It all started with Copenhagen Cycle Chic, with an eye toward urban cycling and style.
As Dallas aligns itself with the cycle chic movement, we set ourselves apart. Dallas embraces its funky southern flair, its uptight respect for red tape, and the rebellious entrepreneurial spirit that’s made this region great.
We come together to celebrate this Spring 2011 as area cities adopt and update their Bicycle Master Plans, and together we begin to envision how our hometowns are becoming cycle-friendly cities.
Dallas Cycle Chic Week April 9th – 17th
12pm-6pm Be counted in the 2011 Cyclist Census and be entered to represent as the new Face of Biking in Dallas. We want to see – who are Dallas cyclists? Young, old, students, parents, business professionals, entrepreneurs, athletes, and bike messengers – come tell us what inspires you to cycle, and be entered to become the new Face of Cycling in Dallas. We want to see you and your personal cycling style.
Find your closest location where photographers will be capturing the unique style of the people who ride their bikes around our town. Also, check with your local Bike Friendly neighborhood group to see if they’ve organized a ride to your photo spot.
