Iron Riders Dallas Cycling Coalition, along with the Middleton Family attended the City of Grand Prairie Parks and Services to present a proposal to begin the application process of making Grand Prairie, a formal Bicycle Friendly Community via League of American Bicyclists. Currently only 6 cities in Texas have achieved this status: Austin, Fort Worth, Frisco, Houston, Plano and Richardson.
Sheryl Yvonne, President of Iron Riders Dallas Cycling Club and Coalition Member Tekisha Slack spoke on the points listed below; as well as, a few others:
*Calvin Middleton's Story; *Newly formed Iron Riders Dallas Cycling Coalition's mission; *Establishing a Bike Friendly Community; *Safe passing laws; *Three (3) foot passing law.
Iron Riders Dallas Cycling Club & Iron Riders Dallas Cycling Coalition would like to give a huge THANKS to the City of Grand Prairie - Municipal Government for hosting IRDCC and hearing our proposal. In addition, we would like to thank Grand Prairie Police's Bicycle Patrol Unit for coming out in support.
Last and surely not least, an even bigger THANK YOU to the Middleton family for their attendance and support.
