The Tyler Bicycle Club was on hand to celebrate the occasion. The new route, which connects cyclists to Golden Rod Park, is part of a revised bicycle plan to connect neighborhoods to city parks. Mayor Seeber has been an ardent supporter of the bicycle community in Tyler, and recognizes that providing bicycle routes will facilitate residents’ enjoyment of the city.

Pearland City Good Citizen

As Published - TBC Listserve

by Chip

I was riding South on 1128 today when a white pickup coming the opposite direction begins to slow down. I thought to myself, "Oh no...Here comes a Bubba who wants to intimidate the spindly flourescent-clothed yuppie." I almost fell off my bicycle when he rolled down the window and explained that there was a huge dog in the road ahead and to be really careful. I thanked him profusely and, believe it or not, he turned around right in the middle of 1128 and drove his truck next to me until I was past the dog. He was in a white Pearland City Dept. truck. I still can't believe it. There are nice people out here. This story should be shared with those in other areas of Houston where cyclists and drivers have known feuds. More reasons to wave to everyone. Anyone have other positive stories for a change?
