Took my bike to Austin from the 25th until today. Weather turned very cold (morning with wind chill was in the teens). Got in a couple rides, which was less than I'd planned, but I wasn't on my winter bike so all was good.
Bicycle Sports is a great shop. One guy at the Lamar location was bend-over-backward helpful getting me some local maps and routes. Unfortunately for me, I didn't pre-load Garmin Communicator on my tablet, so I couldn't program in the rides.
While Austin seems to be a cycling town, Texas isn't the best place I've been to ride. Cars seem to give minimal space (though I only got one out-and-out F-You!). They will also regularly make right turns in front of you without signaling (whether you're on a bike or in a car) so you have to be pretty heads-up and expect them to do so.
Would like to come back when the weather is a bit nicer, especially since may local shops have loads of organized groups rides and I really wish I could have taken advantage of those so that I could have spent less time trying not to get lost and more time wearing out the legs!
