prizes
3. And bring a happy hour filled with snacks and drinks!

Join us at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 4, at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop to hear from Texas Department of Transportation (TXDoT), Capital Area Mobility Planning Organization (CAMPO) and City of Austin officials answer questions about our road projects and how we can work together to make them more bike and feet friendly.


Have a barrier on your favorite cycling route?
Want a highway shoulder swept?
Why answer that bike survey that showed up in your inbox?
Have ideas on making cycling more accessible to Central Texans?
Curious about that Prop 1 bond package?
Maybe you might even want to complain just a little bit?


The October ACA meeting has traditionally been the official public meeting of the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDoT) wit
h the cycling community. This year we've decided to make it more informative and actually, fun! We've invited TXDoT to present along with the City of Austin Bike/Ped program and other agencies that produce cycling infrastructure and education programs at the state, regional and local levels. We want to demystify how are dollars are spent and decisions are made plus this is our chance to give these folks some constructive input on bike projects past, present and future.

Now for the fun part, the public meeting will be followed by a social hour with door prizes, snacks and adult beverages. Door prize tickets will be given out during the public meeting so come early and get your voice heard. Trek Bicycles has donated a Trek District urban bike to be raffled off to raise funds to support ACA's education programs. Raffle tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. Available at the party or email txdotmeetingataustincycling [dot] org to arrange ticket purchases before the meeting.
