During the hottest August on record for many Texas cities, four Texans were happy to beat the heat at the National Safe Routes to School Conference in Portland, Oregon - August 19th and 20th. Making the trip were Laura King, representing Austin Cycling Association; Carol Campa, TxDOT Safe Routes to School Coordinator; Doug Ballew, Safe Routes to School Coordinator for the City of Austin; and Robin Stallings, Executive Director of BikeTexas.Although Portlanders were moaning about the 90 degree days, the Texas contingent was loving it! The photo shows Doug Ballew taking a first hand look at the excellent multi-use trail facilities that Portland is rightly renowned for. Throughout Portland, cyclists of all ages were everywhere. Whole families were biking together where ever you looked.
The BikeTexas Annual Membership Meeting took place on Saturday, September 12 from 4-5 pm. We welcomed aboard two new board members, Iris Stagner of Mineral Wells and Andy Hollinger of Bedford, and gave a full report on the progress and challenges of the past year, including our legislative successes (SB 161 and SB 2041) and disappointments (the veto of the Safe Passing Bill). We were pleased to report on our growing membership and the success of the monthly member program. After the meeting ended, those of us in Austin stayed to chat and catch up over beer and snacks. Thanks to all the members that participated either in person or via the web conference.
We are half way to our goal of 10,000 Texans
signing the BikeTexas Safe Passing petition,
and we need your help to keep the momentum going!
If you haven't signed it already, please take a moment and do so now.
Equally important, please forward the link to the petition
to family and friends and ask them to sign.
We need to let our elected officials know that
cyclists support Safe Passing, and we vote!
Kim Fredenberg of Dallas!
Congratulations to Kim for winning our membership drive raffle for the 2010 Trek 1.2 road bike.
Thanks to Texas Trek Dealers for donating the awesome bike. The bicycle drawing is a great way to reward cyclists who support our advocacy work and we really appreciate Trek and their Texas Dealers for their continued and steadfast support.
As you know if you attended the ride, this year at Hotter'n Hell it was only hot as heck, with the high temperature on Saturday in the low to mid-nineties. It was quite a relief to the riders, including the two BikeTexas staff who rode.
In addition to the weather, the event was a great success for BikeTexas. We gathered hundreds of signatures for our Safe Passing Petition, and beat last year's numbers of new and renewing members! People were fired up about the Governor's veto of the Safe Passing legislation and were glad to be able to do something about it.
Thanks to all the members who came by the BikeTexas booth to join, renew or just say hi - we love getting to put faces with our members' names. Thank you for the support, and we'll see you next year at HHH!
