The Texas Trails and Active Transportation Conference provided a great venue to honor some champions who have truly helped make bicycling better in Texas - with BikeTexas Champion Awards! Awards went to Leslie Luciano and Paul Douglas of Austin, Durwood Mayfield of Lubbock and Annie Melton of Dallas.
After four days packed with speakers, workshops and field trips, the 2010 Texas Trails and Active Transportation Conference successfully concluded on Saturday, February 6, with a bike ride to the BikeTexas office for a happy hour and tamales.
Recently, the Brazos Injury Prevention Coalition partnered with Texas A&M athletics and Hard Hats for Little Heads to provide every 2nd grader in Bryan/College Station with a free helmet. Bobbi Brooks, Program Coordinator for the Brazos Injury Prevention Coalition, joined A&M student athletes at the elementary schools to give a bike safety presentation and fit the children's helmets.
Safe Passing in San Antonio!
Congratulations to the citizens of the Alamo City, who now have a Safe Passing Ordinance!

There were over 200 in attendance in support of the plan, with 42 members of the community commuting to the meeting by bicycle.
