with 2 comments

Yesterday, I decided to join the Bike Friendly Knox-Henderson group and ride down to the first Dallas Cycle Sunday ride. After that, we got to check out the city’s latest Complete Streets initiative called Ross Avenue – Build A Better Boulevard.

The ride with the Knox-Henderson group started at the Pearl Cup and made it’s way down some nice back streets, including Swiss Avenue. It ended at the Main Street Garden Park, which was the starting point for Dallas’ first Cycle Sunday ride. The Dallas Cycle Sunday ride was nice loop around downtown, set up to celebrate the newly adapted Dallas Bike Plan.

Cycle Sunday ended at the Ross Avenue – Build A Better Boulevard event which was amazing.

Here are some pics. Click here to see the rest.

Introducing Bike Friendly Knox-Henderson

with 3 comments

We have more good news in the DFW area. Rolling off the success of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, another north Texas neighborhood has joined the ranks of local bicycle advocacy. We now have Bike Friendly Knox-Henderson, adding to the family which includes Bike DentonBike Friendly Richardson and the recently discussed Bike Friendly Lakewood. Who knows how many more of these will pop up?

Quite frankly, I’d love to see more advocacy in every metroplex neighborhood. If anything, it shows that there are folks in town that care about cycling and want Dallas to be a better place for riding.

BFKH is especially good news for me since it happens to represent one of my favorite areas in Dallas. Plus, it is intersected by the Katy Trail, which is a great connection to downtown.
