Austin is a city with nationally coveted hike-and-bike trails. There is a 10- mile long trail borders Lady Bird Lake (known locally as Town Lake). Many roadways have been revamped in order to be bicycle friendly. According to the City of Austin, there are currently more than 6,000 Austinites that wake up during the week and bike to work.
Even though the City of Austin is doing what they can to provide a safe environment for cyclists, we continue to see too many bicycle wreck victims who are injured because auto drivers fail to see the cyclist.
Motorists and cyclists must both follow the rules of the road. When it comes to a car against a 30-pound bike, the car will always win against a defenseless cyclist. Bike accident usually results in serious injuries as broken bones, painful brain injuries, neck and back injuries, as well as road rash, abrasions and contusions.
