According to this story in the Houston Chronicle Houston Metro will soon have bike racks installed on 800 vehicles by the end of 2007. Now will bus riders and bikes mix?
Yesterday’s Houston Chronicle offered three articles covering special interest aspects of the massive BP MS150 Houston to Austin ride. The links:
Driving to work this morning there is an electronic sign on the edge of I-10 west warning motorists that cyclists will be on the road.
Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable ride to all the riders and volunteers.
from the Midland Reporter-Telegram
Just when you thought age was an excuse to quit riding Peter Richards shows up. Mr. Richards is celebrating 50 years since graduating from MIT by cycling across the US. His son lives in the Midland area and is the reason he changed his route from the one he rode in 1997.
from the Navasota Examiner
Navasota was recently reminded that age doesn’t mean a thing when 27 ladies between the ages of 51 and 70-something stopped in town for a rest day while on the WomanTours cross country bicycle tour.
While the ladies’ main reason for biking is to raise money for breast cancer, the 3,096-mile trip also helps promote health, self-empowerment and personal growth.
