This year’s theme will be “The Bike Racks of Richardson”.

Bike Friendly Richardson is working with the City of Richardson to gather data on the current inventory of available bicycle parking throughout the city. We thought this would be a fun way to involve the bike community and collect valuable information that will help make our city more bike friendly.
