Week of Cycling Chic Dallas – Starts Today

Posted in Advocacy, Bicycle Events, Bike Change, Bike Friendly by dickdavid on April 9, 2011

There’s a global bike movement (started in Copenhagen – I think) that’s making its way to DFW. I’m sure most of you have heard of or read about Cycle Chic which is the culture of cycling in fashionable clothes – style over speed. Dallas Cycle Chic has come to Dallas and is launching with a Week of Cycling Chic.

From their site:

Dust off your bike and join the revolution! Bikes all over the city!  A whole week of ways for you to show your biking love in Dallas (and celebrate our newly updated Bicycle Master Plan!)

Represent your cycling style at our first ever Cyclist Census, see some great shots of biking in Dallas on display at Eno’s, come for happy hour at the Texas Theatre and see old classic “The Bicycle Thief”, vote for your favorite cyclist to be our Face of Biking in Dallas, race around town to win the Spring Poloride photo scavenger hunt, relax at Main Street Gardens watching “Peewee’s Big Adventure” on the lawn, then end the week learning to play Bike Polo and watching (or competing in!) the tournament.

It’s an action-packed week of bicycle love just for you, Dallas.

We’re glad this has started in DFW. Anything that brings in more cyclists to the area always makes us happy. Click here for event details and here for their Facebook page.
