A Message From the Director

Dear Fellow Texas Cyclist,

Your past support has been the basis for many BikeTexas successes, and we will continue to depend on your support to meet two major goals.

First, we want to effectively meet the challenges today to cycling in Texas, like the Safe Passing Act in the upcoming 2009 Texas legislative session.

Second, we seek to build a stronger organization to meet the challenges facing the next generation of Texas cyclists. We have come far beyond the foundation that our predecessors built in the 1990s. And bigger things lie ahead.

Eyecatching New Trailer Wrap Donated By 3M

We were thrilled when, in 2006, the Bicycle Sport Shop donated a 20 foot trailer to BikeTexas. It's been invaluable for hauling around our fleet of 50 bikes (using the rack generously donated by Saris) and other equipment. There was just one thing missing though, and that was a trailer wrap!

Texas Bicycle Coalition Annual Membership Meeting

Saturday, August 30 at 3 pm

Now you have a great excuse to check out our new and improved office - at the Texas Bicycle Coalition Annual Membership Meeting! It's the perfect opportunity not only to see the space, but to meet our dedicated staff and board and connect with other cyclists. A reception will follow afterward, so we'll have the opportunity to catch up with old friends and get acquainted with new ones.

If you can't make it here in person, you can join the meeting by teleconference. Look for details on how to call in on the newsletter next month.

   

New Office Update: A New Sign & Fresh Paint

This September will mark two years that we have been in our "new" office at 1902 East 6th Street in Austin. It has been a work in progress on a tight cash flow, with plenty of sweat equity put in by TBC staff and friends.

Moving is always disruptive and this one didn't come at a good time. But the old space, half the square footage with storage spread over different rental units across town, was so cramped that it was dysfunctional - the move had to be made. The new space (3000 s.f.) had been vacant for some time. Texas Bicycle Coalition negotiated an improvement allowance with the landlord and soon we had completed an interior paint job, sliding glass windows on interior walls to spread the light, and a wood floor over the concrete - a new life flowed through the space. Then we went to work on the exterior.
