BikeTexas and Adventure Cycling Association have joined forces to host Adventure Cycling Association’s executive director, Jim Sayer, on a whirlwind visit to Texas (December 6 – 12), with stops in Houston, Fort Worth, Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin.
Sayer will travel around the state, sharing the latest news on bicycle travel and adventures in North America (and perhaps beyond!) and looking to the year ahead, with new routes, trips, and policy and outreach initiatives to improve bicycling and bike travel in the US. Plus, BikeTexas executive director Robin Stallings will provide a sneak preview of the upcoming state legislative session as well as an update on the Texas Bicycle Tourism Trail network, and how it relates to the U.S. Bicycle Route System effort led by Adventure Cycling.
There will also be time for participants to share their thoughts, ideas, and stories at these events, which are free and open to the public.
Adventure Cycling Association is the largest membership cycling organization in North America with over 44,000 members. Established in 1973, Adventure Cycling has mapped more than 40,000 miles of cycling routes, leads more than forty-five guided cycling tours each year, and advocates for improvements in cycling infrastructure nationwide.
Please join BikeTexas and Adventure Cycling for one of these fun-filled evenings. If you plan to attend, please RSVP by emailing Sarah Raz, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling her at 800-755-2453 x210.
