Make your own way to meet your guide in downtown Austin, and arrive a few minutes early to get outfitted with your bike and helmet.
When ready, pedal with your guide along the shady Butler Trail that skirts Lady Bird Lake. Your guide shares informative commentary about Austin's history and contemporary sights along the way. Stop at landmarks such as the Congress Street bridge, which is home to one of the world's largest urban bat populations. You'll also have the chance to splash around either Barton Springs or the Deep Eddy, the oldest spring-fed pool in Texas.
Wrap up your tour with a visit to the HOPE Outdoor Gallery, a park that provides a venue for muralists and street artists to display their work. You can even leave your mark at this ever-changing art project.
