Bike Route Planned From Downtown Austin To Formula 1 Track
Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 05:06 PM CDT
The City of Austin and Circuit of The Americas have created a bike route to get spectators from downtown to the Formula 1 race track in Southeast Travis County.
On Nov. 16-18, organizers expect 300,000 extra people to be here.
"There's an enormous amount of people that we need to move out there for the F1 race and we needed to provide an alternative ride to get out there," Ally Putnam from Circuit of the Americas (COTA) said.
The route begins downtown and takes you out to Richard Moya Park. There will be signs along the way with printable maps of the route online.
"The route takes a little less than an hour to ride out 11 miles. It should be the best way of getting in and out of downtown Austin,” Putnam said.
Since the release of this bike route, the majority of rental shops in town have already sold out.
John Dawson co-owns Rocket Electrics. He is just one of the rental shops in town that have been sold out for weeks. He’s been open for less than a year and with this many people coming into town, he and his competitors can expect to be booked for that weekend.
"There are a lot of different ways to get out there. And we want to make sure we get everybody out there as quickly and as safely as we can," Dawson said.
The City of Austin will also have links on their website to set you up with a guided tour. Those that aren’t comfortable with biking there themselves can go along with a group that will leave from 1 Texas Center downtown.
