I'll be in Austin from November 24th - Friday November 28.
Looking for a group I can ride with and a bike to rent.
Female, I ride a Trek GT, 51/52.

Bicycle Sport Shop 1426 Toomey Rd Austin TX 78704-1000 512-477-3472

They are just south of downtown and are very active in the cycling community.

I'm in Dallas, but I highly recommend them

Thanks for the plugs Dave.

As for road bikes we rent Lemonds and Trek 5200's and stop by the front of the shop (rentals is in back) for some local ride maps.

Ask for Ted (Teo) if you're really bored.

I eluded to bikes and such but never mentioned that I was speaking about Bicycle Sport Shop. If you go to the website there is a link for online rental reservations. Or call and ask for the rental department.
you work there, teoteoteo???AFrizzledFry

i'll be going to school at UT Austin starting next semester, and your shop has been recommended to me as well (by a friend named Geoff from the Dallas Area). i'll have to stop by sometime and say hello.

Thanks for the info.
A guy from one of my riding groups (Santa Monica, Ca) actually told me about this website and said there is a really knowledgeable guy, i.e., TeoTeoTeo...funny how you came up.

By the much? Oh, and are there racing clubs that train during the weekday mornings?

Thanks for the compliment--It's good to know I have SOME people fooled (laughs). There is a good club named the Austin Flyers but I am not sure they do any weekday rides. On Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 we have Spin Classes--you use your own bike and can rent a trainer. Cost is like 5 or 6 bucks and all goes to the instructor. It's a good workout.

You can link to the Austin Flyers from our site and I think the url is
