BikeTexas is proud to announce that our own Fernando Martinez has been named Advocate of the Year by the Alliance for Biking and Walking. Fernando received his award as part of the National Bike Summit on March 7.
In his 10 years of bicycle advocacy with BikeTexas, Fernando has worked tirelessly as the program manager of BikeTexas’ educational programs, which have reached over two million Texas children. Most recently, Fernando has spent two years in Brownsville working in the BikeTexas RGV program, working alongside local advocates and city leaders to activate Brownsville’s Bicycle Master Plan. Brownsville was recently named a bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, a testament to the hard work of Fernando, BikeTexas, and the committed local community.
BikeTexas congratulates Fernando on his achievement, and we’re delighted that he has brought the Advocate of the Year award back home to Texas.
