Austin Is Bike Awesome!

I went to Austin, Texas last week for a little vacation to visit friends.  I had a feeling it would be a popular place with bikes since this is where that popular cyclist by the name of Armstrong is from.  What really surprised me, was most of the people I saw on bikes were not the spandex clad Lance wanna-be’s.  They were just normal people doing normal things like going to work, food shopping, or having a beer at a bar enjoying the live entertainment.  They even had a bike in movie while I was there.  I wish I had brought my bike.   I’m posting some pics that inspired me.

The busses have bike racks. I checked NJ transits website and they claim to have these racks on their busses in the Princeton to Atlantic City areas. Has anybody seen them in our area?

I’m not a fan of graffiti, but this mural is pretty interesting.(If you look close, you can see cyclist and his bike.)

Though bike racks are everywhere, this artistic bike was locked to a street sign.

  1. Oh btw, I’m not trying to push Austin (or any other place) on you, I just wanted to take in as much bike culture and bring that to Morristown. I think we’re doing pretty well:)

  2. cool!!! I have heard Austin is really great!
