This Friday, some central Austin streets will be filled with bicycles—even more so than usual—as it’s the general locale of the finish line for the BPMS 150 (a very popular bike race from Houston to Austin, held to raise funds for people affected by multiple sclerosis).

Presumably, there will also be spectators and supporters, but what there won’t be, on some streets, is car traffic.

Here are the street closures for the event, courtesy of the Downtown Austin Alliance.
