STRATEGIC PLAN 2014-2019
The 2014-2019 Strategic Plan was created with the input of over 1400 BikeTexas members, supporters, sponsors, and potential supporters and partners. “This strategy will help the staff and board ensure the organization is taking action to increase cycling throughout Texas. The fact that our strategy is strong and was created by the community lets us know that what we’re doing is going to succeed with the support of all people who bike across the state,” says Annie Melton, BikeTexas Board Chair.
