A Week of Cycling Chic

A Week of Cycling Chic

Dallas Cycle Chic is organizing several events during April 9th-17th to celebrate the Dallas Bike Plan.  Click on the graphic to see the full details.

Dust off your bike and join the revolution! Bikes all over the city!  A whole week of ways for you to show your biking love in Dallas (and celebrate our newly updated Bicycle Master Plan!)

With or Without Spandex – Dallas Cycle Chic

Represent your cycling style at our first ever Cyclist Census, see some great shots of biking in Dallas on display at Eno’s, come for happy hour at the Texas Theatre and see old classic “The Bicycle Thief”, vote for your favorite cyclist to be our Face of Biking in Dallas, race around town to win the Spring Poloride photo scavenger hunt, relax at Main Street Gardens watching “Peewee’s Big Adventure” on the lawn, then end the week learning to play Bike Polo and watching (or competing in!) the tournament.

It’s an action-packed week of bicycle love just for you, Dallas.

And here is a break down of all the events going on that week:

Dallas Cycle Chic is celebrating the release of the updated City of Dallas Bicycle Master Plan in spring of 2011, as well as the development of bicycle infrastructure plans for other cities in the metroplex. We’re coordinating a week of Cycle Chic events to raise awareness of cycling, re-acquaint people with their beloved bicycles, and bring together the cycling community.

Cycling organizations, shops, and neighbors throughout Dallas and the region are invited to coordinate events to show support for the plan and promote cycling culture.
