|The Pegasus has a plan.|
A few months ago I went on a little ride from Downtown Dallas to City Hall (a REALLY short ride if you know the area!). And while it wasn't focussed on the mileage it was good to showcase what the city known for it's horrible driving is doing to become more Bike Friendly.
So I was excited when I heard that the amazing (and amazingly organized) guys at Bike Friendly Oak Cliff were at it again!
Dallas is at a tipping point of sorts. It's a city which likes to be the best and have the best and it's learning that cycling is now cool, and that more people will move to the city if it were only to embrace not only the sport but bikes as a transportation alternative.
