The city of Dallas recently approved the updated Dallas Bike Plan, which includes trail improvements and incorporating bike lanes into Dallas streets. It could take some time to see the changes because the city doesn’t have the millions needed to put the plan in place. But even without a bicycling infrastructure, cyclists and motorists can still coexist. There are already many people in our neighborhood proving that it’s possible to get around without a car. Cycling enthusiasts are eager to get others on bikes, but there are still some who think bikes don’t belong on the road and that any money spent on a bike plan is wasted. Advocate photo editor Turk recently talked with local bike advocates and critics and gets both sides of the story for our cover story of the March 2012 Oak Cliff Advocate.
