Cherryhurst Bikes! to Celebrate Cycling @ Cherryhust Park | Houston | Texas | United States

HOUSTON, TX 8/23/13 – Cherryhurst Bikes!, a community cycling showcase, invites local organizations, businesses, and neighbors to celebrate cycling on Saturday, 9/21/13 from 9 am to noon at Cherryhust Park  at 1700 Missouri.

###

What can you do on a bicycle?  Can you ride a bike to work or school, run errands with the family, or haul cargo? Would you like to learn how to use a bike in these ways and at the same time save on fuel, be healthier, and help make our air healthier, too? On Saturday, September 21,  bring the whole family to Cherryhurst Park in Montrose to celebrate all that we can do on a bicycle.  All are welcome to attend, both regular bicycle riders and riders-to-be.

 

Free and open to the public, the event will begin at 9 am.  Among the events planned:

  • Bicycle “Show & Shine” (with prizes!)
  • Bike decorating for kids of all ages
  • Safety, repair, & new rider classes
  • Bike & Helmet Checks
  • Amazing cargo bikes
  • Experts to offer advice and guidance
  • New product demonstrations for city cycling

 

Enjoy free food and drink while visiting with 26+ community organizations and bike shops, and stroll (or roll!) over to the FrankenBike bicycle-themed swap meet at Anvil, on 1424 Westheimer.

 

Please visit www.cherryhurstbikes.org for more information and to register your bicycle for the show.

Speakers:

Larry Soward
Larry Soward retired from a 35-year career in Texas state government last year at the end of his six-year term as a commissioner at the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Overseeing the TCEQ was just one of several top positions he held over the years. He is helped Air Alliance Houston and its allies prepare recommendations about the TCEQ for the state’s Sunset Advisory Commission. Their aim: Make the TCEQ tougher on polluters. The Sunset panel is reviewed TCEQ operations in advance of the Legislature’s scrutiny and potential reform of the agency in 2011. He now holds the position of Board Chair for Air Alliance Houston.
Brian Butler
California native Brian Butler was born in Los Angeles, CA, went to high school in San Diego,CA and attended University of California at Berkeley for his undergraduate degree. After living in Costa Rica for over a year he then went on to get his Masters in Social Work at Howard University in Washington, DC. He now proudly works as a Community Outreach Coordinator for Air Alliance Houston and the Healthy Port Communities Coalition. He is also a member of the Port of Houston Authority Chairman’s Citizens’ Advisory Council.

The Idea
Houston Tomorrow, Air Alliance Houston, Citizens’ Transportation Coalition, Social Agency Lab, CNU Houston, and BetterHouston all agree that Houstonians can build a better Houston today by thinking about the Houston we may inherit in 2040 and the Houston we want in 2040. Each happy hour will include time for networking and socializing, a topical speaker who will give an informational presentation on Houston urbanism, transportation planning, culture, environment, and more, and a visionary speaker who will give their “My Houston 2040” talk:

– What do you think Houston will be like in 2040?
– What do you want Houston to be like in 2040?
– What do you want us to do to make Houston like you want it to be in 2040?
