Fritz Park Joins Growing List of Places in Hutto, Texas to Offer Bicycle Parking

FritzParkBikeRack2016 TakenbyHuttoPARDOn Saturday, February 27 at 10am, Bike Hutto will be doing a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new bike rack installed at Fritz Park by the Hutto Parks and Recreation Department. Following the ribbon cutting, Bike Hutto will be leading a family-friendly bike ride along the Cottonwood Creek Trail. All are welcome to attend the ribbon cutting, as well as the bike ride afterwards.

Fritz Park is the largest park in Hutto and is located at 400 Park Street. This will be the park’s first bike rack and will get added to the other amenities that Fritz Park has to offer such as a pavilion, picnic sites, playscape, reflection pond, sports amenities, and trail. The entire park will be undergoing a series of improvements and renovations in 2016 to better serve the Hutto community.

Bike Hutto director, Jessica Romigh is very happy about the addition to Fritz Park, especially since it comes so soon after the new Creekside Park bike rack that was celebrated in January of this year. “The City of Hutto Parks and Recreation Department are really doing their part to help make Hutto’s parks more bicycle friendly!”

Bike racks play an important role in the lives of both the recreational and the commuting bicyclist. By providing a safe place to be able to secure their property, anyone riding a bike at any age can be encouraged to travel to that location. Bike racks also help to eliminate the clutter, hazards, and tree damage that comes from haphazard bicycle parking.

A bike parking needs assessment will be done by Bike Hutto in 2016 to determine other areas within Hutto, Texas in which bike racks would be beneficial. The assessment will consider potential locations for future bike racks, as well as the quantity and type of bike parking needed. Each potential location will then be prioritized based on current and future bike traffic, cost, and overall feasibility.

Bike Hutto is a non-profit bicycling advocacy organization located in Hutto, Texas. Their mission is to encourage and foster a community environment within Hutto in which bicyclists of all ages can socialize, receive safety education, and voice their needs for building better bicycle friendly infrastructure. Bike Hutto values the importance of creating a bicycle friendly community within the City of Hutto focusing on the benefits (Transportation, Health, Economics, Recreation, and Environment) that bicycling provides.
