Suburban Assault Mentioned In The Far North Dallas Advocate
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Far North Dallas Advocate columnist, Emily Toman to talk about biking in north Dallas. She was collecting perspectives from a few different types of cyclists to get a broad scope of local bicycling. I’m afraid I might have used up my time by rambling on about my love for riding.
I have to admit that I’ve been in such an odd flux with my view of cycling advocacy, that it was really hard to lock down a definite opinion about the topic. I feared that I might have come off as a bit random or, perhaps, vague.
From these interviews, she wrote an article called The Future Of Biking In Far North Dallas. If you like cycling in Dallas, you should take a moment and read it.
Included in the article were fellow north Dallas cyclists including Chris Curnutt with BikingInDallas and vehicular cyclist Richard Wharton. The article does a great job at articulating the struggles of bicycle advocacy in a city defined by urban sprawl. My takeaway is that a bike plan, which includes a better cycling infrastructure as well as rider education, can lead to a better cycling community in north Dallas.
