Lets make Grapevine "The Bicycle Capital of Texas"
The Magic Pill
What if there was a Magic Pill that could:
* Make you loose weight * Make the air cleaner * Make the roads less congested * Lower healthcare cost * Raise property values * Make you feel happy * Make your neighborhoods safer and quieter * Save money on road maintenance and expansion * Make you more connected to your neighbors * Save money on vehicle gas and upkeep * Increase 'clean' tourism dollars * Attract high-tech businesses * Increase your sense of community * Increase your overall health * Encourage local shopping and keep tax money local * Have your city recognized as a leader for sound environmental issues * Decrease the costly childhood and adult obesity epidemic * Enjoy the correlation with overall wealth * Make your city the envy of the state
If we could invent a pill that did just one of those things, we would be millionaires. Well, that pill has been around for a long time, and it's not even a drug. It's called BICYCLING. It does all this and more. Want some statistics on our ills? Just click here.

1. Environment - It is getting harder for us animals to breath the air. 2. Economic- It's getting more expensive to live at a lower quality of life. 3. Health- Our youngest generation has a lower life expectancy than there parents.
We don't even have to sugar coat this pill. You know it is the fun-ist way to a happy, healthier, wealthier population. Now we just need to work with the city of Grapevine to make it a safer option so more folks can ride more often.
Even if you don't want to ride your bike more in Grapevine-don't you want more cars off the road and out of your way? Fewer cars on the road mean an easier drive for you, when you have to drive.
“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.” ~John F. Kennedy
