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.
When I was planning a birthday surprise for Brian, I wasn’t sure where to start to find the right routes and make sure we had the right gear. Thankfully I found Deaton and Texas Bike Tours. I explained to her what kind of routes we wanted, how long we wanted to ride, and how comfortable we were with traffic levels...
A few themes that you will find in other reviews of Texas Bike Tours are Deaton's uniquely tailored experiences, thorough planning, and attention to detail; I wholeheartedly agree with all of them. My contribution to the accolades is her flawless execution of a tour with an additional level of complexity - one involving three generations, including the need for a...
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. I'm the planning type and wanted to have a great experience for my big milestone birthday. Deaton worked diligently with me to set up a bike tour for four couples through Fredericksburg to the...
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...
