Cyclists take a break in Burleson Heights on way to F1

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For the second year, a bike route to the U.S. Grand Prix made a path through our neighborhood, and area residents and trail supporters organized a rest stop to help at a bike crossing and to provide free water, snacks, maps and bike repair supplies.

We appreciate the help of the Burleson Heights residents and South East Austin Trails and Greenways Alliance members who volunteered! Thanks to Bike Austin and Circuit of the Americas for their support, which included providing a shade canopy in the weekend’s record-breaking heat, bike safety information and solar-powered lighting.

And if you stopped by during your ride, we enjoyed the visit. Feel free to leave a comment or use the contact form to say hello, and let us know where you call home.

    Hello,

    Just want to say a big thank you to the Burleson Heights folks who gave us a helpful rest on all three days of the Grand Prix.
    Your help (and water!) made the journey much easier, and it was good to know we were on the right route.
    We had a great time in Austin!

      Sean & James, we’re glad you had a good trip! We enjoyed talking with you at the rest stop and getting reports about the route and your F1 experience.

      Kudos to your East Austin B&B for providing bicycles.
