Oak Cliff might be a neighborhood known to many in Dallas as the arm-pit of the city, but Oak Cliff’s Bishop Arts District is thriving with local food, shopping, art and more. Plus, a really cool bike shop, Oak Cliff Bicycle Company (The OnYourLeftCycles of the South) and local cycling advocates, Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, are supporting a cycling culture very unique to this city – the idea that a bike can be used for more than recreation and sport, that a bike can be practical everyday transportation. The New York Times recently covered the Bishop Arts District.
