Dallas Is Taking Steps For Cyclists – Slowly

Ever since Dallas was listed as one of the country’s worst cities for cycling by Bicycle Magazine (twice), folks have been trying to change that. The new Dallas Bike Plan was a huge step forward, but the momentum has slipped a bit. Politics and the lack of money are part of the problem.

I am keeping an eye out for any bicycle updates around town, and I’m seeing some street markings and signage pop up in random locations. Dallas has also just passed a safe passing ordinance. Some say all this is nice, while others are saying it’s not enough.

I say, every little bit helps. Let’s keep the momentum going until Dallas can change that status.

  1. It is ironic to see this post after having made the one in the website link only last Thursday. Yes, it was 660AM. Yes, the anti-cyclist screed was worse than my post. No, the host did not actually incite violence against cyclists riding in Dallas, but he was on rather thin ice (IMO). The host’s initials; JDW. It certainly reinforces my thoughts that most cycling facilities are viewed in the most negative possible light from behind a lot of windshields.
