Custom Bike Tours in Austin, Fredericksburg and Beyond
Cycling on unpaved roads with little to no vehicular traffic, winding through fields and farm-ranch lands. Low-key fun with friends and family.
Riding on paved roads for efficiency on a road bike with drop-handle bars for speed or a more casual ride on a hybrid with flat-handle bars for upright riding.
Trails & Mountain
Biking off-road through woods, fields, and rock gardens over roots, obstacles, drop-offs, and logs with climbs and descents. Challenging Adventure.
Biking is just moving around the city on a bike. Not a bike ride. Faster than driving in the central city while immersed in the culture of the city. Reminiscent of the childhood joy of riding a bike.
If you want to ride a bike, we support you in creating a carefree, fun, and as challenging an experience as you wish. You and your cycling experience are unique and so is the support you may need.
You deserve to ride the right bike for the specific cycling experience. Working with local bike shops, we can select, reserve, pick-up, deliver and return rental bikes.
Guides are chosen to match guests’ personalities and cycling expertise. You ride and converse with a friend who is a local and knows the terrain.
Eating & Drinking
Nutrition is needed for cycling. A celebration enhances enjoyment. A personal chef is waiting in the kitchen to create for you.
I found Texas Bike Tours on Trip Advisor and reached out to Deaton over a year ago to plan a bike trip for my 50th birthday.

We had the most wonderful day with Deaton & Dennis. We chose the 50-mile gravel ride in Castell. It was absolutely beautiful - the wildflowers were amazing. From pick up in Austin at Mellow Johnny's to drop off, we experienced a 5-star day. The bikes we rented were great, the food prepared (for special dietary needs) was delicious, the ride...
Take a bike tour, that’s what! We contacted Texas Bike Tours and arranged a family outing. A number of participants were from out of town. Where do you get bikes for all? Not to worry, Deaton, the tour company owner got the stats on what we needed and had the bikes and helmets waiting for us. We arrived in Hyde...
This was an amazing tour that was customized not only to fit the locations we wanted to see, but matched to our personalities. Through email correspondence, Deaton learned about our group (two couples) and laid out the perfect route for us. The route included some of the tourist hotspots, but even better, included off the beaten path sights that suited...
This group of friends take annual road cycling trips all over the world. Temecula, Solvang, Tucson, and Italy are a few trips they mentioned. They enjoyed the TXBT custom-routes designed with their cycling experience and comfort with cycling in mind, the SAG wagon that followed with the nutrition they enjoyed, and the camaraderie they developed with the local guides. The...
Deaton is the most engaged bike tour operator we have experienced anywhere. Her objective is to get every detail just right so her clients have a memorable experience. We have been quite satisfied with bike tours we have taken in cities all over the world, despite most of them being "cookie cutter" and many time in groups. Deaton's tour will...
