Ride Along With Our Austin Office On The Annual Project Bike Tour
Each year, WGI’s Austin office organizes an employee bike tour of some current and past projects, conveniently located around the WGI office. The bike tour originated through a small group of passionate employees who love to cycle, and has evolved into one of the most anticipated events of the year, with about 30 associates attending this year.
Engineers and other professionals from every department pitch in every year to suggest project stops, help compile the map, and speak about the projects at each of the stops on the tour.
“The bike tour has steadily grown from maybe 4 or 5 projects to 10 or so this year so it’s awesome. Some of the projects we visited on this tour were ones we have visited over the past few years, so we got to kind of fill in the blanks of what’s happened since. It’s definitely my favorite event of the year!” – Siri Soth, Civil Team Leader
While several Austin office associates already have their own bikes, with some even biking to work on a regular basis, WGI also steps in to provide rentals for those who don’t.
In essence, the purpose of the bike tour is to get out of the office for a bit and socialize with team members in a laid back and fun environment. The tour provides an opportunity to learn about projects that different teams are working on, hear about the small nuances and interesting details that came up during development, and see in person just how much of an impact WGI is making in our local community.
“I think the bike tour is important because I don’t think a lot of the young engineers realize how much of an impact we have on this city. Within this 5 mile loop, we’ve seen 12 of our projects.” – Nick Corbet, Project Engineer
“Being new to Austin, it’s really great to see all the different contracts we have around here and all the different projects we’ve done. Then to intertwine all these really great local spots to just stop and see; these bars, the area; I’ve never seen anything like this!” – David Gerber, Transportation Project Engineer
