Pics From The BFOC Lee Harvey Ride

Posted in Bicycle Events by dickdavid on October 17, 2010

I took the DART Red Line to downtown Dallas to take part in Bike Friendly Oak Cliff’s On The Trail Of Lee Harvey Oswald’s Footsteps Ride.  It was a beautiful day so it was a huge turnout. Jason Roberts and the group from BFOC were great tour guides with lots of great information about those earlier days in Dallas. It was cool to put all those things I’ve read about in context with the actual locations.

Here are some pics. Click here or on any of the images to see the entire set.

BFOC’s Jason Roberts In The Latest Issue Of Bicycle Times

Posted in Advocacy, Bike Friendly by dickdavid on August 29, 2010

I was flipping through my new issue of Bicycle Times Magazine and ran across an interesting article about advocacy, written by Bruce Ebert. The article talks about some of the efforts for change in automobile heavy, suburban sprawl type cities like Dallas. Bike Friendly Oak Cliff gets mentioned and Jason Roberts gets quoted. I won’t go too deeply into the article, but it was nice to read about how the efforts of local cyclists are getting recognized in a national magazine. Way to go, BFOC!

I took a spin with the BFOC group today to tour the community gardens of Oak Cliff on their Spring Has Sprung Ride. The ride was a bit hot, but the stops were interesting and a bit inspirational.

Pics From The BFOC Love Your Lane Bike Ride

Posted in Bicycle Events by dickdavid on February 15, 2010

Although it was extremely cold and we seemed to be against the wind the whole way, I had a great time riding with the Bike Friendly Oak Cliff Group yesterday at their Love Your Lane Valentine’s Day Ride. This group wasn’t as large as some of their other group rides, but the folks were just as awesome.

Here are some pics. Click here or on any of the images to see the rest.
