Bike to CH-2014 PosterAdvocacy is a principle foundation of our mission at Bike Friendly Oak Cliff.  More bike lanes are soon to come online in Oak Cliff and we need your presence to show the policy makers why more infrastructure, enforcement, programs, and laws need to be implemented to help make bicycles a part of our transportation system in Dallas. 
Scott Griggs is a founding member of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, and would like everyone to come to the annual Bike to City Hall event, now in it’s 6th year!  The newly formed Dallas Bicycle Coalition will receive a special recognition, and several council persons will be in attendance to show their support.  Spread the word to everyone in Dallas how much better our city will become with more bicycles on the road!

Bicycle Brewery Tour Wrap Up

October 13, 2014 § Leave a comment

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In our third edition, this month’s Bicycle Brewery Tour delivered all of the elements of a great social ride!  Excellent weather, unpredictable outcomes, and of course premium local craft beer.

The meet up location was changed to the western entrance of the new Continental St. Viaduct Park, which delivers a great way to access the new Trinity Skyline Trail and is a perfect route to the three best gateway districts in Dallas for the growing craft brewery industry:  The Design District, West Dallas, and Oak Cliff!

The Design District

Possibly ground central of craft beer in Dallas, award winners Community Brewing Co. and, Peticolas Brewing Co. are stallworth’s in the industry, and newcomer Noble Rey Brewing Co. all call it home.  Community has been there since the beginning of our tour back in February of 2013,  and then in October of 2013.

 

West Dallas

Four Corners is the sole occupant in the Trinity Groves development.  Definitely a quality pour for anyone looking for a quality beer.

 

Oak Cliff

Small Brew Pub isn’t even open yet, but has been on the tour in the past.  New to the tour this year, a non-beer participant Bishop Cider Co.  We look forward to next year, or possibly sooner!  Stay tuned….;)
