Bike to Work Day
Fort Worth Police Department Bike Patrol Officers and Fort Worth Police Department Chief Halstead were presented with new high-quality bicycles by Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) President, Dick Ruddell, on Friday May 18, 2012.
National Bike to Work Day seemed to be a great day to present officers with this generous gift. Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, an avid cyclist, rode her bike to the event along with other cycling enthusiasts. The event was held at The T’s Intermodal Transportation Center at 9th and Jones St. in downtown Fort Worth and boasted the largest turnout for the event in recent years. The event promoted organized group bike rides to showcase the city’s new bike lanes and routes, and highlighted the development of a new Bike Share Program to be implemented in Fort Worth.
