What you'll do

You'll visit the famous Treaty Oak and get the chance to learn about it's long and sometimes strange history as a location for war and peace parties with various Native American Tribes. You'll get a chance to see one of the few remaining active moon-towers; was Jack the Ripper really in Austin first? We will take a ride through the University of Texas Campus to see the iconic tower that Charles Whitman made famous in 1966 and learn about school's founding in 1883. You will also take a pedal down to the State Capital grounds to talk about the founding of Texas and the struggle that took place in naming Austin as the capital.

I have been traveling since 2010 and after exploring and becoming a guide myself I now I truly believe the best way to learn about a city is through local guides and stories. I also believe that cycling is the greatest and most pleasurable form of transit ever invented. It allows one to explore the nooks and crannies of Austin in ways no motorist ever could. So by combining the two I am really excited to share the feelings of freedom one can feel in a metropolis and share Austin's rich cultural history with you. : )
