The Safe Routes to School Event Handbook is an extensive guide to organizing biking and walking events for your local school and community. In the Handbook, BikeTexas leads you through all the steps of organzing events such as a Bike and Walk to School Day, Bike/Walk Rodeos and Bike/Walk-A-Thon Fundraisers.  These fun events  teach children bike safety skills while improving health and well-being and making your neighborhood safer for biking and walking.

BikeTexas Kids Kup events were developed to inspire the next generation of mountain bike enthusiasts as well as introduce children to basic bicycle safety and handling skills. 

Texas colleges and universities participated in a pilot program from BikeTexas called College Active Transportation Safety in the Summer and Fall 2012. Funded by the Texas Department of Transportation, BikeTexas CATS addressed the need for information and education and for reducing motor vehicle-related pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities by training college student leaders to give presentations to incoming freshmen.

Important Health Warning About Playing Video Games
Photosensitive Seizures - A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these "photosensitive epileptic seizures" while watching video games. If you start to feel headaches or an upset stomach while playing Jenny's Neighborhood, stop playing immediately.
