Keep An Eye Out For A Hard Copy Of The March 2012 Far North Dallas Advocate

leave a comment »

As we stated in this post, Suburban Assault and Biking In Dallas were mentioned in a local magazine, the Far North Dallas Advocate. It actually made it to print in their March 2012 issue. Unfortunately, since this is the last day of the month, most of those issues are gone or replaced with April issues. So, keep an eye out for the March 2012 issue, and grab a few.

Fortunately, if you miss it, you can download a digital copy here. Or, you can always read Emily Toman‘s online article here.

Suburban Assault Mentioned In The Far North Dallas Advocate

with 3 comments

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Far North Dallas Advocate columnist,  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.
