Bike Petition Garners Attention for Cyclists

Petition Update
submitted by BikeDFW

"I feel that now it is up to us to really beat the bushes, so to speak, and get that average non cyclist to pay attention and help with our cause," says BikeDFW president Eric Jackson. "If we can get the average person to accept cycling in greater DFW as a good thing and a viable means of transportation, we will have accomplished more than enough to say this organization matters." Luckily, we've had the assistance of several local news stations who have covered our petition in light of the recent string of cyclist-related crashes in the past few months, including Channel 11 KTVT, CW33, and at least two articles in the Dallas Morning News.

Grass Routes efforts for Bike Routes/Lanes: The Plan -- Ask

By Jim Wilson
President LMRA Bicycle Club

Do you live just outside the “Big City”? Do you enjoy bicycling in your smaller town but wish there were some Bike Routes/Lanes in your city? You might live in a community outside Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, or El Paso; a major reason for your choice of residence likely includes the safer cycling. Well there’s more than just reduced traffic in these smaller communities, smaller government and greater emphasis on recreation and quality of life mean you can help bring about greater cycling safety. The first necessary action is the easiest but most overlooked- ASK!

LMRA Bicycle Club Participates in Benbrook Adopt-a-Mile

As part of Benbrook’s Adopt-A-Mile Program, on June 2nd, the LMRA Bicycle Club held its first workday for trash pick-up on Winscott Road in Benbrook along the club’s adopted mile. This mile of road, from the Benbrook Community YMCA to Memorial Oaks Drive in Pecan Valley Park, is part of a designated bicycle route that stretches the length of Winscott and Vickery Roads in Benbrook. The route, which has bicycle signs to alert motorists, was established by the Benbrook City Council in June of 2006 in response to a request from the LMRA Bicycle Club. Benbrook also approved a future city-wide on-road bicycle network in February of this year.
