September 4, 2014 § 2 Comments

The announcement has been made public that among  the city of Dallas’ next bicycle infrastructure projects is  coming to the Sylvan/Tyler-Polk corridor from I-30 to Davis.  We were told at the Dallas Bicycle Coalition meeting yesterday evening that it should kick off within the next month or so.

Here’s the public announcement letter received by one of our Board members who lives within the public announcement area:

We appreciate the leadership of Scott Griggs who has helped bring more bicycling infrastructure to our neighborhood, our local bike shops, Oak Cliff Bicycle Company and Dallas Bike Works who sell and support city bicycling, and developers like Dave Spence for having the foresight to bring in more bicycle related businesses and encourage bicycling to his tenants businesses!

If you’d like to voice your appreciation about this new project, please email Scott Griggs at scott.griggs@dallascityhall.com or Jared White at jared.white@dallascityhall.com.

Bike to Work, May 16th, Oak Cliff Energizer Station, Jefferson St. Viaduct

May 6, 2014 § 1 Comment

PrintRiding your bicycle to work doesn’t always come easy, especially in Dallas, TX, however it’s been getting better and better as ridership is increasing and the city has been laying down on street infrastructure.  We even now have a legitimate Dallas Bicycle Task Force that meets tomorrow evening, 6pm at City Hall!

So, there are few excuses not to try a bicycle commute on National Bike to Work Day, May 16th.  Actually, May is Bike to Work month and next week is Bike to Work Week.  It’s never too early to try it out.  Here are the details:

 

Date: May 16th, 2014

Location: In the Jefferson St. Viaduct Cycletrack overlooking the Trinity River

Time:  6:30 AM – 9:00 PM

What You Get:  Free coffee from Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters, free breakfast tacos from BFOC, haul’n mass provided by Oak Cliff Cargo Bicycles, wrench’n provided by Oak Cliff Bicycle Co., a mariachi band greeting you as you climb the bridge, a balloon arch, and KIND and Cliff Bars from Bike DFW.  Encouragement, freedom from the car, happy faces, and the best damn group of bicycling advocates greeting you are all free as well!

smallplantebikeslogoGroup Ride:  If you feel more comfortable riding in a group, Tom Wilson’s Small Plant eBikes will be leading one from his shop in the Bishop Arts District across from Oddfellows.  The group leaves at 7:00 AM, meet up is 6:45 AM,  heading to the Oak Cliff Energizer Station.  Tom will even loan you a bicycle just for the group ride and back to the shop!
