A follow up to our Oak Cliff Earth Day wrap-up: Bike Friendly Oak Cliff was able to raise enough money to buy two bike racks from Reunion Arena for the price of scrap metal (since the racks would have been sold as such in the recent demolition process). One already has been installed at the Texas Theatre, and another will be installed at The Kessler School.
In other bike news, Dallas Bike Coordinator PM Summer managed to get in a jab at the Bike Friendly Oak Cliff folks on his blog, Cycle Dallas, calling the desire to put a cycle-track along Jefferson Boulevard "open season" on pedestrians. We touched on the back-and-forth between Summer and Bike Friendly Oak Cliff founder Jason Roberts last fall (Roberts subsequently posted a quote from Summer in his blog’s "notable" column, to show "what we’re up against"), and apparently the feud continues. As of now, Roberts hasn’t responded to the latest barb.
