Bike Austin to host Survive Riverside ride/walk

Wednesday, December 9, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

On Saturday, Bike Austin is hosting an awareness-raising Survive Riverside ride and walk, an event intended to highlight the dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians who travel on East Riverside Drive. The effort is part of the orgnaization’s campaign to encourage installation of safety improvements – such as protected bike lanes – along the thoroughfare. According to Bike Austin’s announcement about the event, the East Riverside corridor was the site of “over 32 life-altering injuries and crashes” and “at least 3 deaths” between 2010 and 2014. Area residents, city staff and City Council Member Pio Renteria will be speaking at the event, which begins at 1 p.m. Participants should meet at the Midway Field House, 2015 E. Riverside Drive.
