Exploring South Central Austin

This is an eclectic, neighborhood, circular ride to explore the history and development of Austin just south of the Colorado River and enjoy the unusual, quirky shops; eating establishments (not all of them are restaurants) and heritage homes there.

This is an eclectic, neighborhood, circular ride to explore the history and development of Austin just south of the Colorado River and to enjoy the unusual, quirky shops; eating establishments (not all of them are restaurants) and heritage homes there. With four or more guests, we will tour Casa Neverlandia, an artist’s concept of a chalet with fire poles, or possibly an original Dawson home from the late 1800s. Beginning with a ride over the Colorado on the Pfluger Bridge, you will come to understand how south Austin developed differently from North Austin. The flow of the river, the flow of people to the area along with the changes in the economy of Austin brings us to where we are today. Travel through natural beauty and man-made wonder to experience South Austin.

Best Bike Tour in Austin!

My friend and I came to Austin for ACL and decided to book a tour on our last day in town. We came across Texas Bike Tours…and good thing, because it was the best part of our trip!  We took the South Austin tour that explored the SoCo district and we loved it! We had a great tour guide who knew his information and Deaton was a sweetheart. She had water bottles with lemon (my favorite) ready for us and after the ride (in 98 degree weather, ugh!) had frozen washcloths with rosemary on hand.  This was by far the best tour I have taken in any city and would highly recommend it…Thank you Texas Bike Tours for making our last day in Austin amazing!
