Holy crap!

Texas is taking nationals by storm with four podiums so far. Fred “Captain America” Schmid took second in the 80+ and Christina Gokey-Smith took the same in women 40-44 with Catherine Moore in third, same race.

I would have guessed those ladies to be in their late 20s, but that’s just me.

Rolando Roman – 61/88 SS
Ben Cross – 77/101 Men’s Non-champ 30-44
Chris Carlson – 22/103 Men’s Non-champ 45-99

Northeast Texas Trail
by Bruce Moore
A Piecewise Adventure on the Northeast Texas Trail (aka Chaparral Trail)
13 miles (21 km) so far after 9 days from December 26, 2013 to ???
Segment 1–Farmersville, TX to Celeste, TX: Leaving the City


Thursday December 26, 2013, 13 miles (21 km) – Total so far: 13 miles (21 km)
Kristin and I met Kristin’s friend Liz at the Chamber of Commerce in Farmersville, where we talked to Lisa about the trail and tried to figure out if there was a place in Celeste or Wolfe City to drop a car so we could do a one-way ride. We ended up deciding that Kristin and Liz would ride part way out and then come back to Farmersville, while I would go on and explore the trail out to Wolfe City. Lisa printed out a copy of the services directory that the Northeast Texas Trail Coalition has put together to make trip planning a little easier. The list of services can be found here or look for the “Comprehensive Ammenities Guide” on the http://northeasttexastrail.org web site.
We drove the 100 yards from the Chamber to the trail head–it would have been just as easy to park the cars at the Chamber, but we didn’t know that at the time. After unloading bikes and getting bundled up for the 40 degree temperature, we headed out on the great concrete section of the trail that leaves Farmersville. The concrete runs for a couple of miles and then crushed stone for a few more miles.
It had rained about a week before and with cold temperatures, the crushed stone was still a little mushy…not easy on a recumbent trike. Kristin and Liz turned back with plans to meet me in Wolfe City (22 miles) in mid afternoon.
I kept on and soon found the end of the improved section as I crossed into Hunt County from Collin County–the crushed stone gave way to an unimproved two-track with some mud left over from the rain a few days ago.
I soon met up with a family of seven (mom, dad, four girls and a boy) that was hiking the trail over the holidays. They had read about it in a Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine article and decided that it sounded like a fun Christmas vacation adventure. The father had a very detailed plan with water locations and…

Texas Bicycling Daily News Roundup November 30th

Year of the bike
Cycling fans had much to celebrate over the past year, we’re hoping for more.
www.chron.com

We’re not at the end yet, but it looks like 2013 was Houston’s year of the bicycle. Cyclists, alternative transit lovers and health advocates have had a lot of celebrate, and even more to anticipate for 2014.
The B-Cycle bicycle rental system expanded from three stations to 27, with a network that stretches out of downtown and into surrounding neighborhoods. The ridership numbers show that stations in parks have become a regular weekend destination, and the stations near mixed-use apartment complexes get high ridership during weekday commutes.
The city should follow this success in the next rollout, with stations at parks, college campuses and…

Austin Bike Explorers

Project Description
The goal of the Austin Bike Explorers project is to begin to develop youths into well-rounded lifestyle and recreational cyclists. Our aim is to create cyclists who have the skills and ability to not only use their bicycle for fun and recreation but to develop the qualities needed to use it safely for transportation and to teach others to do so as well. Active transportation can also help fight obesity by making the exercise part of an activity which can rather than just exercising which can feel like a chore. Encouraging bicycle transportation also has a beneficial impact on the environment in that it reduces carbon emissions produced by motor vehicles, resulting in improved air quality and reduced resource utilization.

The program is built on top of Cycle Academy material which is a structured educational program geared toward youth cyclists concentrating on bicycle riding, safety, and maintenance skills. It focuses on learning by doing, self-sufficiency, developing a healthy lifestyle by integrating bicycling into daily activities, and community service. The curriculum is split into…


Dallas Wants to Build a $20-Million Trail From White Rock to I-20 (Video)
By Eric Nicholson        bicycleaustin.info
Video Here

Right now, Dallas has right around 100 miles of hike and bike trails and counting. That’s impressive. Less so is their arrangement. They are, with a few notable exceptions, disconnected, less a cohesive network than a collection of self-contained pathways from nowhere to nowhere.
The city of Dallas and the Trinity Trust want to change that, and they want to do it in a big way. On Monday, the City Council’s transportation committee will be briefed on the Trinity Forest Spine Trail, a massive, $20-million effort stretching 17.5 miles from White Rock Lake to Interstate 20 and…
