Yesterday, my local cycling group, Bike Friendly Richardson, was invited to have a table at the Cyclesomatic Bike Fair - hosted by Bike Friendly Oak Cliff. It started off a bit chilly, but it ended up being a great day.
Along with many booths and a huge crowd, there was a cyclocross race. I’d never seen one in person, so it was pretty exciting to watch.
There was also a bike powered smoothie station hosted by BikeDFW as well as representatives from Metroplex BMX, Pedal Power, Bicycles, Inc and ReGeared. Good Karma Kitchen was there with some tasty food and the youngsters in the crowd were entertained by a bounce house and fantastic face painting. If that wasn’t enough, there was a BMX Stunt show.

Tweed rides have been seen around the country as a great way to get the community dressed up and out for a fun bike ride. So, dig through the back of your closet, rummage through the attic or hit the local thrift store and find a way to participate in this entertaining event.

I took the DART Red Line to downtown Dallas to take part in Bike Friendly Oak Cliff’s On The Trail Of Lee Harvey Oswald’s Footsteps Ride. It was a beautiful day so it was a huge turnout. Jason Roberts and the group from BFOC were great tour guides with lots of great information about those earlier days in Dallas. It was cool to put all those things I’ve read about in context with the actual locations.

Our friends and the founders of the DFW Bike Friendly movement, Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, are having their second Cyclesomatic event. This year they’re packing all of the bike love into four days – October 14 – 17. Click over to the site to get more details.
I had a fun time taking the DART Red Line downtown and attending the BFOC Ninjas Vs. Pirates ride yesterday.

Although it was extremely cold and we seemed to be against the wind the whole way, I had a great time riding with the Bike Friendly Oak Cliff Group yesterday at their Love Your Lane Valentine’s Day Ride. This group wasn’t as large as some of their other group rides, but the folks were just as awesome.

Like with other BFOC rides, the pace was casual and the route manageable. It started in downtown Dallas at the new Main Street Garden Park. The route took us through Deep Ellum, back into downtown, then south past the Farmer’s Market. The group then headed into south Dallas, past Dallas Heritage Village and up South Lamar – back into downtown again. From there, we took the Houston Street Bridge into Oak Cliff for our rest stop on Bishop Street.
After some refreshments, the group headed back into downtown Dallas, and ended back at the Main Street Garden Park.

This is a great weekend for riding. There’ll be two awesome events happening in Dallas this weekend:
Pedallas is presenting their first alley cat called The Twenty. I believe all the racing slots are taken, but they’re inviting everybody to come down to watch and support the riders. It will kick off at 10:00 am at the Main Street Garden Park.
