Looking for some weekend reading? Look no further than these links we thought were worth sharing this week:
International Walk to School Day is coming! Do you have your BikePedEd materials ready to distribute? Order by September 29 within Texas or September 22 elsewhere in the U.S. to receive your delivery by the big day!
The 2016 Texas Trails and Active Transportation Conference will be here before we know it. Do you have expertise to share? Submit your speaker proposal today.
Check out the social media buzz around VIVA! Streets! It was a great day in Austin. Such a great day, in fact, that a couple of folks left their keys behind. Are you key-free after VIVA! Streets? Call 512-476-7433, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or come by!
From around Texas:
It’s PARK(ing) Day! Is your city participating? We’re looking forward to seeing what Dallas comes up with this year. Also check out this fun idea from Bolivia!
A Texas 3-year-old is thought to be the youngest ever diagnosed with Type II diabetes, adding another reason for Texas to have safe streets and neighborhoods for active transportation. (BTW: the link is to a British newspaper; one stone is 14 pounds. 5.5 stone = 77 lbs)
Fun but serious question from Transporation for America: What if we labeled unwalkable neighborhoods like we do cigarettes?
Want to cross the street? Why hit a button when you can fistbump?
Amtrak keeps moving forward in making it easier to bike and ride. Here’s hoping it continues!
Have a great weekend!
