This semester, two university teachers, Dr. Rozena McCabe of Huston-Tillotson University and Tere Ramirez of UT-Austin, asked BikeTexas staff to conduct a bicycle safety presentation and ride for their future-Physical Education-teacher students. Rozena and Tere are both certified by BikeTexas in the SuperCyclist Curriculum and have been dedicated to passing on the SuperCyclist safety program to their Kinesiology and Health Education students.
Kids Kup at Rocky Hill Ranch Near SmithvilleSaturday, November 7, 2009 was a beautiful day for the 24 small mountain bike racers at the BikeTexas Kids Kup at Rocky Hill Ranch.
This was the last Texas Mountin Bike Racing Association (TMBRA) race of the Fall series. Be sure and check the calendar for the Spring Series. If you don't have one already, go get yourself and your child a mountain bike and start a healthy, fun habit. Everyone will love it!
Rocky Hill Ranch is near Smithville, 45 miles out of Austin, and is well worth a trip for the 25 miles of trails for riding and hiking. There is camping, RV hookups, showers, a saloon and café with "Chicken Bingo" (yes, with live chickens!) and a wonderful sunset view from the café.
BikeTexas Volunteers Help with Safe Passing Petition - Now Over 6,700 Signatures!
Signatures on the Safe Passing Petition had been coming in faster than BikeTexas staff could process them. So we decided to call on the cycling community for help, and they certainly stepped up! We held two volunteer nights a week for three weeks in late October and early November, and our wonderful volunteers got the job done.
About Us; Members
Members are BikeTexas
BikeTexas is the only statewide bicycle advocacy and education organization in Texas, established in 1991 as the Texas Bicycle Coalition, to advance bicycle access, safety and education. BikeTexas is member, sponsor and affilitate driven. Our member base includes individuals, cycling clubs, cycling events, bike manufacturers, retailers and shops, as well as Chamber of Commerce and other civic organizations.
According to a study produced by the National Sporting Goods Association, about 4 million Texans ride a bicycle at least once a year. Currently, only a tiny fraction of them actively support BikeTexas - imagine the successes that can be achieved if every cyclist in the state joined their voices with ours.
Members provide BikeTexas with numbers that matter. The power and influence of an advocacy organization is intimately linked to the number of active members who support the work of the organization. Membership builds the clout of an organization’s message, and provides it with a network of advocates that can deliver that message to, and educate, legislators at critical times. Membership dues pay the bills, but most importantly, they provide leverage for initiatives like our license plates and education programs.
