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 Park, a picturesque neighborhood in Central Austin. Met Deaton, our two tour guides, got the tour lowdown, donned our helmets and we were off. We headed through neighborhoods, then east of town, to a fantastic trail system, winding up in downtown Austin to a wonderful catered meal and libations. The tour guides were patient, knowledgeable about Austin and more than accommodating to our requests. We snapped photos at iconic spots in Austin, rode along the river and into Zilker Park, ending up at another wonderful park in downtown Austin. Great time, great adventure, great food, great family memories. I highly recommend Texas Bike Tours.
