Linda Armstrong, mother of two time Tour de 
France winner, Lance Armstrong, also belives in our mission. She is the acting Spokesperson for the Texas 
SuperCyclist Program.

Linda Armstrong, mother of five-time Tour de France champion, Lance Armstrong, also believes in our mission. She is the acting Spokesperson for the Texas SuperCyclist and SuperCollege Projects.

The education part of our mission is primarily handled through the Texas Bicycle Coalition Education Fund (TBCEF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. TBCEF does business as SuperCyclist.org and information about our Texas SuperCollege Project can be found at www.SuperCyclist.org.

Our vision for bicycle education includes non-cyclists as well as cyclists. We believe that any effort that raises the awareness of cycling in the general public is beneficial to the safety and future of cycling. More importantly we know that motorists who are exposed to a relatively small amount of safety information about cycling tend to be more aware of cyclists on the road.


Earth Share of Texas represents the Texas Bicycle Coalition Education Fund in workplace payroll deduction plans throughout Texas.

Programs for Cyclists

Texas SuperCollege Project:
The Texas SuperCollege Project is designed to have student teachers certified in the Texas SuperCyclist Project curriculum as part of their teacher certification process. We will be working with a group of universities to provide training and material to programs that choose to install the program in their education track. Information about our Texas SuperCollege Project can be found at www.SuperCyclist.org.


Programs for Non-Cyclists

Driver Training:
This program is designed to be used by Driver Training professionals as they train new drivers. It will provide class-room and student material to raise awareness of the special techniques to interact with cyclists on the road. We will continue to develop this program at a low level while applying for grant funding.

Transit/Fleet Operator:
Based on the award-winning Capital Metropolitan Transit Authority (Austin) transit operator safety training, this program will include instructor guide, classroom presentation and operator materials. We expect this program will be applicable to school bus operators as well as other fleet operators, such as USPS or FedEx.
