Sierra Club membership meeting: Bike Austin!

Happy Hour / food and beverages: 6-7 pm

Socializing and informal discussions on current events:  6-7 pm

Announcements and program begin at 7 pm

Topic: Bike Austin!

Presenters: Annick Beaudet and Chad Crager

Learn about Austin’s upcoming Bike Plan Amendment and Urban Trails Master Plan. Austin is one of six cities partnering with the Green Lane Project on a two-year program to implement protected bike lanes, also called green lanes. The next-generation bike lanes are separated from traffic and sidewalks, and make riding a bike for short trips an attractive option for more people. Austin’s network of green lanes is growing rapidly, with new lanes on Rio Grande, Bluebonnet, Barton Springs Road, 3rd Street, and more.

Annick Beaudet, Program Manager with the City of Austin Public Works Department, Neighborhood Connectivity Division, is responsible for the planning and implementation of bicycle and urban trail related infrastructure, consistent with the City's Bicycle Master Plan. Ms. Beaudet has been an avid transportation bicyclist in Austin for over 30 years. She has an educational background in Kinesiology and Urban Geography from the University of Texas at Austin.

Chad Crager, Project Manager, is responsible for managing the planning, design, and construction of bicycle and urban trail infrastructure. Chad has been an avid cyclist in Austin for over 7 years. He has an educational background in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University.


Consider biking, carpooling, or taking a Cap Metro bus to the meeting.

Free parking is available after 6pm on San Jacinto, Trinity, and nearby streets.

      In general, children are welcome at our events. Meetings such as this would likely be above their level, unless in high school. Children who have the ability to keep up with the group and complete the event are welcome on our hikes, when accompanied by parent.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
