Looking for some weekend reading? Look no further than these links we thought were worth sharing this week:
We have a winner! Check out the Texas winners of the Saris National 5th Grade Poster Contest.
We have another winner! Cal Restivo of Burleson won the Annual Membership Bike Giveaway. Cal is a monthly sustaining member, making Texas a great place to ride a bike! We’ll be sure to share photos of Cal’s new ride.
It’s a great week for winners– Texas A&M is the third Bicycle Friendly University in Texas.
Speaking of winners, you won! The U.S. House passed a transportation bill yesterday without the damaging amendments.
From around Texas:
Speaking of rained out events, HTX BikeFest has been rescheduled to next month (originally scheduled for this weekend).
And speaking of Houston, check out BikeHouston’s excellent work to reach all people who ride bikes.
Somehow, this article manages to mention driver safety and dashboard entertainment systems within a few sentences of each other. No mention of safety if you’re outside this car.
Oakland is testing out a super sharrow. (You have to bring your own super suit, though.)
And in news that made our office manager shriek, “Hey, I’ve been there!” when she saw the accompanying picture, check out this article about Glasgow’s (Scotland) new separated bikeway.
Have a great weekend!
