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.

Biking In Dallas Talks About The Dallas Trail Network

leave a comment »

If you haven’t already discovered the newest bike blog in the Metroplex, go check out Biking In Dallas. I’ve been following them on my RSS feed for a while and noticed that they’re taking on north Texas biking in full force. However, if you’re looking for spandex and carbon fiber, don’t bother. Biking in Dallas is just a couple of long-time Dallasites (one north, one east) who intend… to promote the enjoyment of exploring the City of Dallas and its’ surroundings by bicycle (read more). My kind of cycling.

Mike and Chris write some of the best articles that inspire me to ride more. Their latest is a great write up on the Dallas Trail Network. It details the state of our local cycling infrastructure and accounts for all types of cycling solutions. They even gave my home town, Richardson, a nice little nod for setting the standard for suburban cycling and commuting. Additionally, it truly is a great read.
