Looking for some weekend reading? Look no further than these links we thought were worth sharing this week:
Transportation policymaking continues at the US Capitol, and our partners at the League of American Bicyclists and Rails-to-Trails Conservancy are staying on top of any bills or amendments that would be bad for active transportation. The Emmer Amendment that was defeated on Tuesday night is one example of what we’re keeping an eye out for– if your rep voted against it, please take a moment to send a thank you email or tweet!
From around Texas:
We’re sorry to hear that we lost three people who were riding bikes in Texas this past week. Raul Alvarado Mascorro was killed outside of Mercedes, Gabino Carrizales was killed in Brownsville, and Brian Silva was killed in Austin. Our thoughts are with all three gentlemen’s families.
HUGE congratulations to Richardson, the fifth Bicycle Friendly Community in Texas! Richardson joined the list this week at the Bronze level.
Have a great weekend!
