Pics From Today’s BFOC – On the Trail of Lee Harvey Oswald’s Footsteps Ride

with one comment

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.

Here are some pics. Click here or on any of the images to see the entire set.

I took a spin with the BFOC group today to tour the community gardens of Oak Cliff on their Spring Has Sprung Ride. The ride was a bit hot, but the stops were interesting and a bit inspirational.

leave a comment »

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.

Here are some pics. Click here or on any of the images to see the rest.

BFOC Santa Ride Follow Up

with 2 comments

I attended Bike Friendly Oak Cliff‘s Santa Ride Yesterday and had a blast. The crowd was huge with everybody and their bikes decked out in holiday flair.

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.

Also, don’t forget about Bike Friendly Oak Cliff‘s Santa Ride. It’s starts at 2:30 pm at the Main Street Garden Park. I’ll see you there.
