Just got word there is a new Bike Friendly up north in Mckinney.  It’s great seeing bicycle advocacy spread!

Here’s their mission:

Welcome to Bike Friendly McKinney! This blog is intended to help communicate current events and all things bicycle to the 2-wheel residents of McKinney, Texas. We invite everyone to participate – if you have an event coming up that is bicycle oriented (Church function, scout event, high-school fundraiser) let us know. If you are a prolific writer and would like to help create news blogs or cover events, contact us and we’ll arrange for you to be a regular contributor.

They’re also into Fixing Disconnected Neighborhoods and looking to get local support for the McKinney on-street bike plan!  Nice work you guys and welcome to the Bike Friendly Family!

On a similar note that we missed posting to our website, Plano recently passed a Safe Passing ordinance within their city limits!  My home town has always been a great place to ride trails and now the streets are getting safer as well, nice work Warren Casteel and the rest of the folks who’ve worked for years on bicycle advocacy in Plano and beyond.
