Cycle Chic, the “style over speed” movement formally comes to Dallas. Our friends over at Dallas Cycle Chic have organised a full week of cycling events. Most of the details can be found here and they have a Facebook page here. With a showcase of events, Dallas Cycle Chic is a celebration of 2011 as a key moment in Dallas for Cycling with the upcoming Dallas Bicycle Master Plan. The event will also carry out the first Dallas Cyclist Census, with photo locations around the city – so look sharp people! Here at BFKH, we will ride to many of these events, so watch this space, or check out our Facebook page for the latest information.

Here are some of the event details;
