About this Event

Celebrate the literary and whimsical spirit of Austin; join us for a Summer “Lit” Scooter Ride & Tour of the Central Library. Those summer reading lists might never get finished, but open a new chapter and ride along with us for a tale you’ll never forget.

All participants will ride for free with VeoRide Scooters. We’ll meet at Terrazas Branch Library for a safety briefing on how to ride electric scooters safely in Austin and what hazards to look out for along the trip. We’ll be demo-ing VeoRide’s e-scooter, which has large wheels with a shock-absorbing features and mechanical, disc brakes for increased reliability.

We'll also have tacos for our participants courtesy of VeoRide!

Once we are prepared for the ride, we’ll scoot from the Eastside to Downtown Austin, as our guides lead you across the I-35 crossing. We’ll end at the Austin Central Library, which includes a garden area and deck with beautiful views of downtown and Lady Bird Lake, for a docent-led tour and literary exploration!
