Bike Friendly Richardson

Please Welcome Bike Friendly Garland

Posted in Advocacy, Bike Friendly by dickdavid on August 21, 2012

Ever since we started up Bike Friendly Richardson (from the inspiration of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff), we had a vision that more communities in the DFW Metroplex would do the same. Several have – more actively than others – but none were our immediate neighbors like Plano, Addison, Carrollton, or Garland. Well, that has changed.

We are happy to announce that friend of BFR and fellow blogger, Jonathan Guzman with A Bicycle’s Point Of View, started up Bike Friendly Garland.

Let’s show BFG some support by joining their Facebook Page. Also, if you live and cycle in Garland, Jonathan would love some help getting their group launched. Volunteers are more than welcome.

    Thanks for the email. Please let me know if you have any rides and I will try to promote and ride myself.

    Bethel, we are holding our first official BFG ride Sunday, October 28th, at 8:00 AM. We’ll be riding from Windsurf Bay Park in far southeast Garland by the lake up to downtown. Hope to see you there!

    Very glad to see this. Of my commuting by bike friends in Garland, I lament the current state of trails and on-road facilities in Garland. Precisely none. I think BFG is going to be able to show a lot of success early, because starting from zero; anything is supreme progress!
