Registration is Open for #TTAT2020–Don’t miss the Early Bird Rate
Register now to join us in San Antonio, March 25-27, 2020, at the Texas Trails and Active Transportation Conference. Encourage your local planners, engineers, elected officials, and other decision-makers to attend. One of the best things you can do to move the needle on active transportation in your town is reach out to your city council, county commission, or other elected officials, and invite them to accompany you to TTAT.
Are you part of a bike club or advocacy organization? Send a representative to TTAT to learn about best practices, hear great ideas from other Texas cities, and get inspired to push for better active transportation options back home. Register now to get the early bird rate.

Bike Giveaway Winner
Congratulations to Patrick Gerdemann of Lubbock, the winner of the 2019 bike giveaway!

May this be the start of many happy miles together. Ride on, Patrick!
Order BikePedEd Now!
The days are at their shortest, and when it’s dark out, you’ll need lots of lights. Check out our new rechargeable lights in our store, which attach quickly and easily to bikes, helmets, backpacks, pet collars, and everywhere else you might need a light. The red rear lights attach nicely to helmets and are as bright as most taillights–about 30 lumens!
Find them in our new web store, where you can also still find our small safety lights that you already know and love. Get steep discounts for large quantities. While you’re there, grab some activity books for your bike club, scout troop, or other youth group, and you’ll have a head start on stocking stuffers.
New BikeTexas Office
We’ve moved! BikeTexas has set up shop in our new digs at 506 Springdale Road. We’re still within an easy bike distance of the Capitol, so we can get there in a hurry when it’s time to talk to our elected officials about biking and walking in Texas. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and say hello!
