Want a say in Austin’s bicycling landscape?
The City of Austin wants to know about your biking habits, and what kind of paths and routes you’d like to see developed in the future.
To take the survey, go to http://tinyurl.com/kdnmd8y. It took me less than 5 minutes.
Then, on Nov. 12, cyclists are also encouraged to attend the Cities for Cycling Road Show at St. David’s Episcopal Church, 301 East 8th Street.
Experts in urban design and bicycle planning from across the country will talk about how they’ve made their cities more people friendly.
Speakers will include Jon Orcutt, policy director at the New York City Department of Transportation (you can thank him for CitiBike NYC); Roger Geller, the bicycle coordinator for the city of Portland; and Nathan Roseberry, senior bikeways engineer for the Chicago Department of Transportation.
Registration starts at 5:30 p.m. Speaker presentations will run from 6 to 7:30, and an interactive open house on Austin’s bicycle plan will continue until 8:30 p.m.
And that’s not all!
The city will host more meetings Nov. 13 and 14 to present details about plans to create a network of bicycle paths in the city, including separated cycle tracks and urban shared-use trails, and gather input. For more information go to www.austintexas.gov/yourpath.
