The Austin Duathletes would like to invite you to join us for our summer monthly bike rides! Our first ride kicks off on Saturday, June 13th from the Flying Saucer.

What are the distances?
Well, we are certainly glad you asked! We will be offering two distances - 25-miles and 45-miles. Each group will have a lead rider to help guide you through the route.

Do I have to have experience?
It would be helpful if you have basic bike handling skills and are familiar with proper cycling etiquette. However, we welcome all newcomers to the group and will help you out on your first ride with the club!

Can I bring a friend that is not an Austin Duathlete member?
Of course, anyone is welcome! The more the merrier, we always say...

Safe Passing Bill Passes Texas House and Senate!

Monday, June 1, 2009 2 comments

The final version of the Safe Passing Bill, SB 488, was passed yesterday by the Texas House. Today, the Senate voted on it, and overwhelmingly voted to pass it.

That was the final step for the bill to complete in the Legislature. Now, it will be sent to Governor Perry, and we are cautiously optimistic that he will sign it into law. We will know the outcome by June 21, the last day the Governor can sign or veto bills.

Awesome news for cyclists in the Lone Star State.
