Description
The tour brings into your line of vision that which makes Austin unique – openness and acceptance without judgment.

A brief look at downtown Austin and adjacent districts and neighborhoods in the west, north, east and south.  This includes many Austin landmarks, entertainment districts, natural and man-made sites as well as the capitol and The University of Texas.  As you cycle, you experience the edge of the hill country and the flatness of the blackland prairie as Austin sits between these two regions of Texas. 

The experience begins with a custom bike fit at a local bike shop to ensure you have a casual carefree ride. Rather than a bike ride, we want you to be in the city on a bike.  (We will hire a bike for you at an additional charge.)

From there, we ride NW through a quiet neighborhood with opportunities to see and climb on a project dedicated to street art and to hear about and perhaps experience a dirt bike park.  Heading S, we move past public art, ride over the Colorado River and cycle beside the river on the hike and bike trail to Zilker Park with Barton Springs pool.

Traveling E on city streets or on the hike and bike trail, we head to the SoCo entertainment and shopping district stopping for look-see at Jo’s Coffee Shop, home of the well known “I love you so much” mural.  We could move further south to explore this district or head N to cross the Colorado again to travel along the trail to the Rainey Street District. Literally completely different from SoCo except they are both highly entertaining. Your pathfinder will continually fill you in on the history and local lore of each district.

 After Rainey, “Dirty 6th” is just a few blocks away.  We could cycle down 6th or travel on the more bike-friendly 4th street. Periodically during the tour, your pathfinder will give you choices of paths to take. This is one of those times. We could then head north through or beside downtown Congress Avenue to the capitol and then on to The University and Drag area.

From there we roll downhill through a quiet neighborhood back to the start with big smiles on our faces. Riding a bike and smiling go together.

How much we see and ride is driven by the pace chosen by you as our guests.
