Cycling in Austin, TX
Austin is the capital of weirdness in Texas (and proud of it), and there’s a young population in the city that is very keen on moving around on two wheels. Austin’s bike commuters make up 1.3% of all commuters, and their number is growing year after year. The city has had issues with acquiring the tag “bicycle friendly” – bike lanes were used for parallel parking of cars regularly, new roads were being built without bike lanes, and it had a lack of biking trails. However, Austin seems to be working hard on being more bike-friendly, and it looks the effort has been paying off.
“Keep Austin Weird” is a motto that was adopted to promote local small businesses. And among those small businesses, it’s easy to find plenty of bike shops. Austin’s creative population makes the city a place where bikers should be able to find easily vintage and custom bikes and accessories.
