We’ve been out on our proper tour for more than a week now and have begun the extensive leg of our tour in Texas.
So far everything is big here, including the crowds and the enthusiasm. We had the mayor of Amarillo come out last night along with some council members and they all participated in the event and the discussions surrounding Groundswells, places where people are looking beyond traditional roles of advocacy and applying the principles of social justice to build successful bicycling meccas.
The conversations last night were a great reminder of why we put together this new touring program: To look beyond the usual guilt for not bicycling more and to challenge the thinking that got us there and look at ways to produce greater results. We have eight more shows in Texas over the next two weeks and we are excited for the conversations that they bring.
Here’s some photos from our first week on the road:
