Looking for some weekend reading? Look no further than these links we thought were worth sharing this week:
The 2016 Texas Trails and Active Transportation Conference is in the books, and what a great three days it was! Mark your calendar now for spring 2018–city to be announced soon. In the meantime, take a look back at three days of fun and learning in Houston.
Speaking of things that happened at TTAT: check out the news coverage of Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Wednesday address to the crowd.
Last week was a busy week in the world of bike advocacy– the National Bike Summit in D.C. was winding down right when TTAT was heating up. See news from the Texas delegation and others for Monday, day 1; Tuesday, day 2; and Wednesday, day 3.
And one other really cool thing happened last week–what was it? Oh, yeah, BikeTexas’ Fernando Martinez won the Alliance for Biking and Walking’s Advocate of the Year award.
Whew! That was a busy week. Now for one that didn’t happen last week, but is still crazy-exciting: Three Texas businesses are on the latest list of Bicycle Friendly Businesses from the League of American Bicyclists.
From around Texas:
Lots of great stuff is happening in El Paso (check out our event calendar!) including a presentation from Transit Center, “Recent Urban Transportation Innovations: What Can El Paso Learn from Portland, Denver, Charlotte, & New York?” happening Monday night. Don’t miss it!
One more from Houston (lots of love for our TTAT host city this week): some streets that are easily bikeable for the non-fearless crowd get a shoutout.
Have a great weekend!
