Today is the OFFICIAL launch of Bike Friendly Richardson. With an already successful ‘soft’ launch, we already have almost 90 members on Facebook, not to mention a pretty great turnout for our inaugural ride on Black Friday. We’re already thinking about our next ride, with many more events to come.
In case you haven’t been following the blog until now, we have modeled ourselves after Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, a great bicycle advocacy group that started in Dallas. Feeling a need for non-sport representation in the north Dallas neighborhoods, we decided to continue their efforts in Richardson – with hopes that the momentum of bicycle awareness continues throughout the Metroplex. Although modeled after BFOC, we hope to grow into our own community and become a platform for safe and fun riding with a local perspective.
Please visit our site often to keep track of any progress made in our town. You can also join our Facebook group, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to the site by RSS or email (see right). We hope to become a valuable resource for anybody wanting to ride their bicycles around Richardson.
