BikeTexas was honored to receive the Innovation Award while attending the National Bike Summit in Washington D.C. This award is designated for an organization that pioneers or invents new ways to promote biking and walking.
Thanks in part to our traveling bike fleet, BikeTexas is able to organize rides with policymakers, agency staff and nonprofit organizations that cultivates important political relationships and build bridges with new constituencies. One such relationship led to our award of the 2011 President’s Award from the state NAACP for “going above and beyond the call of duty to develop interest in biking and green benefits nurturing increased biking in the African American Community”.
BikeTexas continues to cultivate new and effective models in working effectively with the full spectrum of political perspectives and full range of community, and statewide stakeholders.
In 2009, the Alliance for Biking & Walking launched an annual awards program recognizing individuals and organizations that exemplify excellence in the bicycle and pedestrian movement.
