Riding 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

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!
Group 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!

Please see FAQs prepared by Staff regarding shared bike arrow markings or “sharrows” in Kidd Springs.
City staff are also in the process of developing a Bicycle Advisory Working Group of Dallas Citizen interested in promoting the City’s bicycle programs. This group, once developed, will help with items such as advocacy, outreach, education, and fundraising to help support the bicycle program. If this is something you might be interested in, please let me know and we can discuss what this group would do and what may be required of those serving on it.

This Saturday evening, the Fixed Touring guys will be hosting an Alley Kat race at Four Corners Brewing Co. If you’ve never been to an Alley Kat or don’t know what one is, read their description here, and see the event here:
On July 13 2013 Fixed Touring will embark upon a mission to provide the city of Dallas with a bicycle race like they have never seen!
Full sized bikes racing a compressed Alley Cat, full of obstacles, Challenges and Trivia.
What is the problem with bicycle racing as it is, you say? Well, touring races are very long and fairly uneventful not to mention hard to watch. Criteriums are easier to watch, but repetitive. The Alley-Cat — now there’s a race! However, it is probably the hardest to observe due to the sporadic and unpredictable nature. Solution: we are going to wrap an action packed Alley-Cat around the spectators. Watch as the bravest cyclists in town battle it out through stations and over obstacles to be the first victor of the Fixed Touring Mini-Cat.
Four Corners Brewing will be selling pints of delicious cold beer, and tours of the brewery will be available. And food trucks will be on site to provide the eats.
There will be a small $5 entry fee for those Racing with prizes going to the top finishers. Must bring your own bike and wear a Helmet.
We will also have NEW t-shirts on sale and FREE stickers.
Here’s what Fixed Touring is about:

Fixed Touring established in 2012 is a not for profit bicycle advocacy organization. Fixed Touring provides unique opportunities for Dallas/Fort Worth cyclists to increase bicycle skills, maintenance and route knowledge across the state while decreasing the amount of gears.
The goal of Fixed Touring is to promote and showcase reliable, self sufficient, and logical means to physical activity…1 gear & 1 bike at a time. Comprised of five officers and two members from a variety of backgrounds and professions, Fixed Touring is organized just as diverse as the areas we seek to serve.

Fixed Touring’s strategy is to influence participation in regular physical activity by associating it with sustainable transportation, promoting cycling awareness, reaching physical activity requirements, spending time with friends, having fun, and seeing the country on two wheels.
Fixed Touring will target riders/non-riders alike and a focus will be placed on developing cycling communities, enhancing cycling awareness, developing active transportation infrastructure and promoting community cycling events.
Fixed Touring seeks to improve citizen’s attitudes, self-efficacy and perception through a person-oriented and community-driven program, successfully implementing bicycle touring and transportation in conjunction with the recently passed Dallas Bike Plan, local business funding and community organization support.
