To Edgefield and Beyond!

Yesterday I discovered my new favorite bicycle route! As a cyclist, I often struggle to find a safe, north and south bike route that allows access to all areas of Oak Cliff. Most of the north-south through-ways in Oak Cliff are very hilly, have high speed traffic and are not exactly what I would call […]

There’s been talk of plans for a roundabout in our fair neighborhood. Namely at the juncture where Sylvan splits into two one-way streets a half-block apart, Tyler and Polk. It’s part of the plan to convert those one-way streets to two-way. The roundabout would go right near the intersection with W Canty St, one of […]

A bicycle changed my life. Why not Dallas? I started riding out of necessity. I had just moved back from Mexico and didn’t have a car. There was the anticipated benefit of physical activity but also unexpected advantages. Bicycles are lady magnets. They swoon, “Oh, he CARES about the environment.” Sorry to burst your bubble, […]

Making a New Year’s Resolution is easy, sticking to it is something totally different. So we decided to share our goals for 2015, that way we can hold ourselves accountable. Below is what we would like to accomplish here in Oak Cliff over the next year. 1. Implement a Productive Network of Bike Share Stations […]

The Wonderful Katy Trail!

Let’s go for a bike ride over the river and through the woods! This time of year bicycles magically appear under the Christmas Tree or near the Hanukkah Menorah, so let’s break out the ol’ 10 Speed and revive the holiday spirit! One of my most useful bike routes around Dallas is from Oak Cliff […]

Oak Cliff is my favorite place to ride, which may sound odd based on its reputation as the rough side of town, but I stand by it. Oak Cliff rivals the most scenic parts of town. The hills on Colorado Blvd through Kessler Park and around Stevens Park are second to none. The history and […]

The efforts of those of us who call themselves “bike advocates” in Dallas can commonly feel like fruitless labor. We too-often find ourselves on the wrong end of the awards list when it comes to surveys, polls, and quality-of-infrastructure lists anytime we pick up a magazine or click on a Facebook link. It should reasonably […]
