premiere Business Members & Sponsors

Fort Worth's Lockheed Martin Recreation Association Bicycle Club (LMRABC) teamed with Colonel's Bicycles, Bicycles, Inc., and the Fort Worth Bicycling Association (FWBA) to show highly visible support for the BIKE Fort Worth Plan at a public hearing on Feb 9, 2010. One-hundred twenty bright yellow t-shirts with an "I Support BIKE Fort Worth" design by LMRABC member Kyle Carr were purchased by the four organizations and handed out for free. The Fort Worth City Council chamber was filled to standing room only with cyclists in yellow or their respective cycling jerseys. There were over 200 in attendance in support of the plan, with 42 members of the community commuting to the meeting by bicycle.
The Alliance for Biking and Walking has released their Benchmarking Report for 2010. This report is intended to mark the state of biking and walking around the country, and to help cities and states plan for better biking and walking programs and infrastructure.
According to a new study done by graduate students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, bicycling generates a bigger economic impact for the state of Wisconsin than the deer hunting industry - about $1.5 billion annually. And in addition to economic benefits, bicycling could potentially generate health benefits as well, up to $319 million a year.
BikeTexas Hosts Ride Leader Class
On January 20, 2010 BikeTexas opened its doors to the 24 volunteer ride leaders of Social Cycling ATX for a three hour training in leading rides. Eileen Schaubert of the Austin Cycling Association led the training with Stanton Truxillo, also of ACA, assisting. As their website states, "Social Cycling ATX is a place to find and start bike rides of all kinds in Austin Texas. It's really that simple."
