Fort Worth Open Streets Sunday Oct 30th
I never post anything about Fort Worth here. Why, you ask? Because I can barely get my arms wrapped around the world of Dallas cycling; and besides we’re called Biking In Dallas not Biking Near Dallas or Biking Within an Hour of Dallas. But this post is an exception. First a little back story…
I was involved in a conversation recently between some folks from Fort Worth, Dallas and beyond. The subject was living in Fort Worth versus living in Dallas. The guy from Fort Worth was lamenting about how dreary life is over there and how he wished he had chosen to live in Dallas. In fact he advised us, “Fort Worth sucks”.
Don’t believe people from Fort Worth when they say they don’t like living there, it’s a scam to keep people from Dallas from moving in on their cozy, urban Shangri-La. I’m serious. It’s true, they want to keep the small town feel of their city all to themselves. Those clever panther people think they have us all fooled. Well I lived in Fort Worth ages ago so I know better.
The truth is Fort Worth is one of the best cities in Texas and they have the coolest hike and bike trail network called the Trinity Trail system which allows you to get to downtown from just about any part of the city.
And if you have any doubts that Fort Worth is not a full jug of awesomesauce just watch this film made by Fort Worthology that documents the Open Streets event from the 23rd (think of it as a Panther City Cyclovia):
The good news is Fort Worth has another Open Streets event planned for this Sunday, October 30th. Read more about that here and even more from this PDF announcement.
