National Bike Month is a success because of the countless, diverse local events organized by dedicated bicyclists in their communities, organizations and workplaces.

Fort Worth leads the pack in organizing fun and innovative programs during National Bike Month and year-round.

Rolling Town Halls

Grab your bike and bring your ideas for a better Fort Worth as Mayor Betsy Price begins a fresh season of Rolling Town Halls.

Thanks to today’s hectic and busy society, getting residents involved in charting the course for their city requires more creative approaches than the typical town hall meeting. Mayor Price implemented Rolling Town Halls to break the mold of that traditional, worn-out and sometimes boring town hall meeting with a casual — yet active — way for residents to connect with their elected leaders.

Rolling Town Halls are scheduled in each council district over the coming months. Sometimes, city councilmembers join the mayor. Typically, the rides start and end in parks, community center parking lots, businesses or neighborhood amenity centers.

Ride of Silence

The Ride of Silence honors bicyclists who have been injured or killed while riding on public roadways. Since 2003, bicyclists of all experience levels and ages have gathered to ride at a slow pace, in silent procession to raise awareness and ask that other road users share the road with bicyclists.

The ninth annual edition of the Fort Worth Ride of Silence is scheduled for May 16. Registration is at 6:30 p.m. at the large gazebo on Trinity Park Drive (east of Crestline Road). The ride departs at 7:15 p.m. and follow a 10-mile route through downtown, the Near Southside and the Fort Worth Zoo area at a leisurely but steady pace. Helmets and lights are encouraged.

Tour de Fort Worth

Later this summer, join FitWorth and Mayor Price to kick off the 2018 Tour de Fort Worth on July 1.

The Tour de Fort Worth is a celebration of the Tour de France that gives cyclists a chance to experience different parts of the city. FitWorth will host numerous organized rides, including walkable and kid-friendly routes. Last year’s event engaged more than 400 cyclists over 21 days.

The series rolls out at 8 a.m. July 1 at Joe T. Garcia’s, 2201 N. Commerce St. The rides will run through July 22, ending with a final ride celebration. View a list of ride dates and locations.
