We were told that bikes are the best way to get around Austin, so Chad, Kate and I wanted to see if that was true. Being that it was 80 degrees and sunny after a week of rain during South by Southwest, bike rentals were a scarce. Luckily we found a few at Bicycle Sports Shop, one of Austin’s many bike shops, and hit the trails.
We set out on the Town Lake Trail, crossed a bike/pedestrian bridge to the north side of the lake (which looks remarkably like a river but is, we were assured, indeed a lake), up to the Capitol Building and back across the lake via Congress Ave. Check out the video from Kate’s Flip and my helmet camera below.
