Austin Bike Tour
Austin Bike Tour
Rachel is a style blogger addicted to travel. She moved to Austin for school but stayed when she fell in love with the local color and vibrant small-town in a big city vibe. As she says: "Our motto is 'Keep Austin Weird,' ...but we're also some of the nicest people you'll ever meet!" Check out all of Rachel's great suggestions for Austin as she cruises around on our Willow 3:
 
City Bike
Radio coffee shop (@radiocoffeeandbeer) is Rachel's favorite place to grab a cup of much-needed coffee (or beer). It's also a bar with live music, outdoor movies, and trivia nights. 
Austin Bike Tour Barton Creek
The Barton Creek Greenbelt is a great place to stay cool in Austin's oppressive heat. Dog friendly, great trails, and free admission make this a must-see in the city.
Flower Child Austin Bike Tour
Flower Child is one of the only places in Austin to get strictly health food according to Rachel. She suggests ordering the "Mother Earth."
House Wine Austin Bike Tour
Rachel's favorite wine bar in Austin, House Wine has an outdoor patio and a cheese plate that "is what dreams are made of." With a wine list that's always changing and live music every night, it's a guaranteed good time.

Zilker Austin Bike Tour
"When the weather is nice in the fall and spring time, you can find me here pretty much every weekend. It's my favorite spot to sit and read a book by myself or have a picnic with friends. Austinites bring their dogs to play, and if you're lucky, one will come sniffing up to you and let you pet them. It's the peak of my day! I wish every city had a park like Zilker.
Tacodeli Austin Bike Tour
You can't talk about Austin without talking about tacos. Tacodeli's are Rachel's pick for best in the city.
Juiceland Austin Bike Tour
Rachel's favorite at Juiceland: The "Wild Child" smoothie.
Paperboy Austin Bike Tour
Like tacos, food trucks are an intrinsic part of the fabric of Austin cuisine, and Paperboy is one of the best. Rachel suggests the Sweet Potato Hash.
Gibson Street Bar
"If you're looking for a bar away from all the crowds and lack of free parking downtown, you have to check out Gibson Street Bar. It has a chill vibe with a friendly staff, and they almost always have some kind of special going on. I love coming here for trivia nights every Tuesday!" 
East Austin Succulents
East Austin Succulents is a great place for all of your greenery needs.
Hillside Farmacy
The grapefruit jalapeno margarita at Hillside Farmacy is enough of a sell, but the brunch is what keeps people coming back for more.
Auditorium Shores
Don't go to Austin without visiting Auditorium Shores! It has the best view of the city skyline and is the perfect place for a bike ride.

City Bike Helmet by Thousand
Frances (Belmont, US)
Scooter Perfect

I bought this for my scooter-loving boyfriend. The look and function is PERFECT for scooter use. The snap allows quick-on-off for the urban transit connections and zipping to meetings in the city. The brim is just enough to prevent glare while still keeping the helmet compact for errands and trips to the grocery store. And did I mention that he LOVES the look of it? He said it distinguishes him from the bike crowd in a very smart way.....Still kicking it at 60!

Thanks so much for sharing Frances. We're glad you're finding many uses for the helmet. -Ryan Zagata

Nantucket Lightship Basket
Lindsay (Sarnia, CA)
Love it!

The perfect size and just what I was looking for. The shape of this basket stores my things securely and has a lot of room inside.

Thanks for sharing Lindsay. We're big fans of Nantucket Baskets as well. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 8 Speed
Raphael Roos (Spicer, US)
Ride in style

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

Thanks so much for sharing Raphael. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Bedford. -Ryan Zagata

Swept Back Handlebars
Blake Hebold (Falmouth, US)
Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata
