In case you missed it: Some links we thought were worth sharing this week. Happy reading!
From around Texas:
And let’s make Texas safe for active lifestyles soon, to avoid any more of our schoolkids being hit by cars in crosswalks, like Paola in El Paso. Best wishes to Paola for a speedy recovery.
Of course, sometimes kids cross the street near school not in a crosswalk, and they should be safe from getting hit, too. Fingers crossed that this little guy in Lubbock bounces back to enjoy his winter break.
No Christmas tree yet? Here’s a step-by-step guide to getting one home by bike.
A fun post on what it’s like riding in different types of rain. (Pretty sure that we call all kinds “great” here in Texas.)
Public transportation use is on the rise. Good news for people who ride bikes and who can use a lift– most public buses in Texas can accommodate bikes!
And finally… Mary Lauran Hall, the communications director for the Alliance for Biking and Walking (and whose weekly biking & walking roundup inspired this very Friday feature), is moving on to another great adventure. We’ll miss Mary Lauran, but wish her all the best!
Have a great weekend!
