From around Texas:
People who ride bikes around Texas have had our eyes on the Margaret Mayer trial in Houston this week. Mayer was found guilty of failing to stop and render aid after striking Chelsea Norman, who was riding her bike home from work, last December. Ms. Norman died four days later. Mayer has been sentenced to 15 years in prison. Read the news article from yesterday’s sentencing here.
Dallas has just installed parking meters next to a bike lane, leading to frustration, consternation, and other -ations for people who ride bikes. Here’s hoping they get that fixed, STAT.
Speaking of Dallas, they had a bit of a fog event a couple days ago. (This is nothing to do with bikes. We just think it’s pretty amazing.)
“MAMIL” (middle-aged man in lycra) has been added to the Oxford English Dictionary. You’re on your own for deciding whether or not to be happy about this.
And finally… will it snow for you on Christmas? (In Texas… probably not. Sorry.)
Have a great weekend!
