2020 bike map has a new look
Thursday, October 15, 2020 by Tai Moses
The city’s Active Transportation staff decided they wanted a special look for the 2020 Austin Bike Map. So they asked students from the 2019 Youth Arts Safari Summer Camp to design the cover art; specifically, to “create illustrations showing how riding a bike makes them feel.” The result is the most colorful bike map to date. In return for their creativity, the students received lessons from Sophia Benner, Transportation’s street design project coordinator, on using a bike map and they learned hands-on bicycle skills and riding tips from members of the Ghisallo Cycling Initiative. The map depicts the best places to cycle in Austin and the best routes to get where you want to go. It also includes “routes differentiated by comfort level and highlights safety guidelines for people on bicycles, scooters and all other nonmotorized micromobility devices.” Get your printed copy at open bike shops or download the digital version.
