Bike East: Lance Armstrong Bikeway, Butler Trail, and the Boardwalk (Friday)

Bike East: Lance Armstrong Bikeway, Butler Trail, and the Boardwalk (Friday)

This cycling tour showcases many of East Austin’s innovative bicycle trails and pathways, including those found on the Lance Armstrong Bikeway, Butler Trail, and the Boardwalk. East Austin is a lively, rapidly redeveloping (some would say gentrifying) historically low-icome area across I-35 from Downtown.  The tour will make frequent stops to discuss context, constraints, success stories, and lessons learned. Bicycle facility highlights include one and two-way protected bike lanes, conventional bicycle lanes, shared use paths, trails, bridges, dedicated bicycle signalization, and bicycle parking facilities at transit stations. The tour will discuss the process of planning and building these facilities, including the public process component.

Led by:
City of Austin staff and Bike Austin volunteers

WalkShop: Bike Infrastructure, East


This tour will travel by bike. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes, wear comfortable business casual attire, and bring sunscreen. Bikes, helmets, and refillable water bottles will be provided.
