THOUGHTS FOR THIS WEEK
Bicycles are on my mind this week because we are (somewhat surprisingly) a city that’s gaga for bicycles and I’m seeing more out on there on the road. There are several groups and plans happening and I wanted to be sure YOU knew about them! Houston’s City Council recently adopted a “Bike Plan,” which has the goal of making Houston a safer, more accessible, “Gold Level Bike-Friendly City” (awarded by the League of American Bicyclists) by 2027; you can read all about the plan here. BikeHouston is working with the city on the plan – the goal of BikeHouston is to advocate for bikers to make roads safer in all ways. Critical Mass Houston is another local bicycle organization – they host a monthly nighttime ride (the next one is this Friday, 6/28 – details are here) and their website has a terrific calendar of weekly bicycle events (here). And finally – you should know about the Houston BCycle program! It’s a bike rental program in which you can use bikes from one of the 92 stations throughout central Houston – if you want to ride around downtown but don’t want to strap your bicycle on your car, rent one instead. It’s a super fun way to cruise around without a lot of baggage. Check out this week’s VIDEO PICK for more about them.
Summer is a great time to take stock of your life and connect more to yourself, as the pace is slower and the days are longer. I’m hosting a special workshop for exploring your vision for the next year – “Ignite Your Vision (Board)!” will take place at Body Mind and Soul this Sunday, June 30, 2-4pm and I’d love for you to join me! You’ll dive deep into your personal purpose through a short writing exercise and then we’ll spend time making vision boards. See all about it below.
