The First Annual Great State Fair of Texas Group Ride: Friday October 1, 2010

Submitted by on September 7, 2010 – 11:33 pm21 Comments


This is an invitation to anyone in the North Texas area that loves both bicycle commuting and the Great State Fair of Texas: we’re going to ride our bikes to the State Fair of  Texas this year. We’re doing it on Friday, October 1, 2010. That day happens to be the birthdate of Mr. Justin Husman, a contributor to this site and avid bike commuter. So we’ll be buying that young man a Fletcher’s Corny Dog for sure!

Here is the plan so far: I’m going to meet Justin at the Mockingbird DART station at approximately 10:00 a.m. on that Friday, October 1, 2010. We will be on our bicycles. I’ll be coming from East Dallas on the train from the White Rock Station, he’ll be rocking in from points north. We will proceed from the Mockingbird Station across Highway 75/Central Expy. to the northern end of the Katy Trail. We will proceed southbound on the lovely Katy Trail to downtown Big D. We will coordinate our ride as best we can with folks that want to come in from Cowtown on the TRE, and I will post more precise times as I review their schedule. We will take a break in Dealey Plaza, which is only several blocks north from the Union Station end of the TRE line so that folks can join us there.

We will then head down to the Exposition Park area and either have a drink with the good folks at the Amsterdam Coffee House and Lounge (Hello, Sheldon Hubbard!) or the Meridian Room (greetings, Mr. Bricker!). Then on to the Fair!

Who is up for this great event?
