According to Bicycling, Austin places #13 among the best U.S cities for bicycling. However, says Bicycling:
Biggest Challenge: Though tireless bike advocates have a near-perfect record for projects they’ve championed, involvement from the thriving cycling community remains sporadic. Info: lobv.org
We are taking that as a challenge to grow our ranks.
Current members as of today: 225 individual members
Membership Goal: 500 individual members
Last Day of Membership Drive: Friday, June 15th
We are asking your help to spread the word! You are our best asset, and you can tell your membership story to others you know.
Ask your friends, family, and co-workers to join Bike Austin to help make Austin a world-class bicycling city. Members support our work that brings more funding for bicycling and walking to Austin, such as $5MM of bike/ped facilities along North MoPac, $3.3MM just for bike safety on Travis County roads, and a steady flow of new family friendly bikeways across Austin. Ask them to visit lobv.org/join or call 512-773-8775 to join Bike Austin!
If we meet our goal, we will hire a part-time membership coordinator! That means we will be able to establish more member benefits, such as Bike Austin member cards, member discounts to Austin businesses, more social and informative events, more ability to involve our members in the organization, and more work on behalf of Austin bicycling.
Those joining or renewing by Thursday, May 31st will be entered to win a Planet Bike front light.
Those joining or renewing by Friday, June 1st will be entered to win a pair of tickets to ACL Live at The Moody Theater. Tickets are available for any show through November 1st, except ACL tapings and independently produced concerts.
Prize entries are cumulative. In other words, if you join or renew today, you are eligible to win all remaining prizes during this membership drive. So don't wait to get started: join or renew today! (One prize per person.)
The future waits for no one. Also, see the prize mentioned above, enjoy new member benefits if we meet our goal, and look forward to living in a world-class bicycling city.
We are working toward a goal of 15,000 members to rival peer organizations in other cities. Our membership drive is today’s step.
