I want to thank everyone for making our City Council pedal so
successful, especially Amy and Jean Marie for lending bikes and to
those who were able to show up (despite the error in directions). I
think we impressed our elected representatives with the need for good
infrastructure and our interest in encouraging the city to make the
I'll write a thank you note (real letter) to our guests.
Two councilmembers, Chris Scotti and Lynn McIlhany, did not respond
to the invitation.
Ron Gay did (he was out of town), and wrote
I am committed to ensuring that we take care of our cycling
community with out [sic - our, I assume] transportation
projects. With proper planning we can
accommodate cyclists at the design stage and not have to go back later
and add on.
Ideas for next time:
- technical assistance for the new bikers if necessary (including leg clips)
- try to get the TV stations interested
(assume Eagle coverage will not be as good)
- invite the School Board
- try something in Bryan (or invite the Bryan city council to follow
our route to show what could be done)

I am starting my lab there at the vet school in June and was excited
to see the article on the bike ride you organized on the newspaper
web page. I bike commute here in Baltimore and hope to do so in CS
even though we are buying way down in Pebble Creek. I still have
seen more bike paths in CS than Baltimore, but I think they were
around campus. Is there a bike commute group there? I saw the bike
master plan on the town website... that will be great if it gets done.
I guess I will get sweatier there, hope I can find a place to shower on campus.
Looking forward to becoming an aggie and glad at least someone else
likes to bike there!
