Road Biking in Austin

When I moved to Austin, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get a road bike or a mountain bike. I always had a mountain bike which I used in most of my city rides.

What I found out was, Austin is great for both road biking and mountain biking. It has great trails like the Barton Creek GreenbeltΒ on the mountain biking side and for road biking Austin has many dedicated bike lanes that makes it easy and fun to ride.

I finally decided to buy the best folding bike and have enjoyed ever since:

Here is one the routes that I like: “I call it the 360-620 route”

Best part of Austin is that you get good hill training around.

Can bike for long distances before you hit the signal. Helps to improve average speed.

Lake view is breathtaking. Someday I’ll get a boat / kayak and go on it! πŸ˜€

Nice view of the lake

Overall, I really enjoy road biking in Austin. More important of all the biking community and people around are very friendly!

  1. Yay!! Good to see you blog again.. I agree, road bike kicks ass and the acceleration is faster than the mountain bike by multiple folds. Nice pics!

  2. Good to see you back after a while. Nice bike too! When I saw the “360 road” i was a bit disoriented. It took only about 5 mins to realize that its right side traffic in U.S (laughs)
