Bike in the Heart of Texas
Our PlacesForBikes team visited all 10 Big Jump cities this year: Austin, Baltimore, Fort Collins, Los Angeles, Memphis, New Orleans, New York City, Portland, Providence and Tucson. In Austin the team met with elected officials, business leaders, high-level city staff, and local advocates. A city hall meeting was followed by a reception where the Mayor spoke of his time in northern Europe in 2016 with then U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx. He described the power of experiencing biking in those cities and how it shaped his perspective for Austin’s future.
