Join the Memorial Ride for Greg and Alex Bruehler

BikeNews; Community

Greg and Alex BruehlerBoerne City Hall to St. John's Lutheran Church
5:45 p.m., October 6, 2009

Bicyclists from the San Antonio area are invited to participate in a slow, two-mile bike ride to the memorial service for Greg and Alex Bruehler. It is a way for San Antonio-area cyclists to pay their respects to the family of two fellow cyclists that were killed last week in the San Antonio area.

Cyclists will gather at the Boerne City Hall at 5:45 PM on Tuesday, October 6th. At 6:15 PM the group will ride to St. John's Lutheran Church.

The group will stand, silently holding their helmets, as an honor guard across from the church as Greg and Alex's friends and family arrive for the service. The vigil will break up about five minutes after the service begins.

Ride departs from Boerne City Hall
402 E. Blanco Road

Join International Bike and Walk to School Day!

BikeNews; Education Fund

International Bike and Walk to School day is Wednesday, October 7, 2009! This is a special day to promote safe walking and bicycling throughout the year. If you are interested in organizing such an event at a school of your choice, the Bike and Walk to School Month section of our website provides you the information and tools on how to have a successful event.

The "Frequently Asked Questions" section is especially helpful. This section has all the tools you need to put on the event: Flyers, Posters, School Newsletter and Loud Speaker Announcements, Bike Safety Handouts, Team Leader Invitation and Checklist and FUNdamental Activities to make the day exciting.

So far 70 Texas schools have signed on to the Safe Routes to School National Center website, which is a central resource for information.

If it is too late for you to make plans for October, keep in mind that the third Friday in May is Texas Bike and Walk to School Day. You can read up on what others have done and plan now for your event.

BikeTexas Attends Safe Routes to School Annual Conference

BikeNews; Education Fund

Doug Ballew, City of Austin Safe Routes to School Coordinator - 2009 National Safe Routes to School Conference - Portland, OregonDuring 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.

BikeTexas Annual Meeting Wrap-Up

BikeNews; Member News

2009 Annual Membership Meeting

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.
