Austin Needs an All Ages Bicycle Network– And You Can Help Make That Case to Policy Makers
Amplify Austin with BikeTexas and you’ll make a difference in critical education programs for policy makers, like guided tours of Austin’s protected bike lanes and making sure transportation professionals understand why we need an all-ages bicycle network. Many state and federal agencies have offices in Austin, and we’ve seen a dramatic increase in their interest in Wellness Rides for employees. These rides not only result in more state and federal employees understanding the needs of people who ride bikes, but also lead to more people wanting to ride bikes more often themselves.
BikeTexas’ education programs also include the KidsKup Adventure Zone at events like Viva Streets and the Austin Bike Fest, where the next generation of safe, legal bike riders can get their start with a balance bike on our fun course. Last year’s Amplify Austin day allowed us to do more KidsKup events in more places. Don’t miss out– plan today to Amplify Austin with BikeTexas.
