Free Food, Free Beer—and a Great Cause for Cyclists

November 10, 2009

Once again there will be an opportunity this Wednesday and Thursday evening for you to lend a hand to your local cycling community. Before you go and read all of the details let me go ahead and say that like last week there will be free food and beer.

Bike Texas collected thousands of signatures around the state in support of the 3-foot passing law that the state legislature passed overwhelmingly, but then went on to be inexplicably vetoed by our finely coiffed governor.(read about it here)They need our help getting those names and addresses off of the petition and into a database so that there can be another strong push to get this passed next session.

What: Volunteering for 3 hours, entering names from petitions into a database. If you can’t do all three hours, come for an hour or two. Bring your own laptop if you can. If not, they DO have extra computers. The database is a web based system so ANY computer that has a wireless card will work.

When: Wednesday and Thursday November 11th and 12th from 5-8pm.

Where: Bike Texas Offices
1902 East 6th (6th and Chicon)
Austin, Texas 78702

**IMPORTANT**RSVP: (tell them you are from Social Cycling ATX) This really helps them determine how many volunteers they need to accommodate.

BRING A LAPTOP IF YOU HAVE ONE: There are only 6 extra computers. If you have a laptop, bring it so that others without one can help out. Write on the event wall and let me know if you have a laptop or not.

Here’s more about the volunteer opportunities

Help make Texas a safer place to cycle. Hang out with friends in a very relaxed atmosphere. And eat FREE FOOD and drink FREE BEER.
