Calling all East & Southeast Bike Commuters: Your commute just got a whole lot easier.

Shady Lane and 5th

The eastern portion of the Lance Armstrong Bikeway (LAB) is open! Commuters can now take the LAB from the Montopolis Bridge all the way into downtown. The newest portion connects commuters south of the river with an off street paved bikeway that links up with the on-street portion of the LAB. While this is an important piece in the network, there is much to be done. The upcoming boardwalk on Lady Bird Lake will create a connection into downtown for folks living south of the river and also create another connection between East and West Austin. Pleasant Valley will need a makeover to become pedestrian and bicycle friendly and to complete an important piece in Austin’s growing bicycle network.
