Blink and you miss something in Austin.

In a city steeped in cycling history, the references to it's legacy are abundant and unexpected...

 I love that cycling in Austin is both a cultural activity with its own art,

and a way of life, with its own equipment.

I love that the desire to cycle is intergenerational and that you do genuinely see kids on the street enjoying their cycling!

Austin's cultural activity extends to  street art which appears in a particularly spontaneous way and ends up being as good as some of the more nebulous grant-backed street art I've seen in my time!

and what better way to experience the culture of Austin, than by bike!

 Thanks to Thor USA for delivering this lovely bike to my doorstep!
