Bicycle Travel Can Save Small Towns

Our friends, Russ and Laura, of traveled through our Texas Mountain Trail region on their big 2009-2010 trip, staying at several of our cycle-friendly hotels including the Hotel El Capitan in Van Horn and the Gage Hotel in Marathon.  Read one of their posts here.

They make some great points about the economic benefits of bike travel to small towns, and we agree.  While we face some special challenges due to the long distances between some of our communities, the benefits are definitely there.

We're doing what we can to promote safe bike travel, and the (many) cycling resources in our region.
