Fort Worth Mayor, Betsy Price, a long time cycling enthusiast, was profiled in Bicycling magazine. Described as America’s most bike-crazy mayor, she regularly conducts “rolling town hall meetings” while cycling through the city’s disparate neighborhoods, connecting with the Fort Worth community. She launched an initiative called FitWorth that includes programs devoted to wellness, including the Tour de Fort Worth, which overlaps with the Tour de France and features 21 days of cycling events. Her goal is to make Fort Worth healthier while encouraging community engagement. Fort Worth is one the nation’s largest cities and one of the fastest growing.
