Save your bike touring for Saturday and see it all! Have fun, stretch your legs, and discuss design considerations and lessons learned with Austin’s premier bicycle-program engineer. Learn about Austin’s context-sensitive approach to creating an “all ages and abilities” bicycle route network, as defined in its recently updated Bicycle Master Plan, which emphasizes protected facilities. This three-hour tour route will showcase a string of Austin’s best bicycle infrastructure work over the last five years — including both painted and protected lanes, trails, bicycle signals and more.
Nathan Wilkes, City of Austin, Active Transportation Engineer
