BFR friend Howard sent us a link from Bike Friendly North Dallas. This Friday, there will be an official ribbon cutting ceremony for the completion of the Cottonwood Trail. If you weren’t aware, the Cottonwood Trail provides us a safe riding route into Dallas.

From their Facebook event page:

On Friday, May 20th at 10:30am there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the completion of the Cottonwood Trail at the DART Forest Lane transit station. If you can, arrive on on your bike! Riders should show up for media shots on the trail at around 10AM, and to perhaps stay after the press conference for shots of people getting on the train to “go to work” (May 20th is National Bike to Work Day). We are planning on having the cyclists ride up to the trailhead from the southeast and stop in front of the ribbon that will be strung across the trail, and listen to the speeches while standing with their bikes. Please spread the word!

DATE: Friday, May 20, 2011
TIME: 10 am
LOCATION: DART Forest Lane Station
