Bike demos, beer tasting, and live blues music promise a fun and safe biking experience for the whole family



Hill Country Galleria, premier lifestyle center located west of downtown Austin in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, is teaming up with the City of Bee Cave Parks & Recreation to host the first ever Bicycles, Blues & Brews event, in celebration of the city’s launch of the connectivity plan, an initiative to create hike and bike trails connecting residential neighborhoods to retailers in an effort to reduce traffic congestion and provide a safe and convenient alternative to driving.


The ultimate goal of the connectivity plan is to identify and develop an off-street network of pedestrian walkways, hiking trails and bicycle lanes that connect neighborhoods, existing parks, schools, retail developments like the Galleria, and other key locations throughout the city. With a trail network, the city hopes to increase transportation options, improve air quality, reduce roadway congestion, boost economic development, and help to connect citizens with their community.
