Looking for some weekend reading? Look no further than these links we thought were worth sharing this week:
New Year Motivation:
More like inspiration: John Estrada’s (of Brownsville) journey to health began with a bike.
And another for good measure: Exercise may well be the fountain of youth.
From around Texas:
Bad news in Donna– two teens on bikes were hit by an SUV earlier this week.
It’s been quite a week for bicycle-related editorials, as the Houston Chronicle calls for good street design to facilitate active transportation, and the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal says the city being more bike-friendly would be a good thing.
Meanwhile, in North Texas: Denton hired a new bike and pedestrian coordinator! Welcome to Texas, Ms. Anderson!
And a quick roundup of good news from Houston:
- UH students designed a new bike specifically for Houston
- More of the White Oak Bayou trail is now open
- And Michael Payne, Executive Director of BikeHouston, went on to KPFT radio this morning to talk about Houston’s Bicycle Master Plan with the Open Journal hosts and Patrick from the City of Houston. Link will take you to the archive page: scroll down to “Open Journal” for January 9 & click play. The bicycle segment begins at 25:00.
Have a great weekend!
