Bike Austin believes that Austinites of all ages and abilities have the right to safely access healthy food, public transit, jobs, schools, parks and fun on two wheels. Through volunteer-led, grassroots campaigns, political endorsements and direct advocacy, Bike Austin pushes for protected bike lanes and pedestrian safety improvements so that anyone-from age 8 to 80-can safely explore their neighborhood, get to work or school and enjoy everything Austin has to offer.

Featured Campaign – Protected Bike Infrastructure and Pedestrian Improvements in Rundberg Ln and Cameron (Dessau) Rd
Rundberg Ln and Cameron Rd are two of the most dangerous streets in North Austin. These streets serve as major thoroughfares transporting people who walk, people on bikes, and people in busses and cars to their destinations daily. Bike Austin, along with business owners, community leaders, and organizations, request significant safety improvements including traffic calming, better and more frequent pedestrian crossings, and protected bike lanes to these streets. These improvements will curb reckless driving, create a more inviting pedestrian environment, foster local business, and encourage the use of public transit.
