BikeTexas is the only statewide organizationt that unites all Texans who want great places to walk and bike. BikeTexas works to promote bike-friendly policies and places in our great state and across the nation. The nationwide Safe Routes to School program, for example, began as the Matthew Brown Act in Texas in 2001.
Over the past 20 years, BikeTexas’ programs have resulted in over 200,000 Texas children per year learning safe walking and biking. Over 3000 Texas teachers are certified in the SafeCyclist curriculum, with even more poised to join their ranks in the coming months. In addition, BikeTexas puts on the KidsKup race series, which introduces hundreds of children each year to the love of mountain biking and the fun to be had in exercise.
The BIKE TEXAS MISSION is to advance bicycle access, safety and education in Texas. BikeTexas, formerly known as Texas Bicycle Coalition, was formed in 1991 to unify the voices of thousands of bicycle enthusiasts, the bicycle industry, Texas bicycle clubs and Texas-based bicycle rides and events. With the support of these members and community partners, BikeTexas seeks to develop and steward the future of bicycling in Texas and encourage bicycle use as a healthy and mainstream lifestyle and transportation choice.
BikeTexas works for you, to make sure that you are able to run errands, get to work, or just enjoy the outdoors, no matter how you –choose to get around!
