The event creator says
Let’s meet up at Jo’s Coffee for food and drinks. We’ll play nice with the cars and do some rounds downtown to prep ourselves for our eventual destination: East Riverside.

The plan is to meet up with Bike Austin to show our support, share our experience of riding on one of the most dangerous parts of E. Riverside, and to show our strength in numbers both on the road and in front of the politicos that are scheduled to be present. All before BA begin their Survive Riverside Ride:

“The Survive Riverside Ride will highlight the urgent need for improvements on this critical corridor. Come out in your finest extreme sports gear to show how dangerous the street is in it’s current configuration…and return to The Buzz Mill for a celebratory (and free!) pint.” https://www.facebook.com/events/1653041788307566/

Social Cycling Austin rides AS traffic and NOT AGAINST it. We stop at red lights, yield the right of way and let cars pass as best we can. We don't block intersections. We are nice to both our fellow riders and the other traffic on the road. LISTEN TO the volunteers helping to lead the ride. They are some nice folks and have your best interest in mind. If you have any questions about the rules, I suggest you check here: http://bicycleaustin.info/laws/austin.html

REMINDER: The goal has always been to create a safe environment for all riders, but we cannot control, nor do we desire to, every rider's behavior. We promote personal responsibility, and it is each rider's responsibility to take care of themselves, and if they choose to ride with us, then they accept those risks inherent in riding a bicycle with a large group of other people riding bicycles.
