Got together this past Thursday with a fellow cyclist who lives a mile down the road from me. We’re both lucky enough to live very close by to canal systems here in South Texas, so we decided to go on one of our usual canal rides to UTPA. The ride is about 40 minutes of steady canal biking with a quick pedal here and there to cross busy roads. Once you’ve hit the area between 23rd St. and McColl Road you’re in paradise. Oh, and the canals have a reputation to show you something new and cool every time. So yeah.
The Edinburg Police did a great job explaining the rules of the road to the children at the October 1st Bike Rodeo. They used visual aids, they asked the children questions, and they explained the skills they needed to bike safely. At each station, the officers and volunteers were patient and engaging, making sure every child was able to complete the course. The kids were having so much fun they didn’t want to get off the bikes the city had provided for them to do the course. Thank you City of Edinburg and Edinburg PD for a fantastic event.
Saw these bikes parked outside of La Pesca over on 107 a few days go. Two bikes and a child’s trailer = AWESOME.
I see this bike quite often outside that vintage shop on 107. I finally had a chance to stop and take a picture of it. I’d bet that it belongs to someone who works there.
Chief Castaneda and Assistant Chief de la Garza riding their bikes. They rode from the police department to city hall for the event. This is a step in the right direction.
Wrenching on the road? Yeah, we can do that.
