City offers free bike rides for Bike to Work Day


Grab a helmet and get active this morning by celebrating Bike to Work Day alongside the city.

The community will gather for a celebration at Austin City Hall starting at 8 a.m. with free tacos, coffee and giveaways.

A few things to remember around bikes:

  • Over 80% of bicycle crashes happen at intersections
  • It’s important to wear reflective clothing during dark hours
  • Drivers should keep a distance—take at least three feet of space when passing.

Residents can find the most comfortable, safe bike routes via the 2022 Austin Bike Map, or rent a MetroBike with the code B2WD2022.
