Texas Bicycle Coalition will host the Annual BikeTexas Membership Meeting on Saturday, December 1, 2007 in its offices located at 1902 East 6th Street in Austin. The meeting will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., to be followed immediately by a Happy Hour and tours of the new TBC facilities.
In previous years, annual meetings had been held in August at Wichita Fall’s Hotter n’ Hell Hundred Expo on Friday late afternoon. Attendance at the meetings was historically very light, primarily because of members’ focus on preparation for the HHH ride early Saturday morning.
TBC has doubled its office space to 3000 square feet from the previous location on East 5th Street. A storage facility in back includes two large intermodal containers. Bike safety education material kits are assembled in a TBC warehouse two doors away. Improvements have been made slowly over the past year through a very tight cash stream and plenty of staff and volunteer “sweat equity.”
